Bill Danner was born July 20, 1936 in Clarke County, Iowa to John and Lucy Heston Danner. He attended country schools and Leroy and Derby schools, graduating from Derby High School in 1954. He went into the farming vocation after graduation. Then added real estate sales, and later maintenance man for the city of Woodburn. Bill was married to Ellen Whitham on September 24, 1961, at the Last Chance Church. They were blessed with three children: Dave, Karen, and Mary.

He enjoyed music, playing the guitar and other instruments, and singing along, mostly country and some old folk songs. He even wrote some songs.

He was good at visiting and could usually tell a good story with a bit of humor added in.

He liked tractors, 1950’s cars, machinery, tools, and playing cards, but his favorite pastime was spending time with his children and grandchildren and the family get-togethers.

Bill passed away July 11, 2022. He will be dearly missed by Ellen Danner; children: Dave (Jill) Danner, Karen (Jon) Danner, and Mary (Darrell) Coddington; grandchildren: Trevor Danner, Bailey Danner, Sophie Danner, Sara (Chris) Moore, Amy (Miguel) Carrillo, and Randy Watsabaugh; great grandchildren: Jaylee Moore, Paisley Moore, Kipley Moore, and Scarlette Carrillo; brother, Herman (Lois) Danner; sister, Flo O’Neal; sister-in-law, Pauline Danner; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents, John and Lucy Danner; brothers, Dan Danner and Jerry Danner; and brother-in-law, Wilford O’Neal.
