William Witney Obituary - Hill Funeral Home


 A celebration of life service will be held December 4, 2021 12:00-2:00, at Hill Funeral Home.

I first met Bill 30 years ago when he was finishing his law degree. I was hired to teach German in in his place for the school year. I continued teaching at Hastings when Bill returned to school, and we were colleagues for many years. Bill had a unique wit about him, and he had many great stories to share over the years. Everyone at Hastings miss him.
