Obituary: Kochevar, William J.

Age 58

KOCHEVAR, William J.

(Age 58) “Gone from our sight Not from our hearts” Will was born February 4, 1956 in Leadville, Colorado and passed peacefully into the Kingdom of Heaven, on October 27, 2014 after a valiant, courageous 3 1/2 year journey with liver cancer.

Will was a wonderful husband, father, brother, uncle and friend, a source of joy to all who knew him.

During his life, he loved to hunt, fish, golf, sports and the Zags.

He loved life and was always known for his quick wit and intellectual knowledge.

Will worked for the Social Security Administration as a senior attorney for the past 23 years and continued to work until his journey ended.

He leaves behind his wife of 40 years, Theresa; his son Jacob; his sister Linda; aunts, uncles, in-laws, nieces, nephews and many colleagues and friends whom he loved dearly.

The family would like to thank the doctors and staff of Sacred Heart Medical Center, Inland Imaging, Deaconess Hospital, and Cancer Care Northwest for their kindness, love, support and care.

A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, November 2, 2014, 10:30am, at Heritage Chapel.

A celebration of Will’s life to follow at O’Doherty’s Irish Grille, 10208 N. Division (corner of Hawthorne and Division).
