Corvallis - William L. “Bill” Taggart, 82 of Corvallis, MT passed away Jan. 15, 2019 at St. Patrick Hospital. He was born Jan. 3, 1937 in Newark, Ohio, the son of the late Lawrence Taggart and Evelyn (Kirkpatrick) Taggart. Bill joined the Navy and was an underwater demolition frogman. He worked for Ohio Power as a lineman and then went to work as a mechanic for a SOHIO gas station in Heath, OH. He later worked for Snap-on-Tools, as a field rep and then district manager for a 27 year career. During his time with Snap-on, he purchased some land and started farming with his son. Bill wasn’t the type to sit around, so shortly after retiring, he joined the fire department in Hebron where he worked his way up to lieutenant and also became an EMT for a number of years. He was the mayor of Hebron, Ohio in the late 80’s. Bill and Karen moved to Montana in 2000 where they loved living in the country with some acreage and mountains all around them. They made many friends over the years. Bill could make friends just walking down the road and starting a conversation, no one was a stranger. Bill enjoyed working in his wood shop where he made furniture out of old barn wood. He even made a large seven foot tall cross for St. Mary’s church in Stevensville, MT. He also enjoyed fishing and hunting with his buddies. He would go to Memories Café in Corvallis where he could chat with all of his friends with a cup of coffee. Bill is proceeded in death by his Mother and Father, Brother Ronald, Wife Karen, Son-in-law Terry Mason, Great grandson Elijah Thomas Colopy, and Sister-in-law Juanita. Bill is survived by his son Mike (Mindy) of Corvallis MT, daughter Patricia Mason of Hebron, Brothers Richard (Linda) of Granville, Jim of Newark, John (Joyce) of Newark, Sisters Mary (Robert) Adams of Granville, Donna (Gary) Rutter of Newark, five grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. The family will greet friends on Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 10:00 A.M. until 12:00 P.M. noon at the Whitesitt Funeral Home. A memorial service will begin at noon.

to all the Taggart family,
Bill and I and all the Taggart family go way way back. So many fond memories from when we were just kids and the time period of joining the Navy and going through boot camp.
I got to spend a morning last summer eating breakfast with Bill and my brother Leo, I'm so thankful that I got to spend that time with him. I'll miss him.
May God Bless you all.
Harry Agin
