William J. 'Bill' Whipple
Feb 11, 1949 - Dec 15, 2013
William “Bill” J. Whipple of Elk Grove, Ca. passed on Sunday, December 15, 2013 surrounded by family and friends at Sutter General Hospital after a 23-year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Bill worked for General Motors and the UAW LETC Job Corp for 25 years, in which he was able to fulfill one of his greatest passions: teaching. Bill is survived by his lovely wife of 43 years, Linda; his sister Susan Litsey; his daughter Kari and son in-law Rick; his grand-kids Isaak, Khloe and Rikki; and his son and daughter in-law. His family finds comfort in knowing Bill is now in the loving arms of God, no longer bound to his broken body but glorified through his faith. Viewing and funeral services will be held later this week.
