Remembering Bill Ogle

Spokane lost one of its greatest citizens recently. Bill Ogle will be remembered as a man of integrity, a loyal and compassionate friend and a principled businessman. He was so kind to me as a young person starting out in business in Spokane.

Bill did so much for so many behind the scenes. I witnessed his strength of character and his steadfast devotion to business associates and friends who were in need of his help. Bill was not one to seek the limelight, but in his own quiet way he made a big difference in our community.

He was one of the “Greatest Generation” in every sense. Bill was an outstanding human being and a man of faith in Christ who truly “walked the talk.” I will miss him.
