About Bill

William (Bill) Seitz, 77, of San Tan Valley, passed away in his home peacefully on Thursday, December 23, 2021, with his wife, Peggy, holding his hand.  Bill was born February 23, 1944 in Homestead, PA and was the 9th child, out of 11 children, to Gustave and Cecilia Seitz.

 

Bill proudly served his country in the Army where he served in the Charlie Battery, 3rd Battalion, 1st Artillery.  Along with becoming an expert level shooter and a sharpshooter, he also received the Marksman Badge with Missile Bar.  He was incredibly proud of the top-secret clearance he had.

 

After returning home from the service, he married his childhood sweetheart on July 15, 1967. Bill then completed his Degree in Electrical Engineering from Pennsylvania Technical Institute and began working for Digital Equipment Corporation.  In 1976, Bill and his family moved to Phoenix, AZ.  He retired from Digital (now HP) and focused on his two passions, family and woodworking.

 

Bill loved his family.  His wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were everything to him.  And he was everything to them.  Bill loved being a Dad, and loved being a Poppy even more. Bill was a kid at heart when around his family, always teasing, laughing and playing.  His sense of humor was unmatched, except perhaps by his son Mark. Bill was so proud of his family, and reminded them regularly how much he loves them and is so proud of them.

 

Even though Bill lived in the Valley of the Sun the majority of his life, he was a Pittsburgh Steelers fan to his core.  Aside from loving his Steelers and his Country, Bill loved softball and woodworking. Bill played softball for many years and was an incredible athlete.  He even coached baseball and softball for his children when they were little. As for woodworking, Bill had an impressive workshop with an even more impressive array of tools.  He made everything from signs to cabinets to furniture.  In fact, at one point, Bill had made furniture in every room in his daughter’s home, including bunk beds for his grandchildren, desks, coffee tables, even the cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms.  Prior to retiring, Bill also designed and built two homes for his family.

 

Bill was preceded in death by his two sons, Bill Jr and Mark.  He is survived by his wife Peggy, daughter Jennifer, grandchildren Jessica (Jake), Kaitlyn and Billy (his Termite), his great grandchildren (Kiyah, Landon, Kadyn, Kyla, Kayson, and Kynlee) and many other family members and dear friends.

 

A celebration of Bill’s life will be held in late February 2022.  Information on those services will be provided at a later date.
