Bill was surrounded by his family as he slipped away from us peacefully, after a long battle with a lung disease.
Bill is survived by his wife of 23 years, Patricia (DeBurger); daughter and son-in-law, Julie Marie and Ryan; daughter, Amie Kathleen; grandchildren Leah and Ethan, Jordan and Jackson; step-brother James (Jim) Dorraugh; niece Filinda Dorraugh Farris, and many loving family and special friends.
Bill is proceeded in death by his parents; first wife, Kathy (Blair) Talbott, and step-mother, Vena Ester (Dorrough) Talbott.
A 1967 graduate of Linton-Stockton High School, and 1974 graduate of Indiana State University, Bill went on to become a medical technologist working at Greene County General Hospital (Linton, IN), Mary Sherman Hospital (Sullivan, IN), and the last 20 years at Covance Central Labs (Indianapolis, IN). Bill was a great son, husband, father, dad, papaw and friend. He loved being surrounded by his family and friends, being outdoors, making his lawn just right and the building of his pond.
