On Thursday, July 25th, 2019, William (Bill) Anthony Pappas passed away suddenly at the age of 65. Bill, Billy to friends and family, was born on November 24th, 1953, in Oroville, California.
In his own words, the best and most important decision Bill ever made was to ask his beloved wife, Diana to marry him. Raising an eternal family was his greatest work in life. Bill led his family with quiet strength, teaching—often without words—how to love, give, serve, work, and have faith.
Bill was a creator; he loved to work with his hands. From gardening to woodworking, Bill never stopped making things. His creative talent shone brightest through the poems he wrote and the food he cooked. He wrote poems for most of his life, and gave them selflessly to those he loved. He created works of art with his food and shared them with everyone. His love, heart, and strength will be missed by all whose lives he touched.
Bill is survived by his wife, Diana, and seven children: Danita, Samuel, Russell, Jaeda, Randon, Casey, and Anthony.
Services for Bill will be held at 1403 S Wahanna Rd in Seaside on Saturday, August 3rd at 1pm.
