Wil­liam “Bill” Sarver of Bluffton, SC, and for­merly of Ross­ford, OH died Sun­day, Oct. 21, 2018, at home.

The beloved Mr. Sarver, who was 66, worked in med­i­cal sales for more than a quar­ter cen­tury and was an avid ten­nis player and golf en­thu­si­ast, and a lov­ing hus­band, fa­ther and friend to all.

Mr. Sarver was born on April 11, 1952 in Toledo, OH, the son of the late Arthur and Rita Sarver. He was a 1974 grad­u­ate of Bowl­ing Green State Univer­sity, where he earned a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in sci­ence and was a mem­ber of Sigma Al­pha Ep­silon. Fol­low­ing grad­u­a­tion, Mr. Sarver be­gan his ca­reer in sales with LAUDA- Brinkmann, LP. Bill re­tired after many years of ser­vice as a Sales Man­ager for the com­pany’s south­east ter­ri­tory. While liv­ing in Bluffton he was ac­tive in, and en­joyed, the Hilton Head-Sun City com­mu­nity.

Bill al­ways had a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and a last­ing smile on his face. He was a co­me­dian, and his spe­cial laugh was con­ta­gious. For decades he was a very loyal THE Ohio State Univer­sity Buck­eye foot­ball fan. He loved mu­sic and movies and hang­ing out with his bud­dies and at­tend­ing par­ties and gather­ings at Sun City.

Mr. Sarver was pre­ceded in death by his lov­ing wife of 21 years, Tonya “Toni’’ Paige Sarver. He is sur­vived by his son, Alexander Sarver and sig­nif­i­cant other Erin Wy­man; sis­ter, Carol Lind and her hus­band Terry and sons Shawn and Bryan Lind; brother, Jef­frey Sarver; brother-in-law, Woodrow “Woody’’ Paige and his daugh­ter Shan­non Hunt Paige, and a mul­ti­tude of friends.

Bill was an in­cred­i­ble care­giver to Toni, who suf­fered with breast can­cer for many years. He said her ill­ness was the worst thing they ever had to go through. They loved to travel all over the world to Hawaii, Europe, Asia, Mex­ico, es­pe­cially to the U.S. ten­nis Open and Wim­ble­don.

Bill wanted ev­ery­one to know how much he loved them.

Alex Sarver said: “”My dad was my hero, my role model and, most im­por­tant, my fa­ther. I for­ever will miss him, and love my dad and my mom.’’

A memorial ser­vice will be held at 11a.m., Satur­day, Nov. 3, 2018 at Sauls Fu­neral Home, 90 Sim­monsville Road, Bluffton, SC 29910. The fam­ily will be re­ceiv­ing friends one hour prior to the ser­vice at the fu­neral home. A re­cep­tion cel­e­bra­tion of Bill’s life will fol­low at Sun City.
