William “Bill” John Rairdan

Tonasket, WA

February 19, 1952 - July 25, 2018

Bill passed away July 25, 2018, after an extended battle with illness. He was born Feb. 19, 1952, to Glenn and Olive (Muggs) Rairdan. He lived in Oroville, Wash., until 1979 and then moved to Tonasket, Wash.
Bill was a truck driver at heart. He tried different jobs in the logging industry, but always went back to driving truck. When the logging started slowing down in the 1990s, he started hauling white rock and did this until he could no longer work.
Bill loved hunting, fishing and camping with all his friends and family. Most of all he loved his family and time spent with them. He always looked forward to the visits from his sons and granddaughters. The girls put a twinkle in his eyes.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents; two sons, Troy and Travis Rairdan; and a brother, Bob Rairdan.
He is survived by his wife, Connie, sons, Derek (Amber) Rairdan and Adam Rairdan; daughter, Lisa (John) Oliver; five grandchildren, Eric, Makayla, Annaka, Jessa and Kyia; one great-grandson, Trenton; two sisters, Pat Rairdan and Wilma (Alan) Grey; two brothers, Mike (Lana) Rairdan and Arnie (Tammy) Rairdan.
A memorial for Bill will be at 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, at the Tonasket Eagles.
Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel is caring for the arrangements.
