William H. Wilson
William (Bill) was born in Hannibal, Missouri on January 15, 1936 to Stan and Nancy Wilson. He lived in Missouri and California and finally settled in Ketchikan, Alaska where his parents homesteaded and built a home. He graduated from Ketchikan High School in 1954. Bill went on to join the Air Force and served stateside during the Korean War, earned a bachelors degree from Seattle University and began a career in recreational vehicle manufacturing.
Bill loved to putter in the yard or “play in the dirt” as he called it. He enjoyed cooking at holiday time. He liked sharing stories, especially of his time in the service and his time living in Ballard.
Bill spent the last 6 years living in Camas, Washington to be close to family. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren.
