William T. Leary
August 6, 1942 - November 12, 2013
William Thomas Leary passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family and loved ones on November 12th, 2013, after losing the fight against amyloidosis and multiple myeloma. Bill was born in Lansing, Michigan and lived a full life of 71 years. During his life he also lived in Yuma Arizona, Chula Vista & Modesto California, and finally moving to Roseburg Oregon, after retiring from the Federal Government. All through his life he made a difference in those he met, by his quick wit and his ability to make everyone laugh at the smallest of things. All the way to the end he had his sense of humor, even saying at one point, "I hope that God is a good chiropractor, cause my head is killing me". He is now in the hands of our Lord and Savior, and standing at the gates of heaven with his mother Aggie, and his granddaughter Mya and all the others in his life that have passed before him. Bill is survived by his wife Barbara, his son Brian, step daughter Kim, and step son Mark, his brother James, and his sisters Janet, Judy, and Joanne. He is also survived by 3 step-grandchildren, Katlyn, Jerry, and Zachary.
