Reece, Wil­liam “Bill”

The Sacramento Bee - - Nation & World -

Bill Reece was born in Sacra­mento on May 18, 1933. He passed peace­fully on Oc­to­ber 31, 2018, at the age of 85 in Hospice at the Carl­ton Elk Grove, CA. Bill had moved into the Carl­ton In­de­pen­dent Liv­ing in Fall 2013 af­ter the pass­ing of his wife of 57 years, Jean Reece, on Feb. 5, 2013. Bill was a car­ing fa­ther, suc­cess­ful busi­ness­man and gen­er­ous vol­un­teer. Bill is sur­vived by his two chil­dren, Su­san Reece and Hus­band Michael, and Russ Reece and his wife, Kathy. Bill built his busi­ness of Reece Book­keep­ing and be­came quite suc­cess­ful with a large clien­tele of in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses. In 2001, Bill re­tired and turned the busi­ness over to his daugh­ter, Su­san. Be­sides his busi­ness, Bill was a ded­i­cated vol­un­teer. He taught read­ing skills at the Boy’s Ranch and at lo­cal li­braries, vol­un­teered for the Sacra­mento Sher­iff’s De­part­ment for many years and also vol­un­teered for var­i­ous sport­ing events in the Sacra­mento area such as the Cal­i­for­nia In­ter­na­tional Marathon. Bill also vol­un­teered at the Sac In­ter­na­tional Air­port at the help desk. Bill elected not to have for­mal fu­neral ser­vices. In­stead, raise a glass in mem­ory of Bill and lis­ten to some Frank Si­na­tra. In re­mem­brance, also please con­sider a do­na­tion to the SSPCA or your fa­vorite char­ity.
