He was born on May 28, 1925, to William Reed and Estelle (Thompson) Durham. For most of his life he was a farmer. Bill loved to be with his family. He enjoyed playing in the rock pile at the back of the nursing home, and loved picking up and shelling pecans. He chewed tobacco whenever he got a chance.

He is survived by his sister, Lena Like of Gustine; and numerous great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his brother, David Durham; and four sisters, Mary Lou Braim, Ruby Crews, Rilla Braim, and Lilly Rowland.

We all knew Bill as Uncle Bill at The Hill. I was blessed to get to know him during my years of working at Western Hills. Uncle Bill loved being outside and loved gathering pecans. Then he would shell them. Always made my heart smile when he would proudly give them to so many of us. Uncle Bill always had a smile on his face. Never complained about a thing. Watched out for other residents and always let us know if they needed something. Uncle Bill had a kind soul, Heaven received a very special angel in Heaven when Uncle Bill went home to his Lord and savior. Praying for all of the family, but especially Nancy Braim, she will have that void without him working where she saw him everyday. Loved Uncle Bill! He will be missed, but it’s so comforting to know he is in his eternal home and we will all see him again. Sending loving thoughts and prayers. Tami Geye Martin.

We have fond memories of visiting with Bill for many years at Western Hills while we had family living there. He loved gathering & shelling pecans off those trees in the yard. He always seemed happy.
His family is in our prayers,
