Bill G. Eastham, 87, known to friends as “Mr. Bill,” passed away peacefully at home on May 17, 2018.
Mr. Bill majored in journalism at Indian University graduating with a BA degree in 1953. He served two years as Quartermaster US Army. Other talents and jobs were journeyman typesetter, fine finish carpenter, farm editor and journalist for various Michigan newspapers and for 25 years had a small jazz group. He moved to Roswell, NM in 1977 worked for the Albuquerque Journal until 1980 when he joined NMMI as Public Affairs Officer, retiring in 1995.
He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Paula Kay, his daughter and his sister, Jeanette of Mason MI. His son, Paul Kevin, preceded him in death.
He loved bird watching, photography, singing in the church choir, needlepoint and cross-stitch. On average, he read or listened to a book a week. He played competitive Scrabble until his eyesight prevented seeing the entire board. He enjoyed Classical music and jazz.
He will be missed…his dry humor, his curly hair, being a walking dictionary, being stubborn and feisty.
