STEVENSVILLE – William E. ‘Bill’ Nelson, loving husband, Daddy, Papa, Papa Great, brother, uncle and friend to many slipped into the arms of Jesus on Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016 at his home in Stevensville. He was born in Bozeman on Aug. 20, 1941 to Marie McLees Murray and James Murray. He never left Montana except for his service in the Marine Corps and a brief time of living and working in Washington. After his discharge from the Marine Corps, he lived in Ennis and learned the art of meat cutting in his future father-in-law’s grocery store, worked as a city police officer in both Ennis and Townsend and then spent the last 25 years of his meat cutting career in Whitehall at TG’s Market and at his own meat market, Butcher Bill’s. He was a meat cutter by trade for 43 years and was fondly known as Butcher Bill to all who knew him and were his regular customers but he was also a mechanic and wood worker on the side. He was a talented man who could do and fix anything and he will be greatly missed. Bill is survived by his wife of 52 years LaDon; daughters, Jami Seccomb and Cami (Warren) Nogle; grandchildren, Chaz, Kelsi, Austin and Cati; great-granddaughter Kambrynn; sisters, Betty (Ken), Joyce (Les), brothers, Jim (Suzanne) and Bert; brother-in-law Roy and sister in law Jonnie (Cliff) and many much loved nieces, nephews, friends and his Koinonia Family. There will be two services held to celebrate Bill’s life. Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 6 p.m., at Light of the Valley Assembly Church in Stevensville, followed by a potluck. Saturday, Jan. 30 at 2 p.m. at Whitehall Assembly of God Church with food and fellowship following. Our Bill would want any memorials to be sent to Koinonia of Montana, the ministry he loved and was a part of for 20 years. P.O. Box 656, Stevensville, Montana 59870.
