Obituary for William Gardner

William  Gardner
William Louis Gardner, age 66, passed from this earth during the morning hours of Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at the William R. Courtney State Veterans Home in Temple, Texas. He was born to Mr. and Mrs. James E. Gardner in Fort Riley, Kansas on the 8th day of February 1951.

In his younger years William was enlisted in the United States Army. After serving in the Army he had discharged but then went on to serve in the United States Navy. In the Navy he moved through the ranks to eventually earn for himself the rank of Lieutenant. William earned his Master’s Degree of finance at the Naval Post Graduate School and then a Bachelor’s of Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas El Paso. He made his living as a civil engineer for the Texas Department of Transportation and for the City of Austin after which he retired and went back to work in the private sector and for Caldwell County. William was also a member of the Association of Professional Engineers.

Throughout his life William was a world traveler having lived in many numerous states and countries. He was very well liked throughout his circle of friends and family and was known to be very skilled in the art of marksmanship and as an accomplished gunsmith. While stationed at Ft. Bliss, William was a member of the Marksmen Team in which he competed very well.

In William’s later years he could be found honing in his skills at gunsmithing or reloading his own ammunition. Having had a very dry sense of humor it was no easy task to get William to laugh at a joke. If you did get him to laugh then the joke that was told was definitely one worth telling again because it had to have been funny.

William is preceded in death by his mother and one sister.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his father James and his four children; Tricia Petersen of Charlotte, North Carolina, Michael Gardner of Tampa, Florida, Amanda Gardner of Miami, Florida and Stacy Gardner of Valley Mills, Texas as well as one brother John Gardner of Atlanta, Georgia.

A celebration of life for William will be held at a later date to be determined by the family.

Hewett-Arney Funeral Home of Temple, Texas is entrusted with the arrangements.
