William (Bill) Eaton, 66, of San Tan Valley, AZ passed away in San Tan Valley, AZ on July 15, 2016.

Bill was born in Oakland, CA on August 19, 1949.  He was the son of Lucille (Eaton) Hayes and Willard Eaton. He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Carlyn, and daughters Sandy Rodrigues of San Tan Valley AZ, Renee Caster (Scott) of Phoenix, AZ, and Karen Shogren (Peter) of San Tan Valley, AZ. ; three grandchildren, Kent Rinker (Jessica) of Hawaii, Tiana MacGregor of Phoenix, AZ and Brandon Rodrigues of San Tan Valley, AZ and great grandchildren, Landon Rickman, Laramie Rinker and Sawyer Rinker of Hawaii.  He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Michelle Ysunza.

After high school, Bill enlisted in the U.S. Army serving from 1967 to 1973, stationed in the U.S., Germany and two tours of Vietnam.

Bill worked for many years for University Art in San Jose, CA before moving to Arizona in 2008. His last employment was with Home Depot in Apache Junction.  He loved golfing, camping and hiking and last participated in a half marathon in San Jose, CA in 2007.  But most of all he loved his wife and family and enjoyed holidays and making his famous tacos for them.  He will be missed beyond comprehension.

The family wishes to thank everyone at Banner M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Banner Hospice for all of their support. At Bill’s request, no services will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Banner Hospice 275 E. Germann Rd., Suite 110, Gilbert, AZ 85297 are appreciated.

    So sorry for your loss, Carlyn. Bill will be remembered with fondness. He always made us laugh and was so kind to us. He made us feel like part of the family. Our thoughts are with you always.

  2. Karen says:

    He will be missed by many but we will celebrate his life and laugh at the memories of his orangutan impression and smile when we think of his teaching us girls how to swim or playing Santa just to name a couple. We will always love him and know that he is another guardian angel liooking over us.

    It’s was an honor to have known and worked with Billy. I learned so much from him during our years together at University Art. He would always light up when we talked about Carlyn and his family.
    Yes, he could beat me at golf. RIP my friend.

  6. Sheilagh Driscoll says:

    I will miss you, friend. I’ve known you a long time. Even though we weren’t in touch by phone, Carlyn kept me pretty up-to-date on all your goings on, your camping trips, etc. Had a lot of fun back in the day in Oakland. Prayers to you Carlyn and the rest of the family. Thank you for posting this.
