 FINDLAY - William R. "Bill" Honigford, 51, of Findlay, died 11:08 a.m. Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at his residence.  He was born December 18, 1968 in Lima to the late Victor Gilbert and Doris Ann (Smith) Honigford.  His mother survives in Ottoville.

  Bill is survived by six siblings: Gene (Cindy) Honigford of Delphos, Deb (Roger) Eickholt of Lima, Ron (Julie) Honigford of Glandorf, Diane (Brent) Fackler of Kenton, Darlene Honigford of West Jefferson and Brian (Amy) Honigford of Lima.  He was also loved by many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

  He is preceded in death by two sisters: Denise and Mary; and a brother: Joseph.

 Bill graduated from Ottoville High School in 1987.  He had worked at both Menke's Construction in Fort Jennings and Philips Display in Ottawa before working the past 19 years for Cooper Tire in Findlay. He was a member of the Findlay Moose Lodge.

Bill will be greatly missed by his family who loved him dearly.
