Bill Bleavins was a husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. He was a businessman, sailor, soldier, golfer, sports fan, wood worker and reader. He loved Arizona, where he lived for almost 50 years, but never forget his Wisconsin roots. He had a keen sense of humor, and most who knew him can share a joke he told or a prank he played. He loved to tell is grandchildren stories about growing up in the 1930's and 40's. He was a devoted husband to his wife of 44 years, Marge. They loved to entertain, to listen to music, to play cards, to watch sports, and to spend time with family. He will be missed.
