Bill lived life to the fullest. He will be lovingly remembered for his wonderful smile, his constant efforts to give back to the community through Habitat for Humanity and thousands of wooden toys he made and donated to Toys for Tots. And for his 20 years of long distance bicycle trips with Diane and others. He wished to be remembered as someone who “tried to do what was good, fair, and right.”

A memorial service will be held at the Church of the Eternal Hills in Tabernash at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 24. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Church of the Eternal Hills or Habitat for Humanity of Grand County. Details and rememberances at www. GrandCountyMortuary.com.
