He was a real estate broker for most of his long career. His local heritage was important to him and he spent time passing along family stories to his posterity. He had many life-long friends and enjoyed spending time with them. He loved his cats, golfing and cactus. He especially enjoyed planting and harvesting his tomatoes and sharing his bounty with his neighbors. He had a sharp mind, quick wit and amazing sense of humor. Bill was preceded in death by his wives Judith E. Markus and Frances Larson. He is survived by his daughters, Sydney Peterson (Tom) of Logan, Utah, and Stacey Hungerford (William) of Bakersfield, California. He is also survived by his five grandchildren, Maren Aller, Christian Hinckley, Burke Peterson, Kate Astle and William Hungerford and five great-grandchildren, Noah, Cole, Tess, Addison and Alivia. JoAnne Shaw Jordan, his loving companion for the last several years, also survives him. Bill will be fondly remembered and missed by his family, friends and neighbors. He lived his life to the fullest until just before his passing. He will be interred in the Visalia Public Cemetery.
