William R. Mead, 68, passed away on Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at his home in Hope, ID surrounded by his loving family. A private family service will be held at a later date.
Bill was born on June 19, 1953 in Bonners Ferry, ID to Gordon and Alice Mead. Gordon was an engineer for the department of highways in Idaho, giving young Bill the opportunity to visit all parts of the state as he grew up. In 1971 he graduated from Clark Fork High School. Bill served his country in the U.S. Air Force for four years, from 1972 to 1976, before returning home to Hope. In 1975 his daughter Andrea was born during his first marriage.
In 1977 he met Susan Lawson, and the couple were married five months later. Bill was working as a long-haul trucker at the time. In 1985, Bill started his career in the logging industry. That same year the couple welcomed their daughter Alicia into the world. In 1991, Bill graduated from North Idaho College with a diesel mechanic degree.
Bill was a family man through and through, living a quiet life in a beautiful place. He enjoyed coyote hunting with friends and family. When Alicia became more and more active in softball so did her dad, from cheering her on in the stands to coaching the team.
He is survived by his wife of 44 years Sue; daughters Andrea (David) Mead-Crone and Alicia (Tony) Larsen; five grand-children, Breanna, Madison, Dylan, Tre’ and Ole; great grand-daughter Jade, and a great grandson on the way; and his brother Gordon (Carolyn) Mead.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
