Bill loved to do crafts. He was a talented cross-stitcher with many beautiful pictures that he stitched. He loved to garden and saved many plants from certain death. He was an avid scouter and served in many scouting positions throughout his life. He was an eagle scout and a recipient of the silver beaver. He worked at different scout camps when he was younger. He was an avid genealogist who happily spent his time helping others find their family members. He loved history and his career reflected that. He worked at the Church History Museum, Wheeler Farm, and This is the Place State Park prior to his retirement in 1998. He often went to Nevada to help the Quilt Guilds there date and appraise quilts for people. Bill was a talented musician. He played the cello, piano, and organ and could always be counted on to accompany people if needed. He loved all animals and had many pets throughout his life.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the Rocky Mountain Care Center in Logan, Utah for the care and compassion they showed our father in the last few months.
