William “Bill” Ward

February 18, 1946 - November 24, 2015

My sweetheart passed away at home of Multi-Symptom Atrophy.  He was born in Fresno, California to Bernard and Alice Evans Ward.


After his dad died his mom married James Kell who was a great 2nd Dad.  Bill met the love of his life Pam Loftus in 1971 in Lompoc, California.  They were married July 14, 1973 in Ogden, Utah, later olemnized in the Ogden Temple.  Together they raised 5 children, warts and all!


We are so proud of his lifetime achievements in the Computer Field, in life, in family and in serving the Lord.  He enlisted in the Army and proudly served in the Vietnam Era.  Bill was a perpetual learner.  He never stopped taking classes in every topic over the years.  He was a super teacher, sharing his wealth of knowledge! He graduated from Weber State College.


He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in many callings over the years.  He cherished the years he served in the Bishopric.


He was a dedicated and amazing husband, dad, grandpa, great-papa, son, brother, uncle and friend.


His greatest joy was found in serving and supporting his loved ones and friends.


Bill is survived by his wife Pam, children Roxanne(Larry) Child, Scot(Billie Jo) Ward, Casey Ward, Dayna (Matthew) Weinberger and Jason Ward,  11 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.


Bill will live on in our love, our laughter, and our memories until we meet again.


Graveside Dedication will be Saturday December 5th at 1:00 p.m. at Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park 836 36th Street Ogden, Utah 84403.  From 2-4 p.m. our family would like to greet you and hear your stories and any Billisms you’d like to share.


In lieu of flowers please make donations to your favorite charity in Bill’s name.
