Bill was born on May 29, 1937 to Wilber and Lillian Bequeaith in Oskaloosa, Iowa. On September 26, 1975 he was united in marriage to Yorona Hedrick. He owned and was a mechanic at Davenport Brake Services with his dad and brother, Richard until he retired. After retirement he worked at Titan Wheel and then Midwest Wheel delivering parts. Bill was an active outdoors man; he enjoyed going hunting and fishing with his children and grandchildren. Daily he was out taking care of his yard and flowers. When the weather wouldn't allow for yard work, he would go walk at the mall. It was common for Bill to stop and tell jokes to anyone that would listen. Bill was a regular at Hardees', going every morning for his sausage, egg, and biscuit sandwich. Bill was very involved in his grandson's sporting activities and was know as "Buddy" to all the members of the Wildcat family. He very rarely missed a game and was always Morgan's biggest fan.
Those left to honor his memory are his wife of 45 years, Yorona; children Tiffany Bequeaith and Shaun (Diane) Bequeaith; grandson Morgan, Blake, and Carter; siblings Richard Bequeaith and Donna Hall; and nieces and nephews: Penny Hale, Dennis Bequeaith, Mark Bequeaith, Jeff Bequeaith, and Rick Bequeaith. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Wilber (Gene).
