Obituary for Bill Wilson

Bill Wilson Sr. Passed away suddenly January 26, 2012. Born on November 7, 1946, Bill began his life at TMC as a miracle baby weighing a mere two pounds. Contrary to his initial entrance into this world, the gentle giant led a life that touched all he encountered. As a graduate of Pueblo High School class of 1964, Bill began his adulthood working in the Anaconda mine, moving on to become an electrician for the UofA. Bill rose through the UA ranks to become the Associate Director of Facilities Management and one of the state's best stewards of financial responsibility, often being heard to say, "It's my tax money we are spending, we are going to spend it right". Bill married his sweet little Gail Ilene Clough on July 9, 1976 and they had six children. Bill always felt his family was his crowning achievement. Joined in heaven, by his deeply missed mother, Dorothy Wilson. Bill is survived by his father, Beyrl Wilson; brother, Ben (Patty) Wilson; beautiful bride Gail and their children, Penny (Jim) Gagnon, Catheraine (Mike) Scarbrough, Bill Wilson Jr., Frank (Donna) Hiltz, Sue (Jeff) Brewer, Jim (Patrice) Wilson, 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. The loss of such a patriarch and exceptional person will never be forgotten. Viewing will be held Thursday, February 2, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. with Services at 4:30 p.m. at ADAIR FUNERAL HOMES, AVALON CHAPEL, 8090 N. Northern Ave, Oro Valley.
