William Dickerson, 74

1943-2017

It is with a heavy heart to advise people who knew William Dickerson of his passing on Aug. 8, 2017, in Hayden, Idaho. He did it his way!

He was born Feb. 11, 1943, in American Fork, Utah, to William Edward (deceased) and Lois (Levig) Dickerson (deceased). Bill, as he was called by most people, spent his younger years between Porthill, Idaho, and Oak Ridge, Ore.

In 1959, the family made a permanent move to Bonners Ferry, Idaho. By that time his brother, Tom, had joined the family. After his father and mother divorced when he was 19 years old, Edgar Wells, (deceased) became his stepfather. By this union, Bill and Tom gained stepbrothers, Donald and Rusty; and stepsisters, Wanda and Barbara.

Bill was interested in car mechanics at an early age, which inspired him to acquire numerous junker cars to build one reliable fast car. There were numerous car building projects going on in the back yard day and night. Hard work was not uncommon as he continued to fine tune his love for mechanics, but his journey in life found him also driving truck, heavy equipment mechanic, Deputy Sheriff in Bonners Ferry, woodworking, equipment operator, and just about anything he could find to keep busy. Friends and family could always count on him for any task that needed done.

Survivors include children: Ron, Rhonda, Tami, David and Chris; girlfriend Kari Franks and her children; brother Tom; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

“This is your last rodeo, Bro.”

A celebration of life will be held at a future date, since he requested no funeral service. The place and time will be announced later.

Yates Funeral Home has been entrusted with the care of final arrangements.
