William G. Werth III ’62

William WerthWilliam Grayson Werth III ended his brave battle with cancer on January 1, 2017. He died at home, surrounded by loved ones.

He was a cherished husband of 46 years, a proud father and grandfather, and a loving brother and uncle. He was a friend to many. Bill appreciated the simple pleasures in life: sharing a meal and spirited conversation with family and friends, playing an exuberant bluegrass tune on his well worn guitar, and retreating to nature whenever possible. Come spring, the San Juan River will be short one big-hearted fisherman.

All of us who know Bill will miss his fierce devotion to loved ones, his strong-willed, candid views, his mischievous smile, his robust laugh, and his oh-so-sharp wit. Bill’s immediate family is forever grateful for the “TLC” from friends and relatives during this journey.
