Our loving dad, Bill Duckett, 86, passed away peacefully with his children by his side on July 18, 2017, in Fort Mohave, Ariz. He was born June 25, 1931, in Long Beach, Calif. to Lucy Ruth Mitchell and James Franklin Duckett.
Bill was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was called to serve in many ward and stake positions.
He graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in accounting. He spent most of his life self-employed. Bill’s favorite entrepreneurship was the New Bryce Motel and Restaurant in Hatch, Utah. He loved to hunt, fish, golf and cook. (He was the master of clam chowder.)
Bill will be missed greatly by his loving friends and family, son, Bill Jr. (Jesus Jornacion) of Paso Robles, Calif.; daughters, Terry of Ft. Mohave, Debbie (Randy) Hatch of Panguitch, Utah, Debbie (Duane) Reed of Ft. Mohave and Cindy (Chuck) Neuzil of Bullhead City, Ariz.
