Obituary for William "Bill" Huxley III

Estacada resident, Bill Huxley, died suddenly on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, at his home. He was 65.

A celebration of his life will be held at 10am on Saturday, September 1, 2018, at Estacada Community Fellowship.

William Herman Huxley III was born June 7, 1953, in Pasadena, California to William Huxley II and Joyce (Freymann) Huxley. He was raised in Indio, California. In 1982, he moved to the Portland area where he met Dorothy "Dolly" Carron. They married in 1988 and in 1990, their son, Dalton was born. Seven weeks later, Dorothy passed away. Bill continued to raise Dalton while continuing to be a father figure in the life of his step-daughter, Amanda, who he regarded as one of his own children. He remarried in 1998. Shortly after, his daughter Carley was born. Bill devoted his life to his children and worked hard to provide the best life he could for them. For most of Bill’s working career, he owned and operated William H. Huxley & Son Landscaping. After he retired, he went into business with his son and they started Bear Creek Rustics in Estacada. Bill was a great asset to Estacada with his passion for log furniture and great personality.

Bill enjoyed woodworking and spent most of his younger years as a hunter and later years as a fisherman. He loved the outdoors and loved music and often shared both with his children. His philosophy was to always try to be a better person then the person he was the day before.

He is survived by his son, Dalton Huxley; his daughter-in-law, Kendell Huxley; his daughter, Carley Huxley; his step-daughter, Amanda Osbourne; his siblings, Clinton Huxley, Fonda Huxley-Keiper, Dennis Huxley, Richard Huxley and his beloved dog, Wyatt who has found a home with Dalton & Kendell

Mary Whitney & Sean Drinkwine of Estacada August 29, 2018 Bill, you will be sorely missed in the downtown core. We always enjoyed your sense of humor and witty replies. You were your own person and walked your own path. We leave you with a quote... "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however, measured or far away." - Henry David Thoreau

Shanna @ Dollar General of Estacada August 30, 2018 Bill will be missed my condolences to his family. He always spoke highly of you. This week's been quiet own at the dollar general. I will miss his daily stop in at the store. He always had a great story to tell as he was checking out with his cigarettes and a drink. He was the nicest customer anyone could ask for. If you were having a bad day, he always somehow made that day better just by stopping by. I have to work the day of his life celebration, however, I will say cheers and drink a sweet drink. (Aka Gatorade). Later I'll chug a Pepsi......bc I know that's what he would really want to drink. Rest in peace.
