12/21/1942 - 04/10/2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of beloved husband and father, William (Bill) Holmes who left us on April 10, 2024.  There is no doubt that his departure has left a void in our lives that can never be filled.

Bill is survived by his wife, Madeline and his two girls, Kerri and Joanne, as well as his son-in-law, Jason and two grandchildren, Cassidy and Connor.

Bill was born in Baldwin, New York in 1942 and lived on Long Island until they relocated to Arizona in 2004.  He was retiring from a long career of driving semi-trucks hauling fuel and vehicles in the tri-state area.  Bill loved Arizona and was so happy they moved to such a beautiful place and loved to say the weather was “boringly nice” every day.  There was no doubt that he belonged here in the West as he always loved horses and dreamed of living the cowboy lifestyle.  He also loved his John Wayne movies!

He really enjoyed spending time playing golf with the Niners, Texas Hold ‘Em, and pool (he was “Trucker” Bill Holmes on the Breakers) at the local clubhouse with his buddies.  Those who knew him know he was full of great stories and always loved to tell them!

Though he is no longer with us in body, his spirit will live on in our hearts forever.
