Obituary for William "Bill" L. Eddy
William L. Eddy of Sparta, Michigan passed away on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at Spectrum Health Renucci House. He was born in Benzonia, Michigan on August 14, 1939 and was the third from the youngest of 16 children. Bill retired from Gill Manufacturing in 2003. He was an excellent woodworker, building many things in his lifetime. He also enjoyed fixing and repairing small engines, especially lawnmowers. Bill had an amazing personality with a great sense of humor and could always get people to laugh. His family and friends will remember his infectious smile.

Bill was preceded in death by his mother, Jennie and 12 siblings.
As Bill had wished, cremation has taken place and no service will be scheduled at this time based on stay-at-home orders. Anyone wishing to make a donation in Bill’s memory may do so to Spectrum Health Hospice.
