It is with a heavy heart that I must share the sad news of Bill’s passing. Karl wrote a brief letter to the club that I am including below. Details regarding arrangement and services will follow in the coming days.

From Karl:


Friends and Family,

At 2:48 this afternoon Bill Powney took his last Breath after a long and painful fight that he faced with the courage and stubbornness typical of his approach to all challenges.

After nearly 2 years of defiance and telling cancer “you’re wrong and I’ll tell you why”… He decided it was time.

He died peacefully with all those he cherished most at his bedside.

I was unfortunate in having to break the news to him, and honored to be present to say goodbye.

May he rest in peace.
