February 12




Mitchell and Meika



With sadness we announce the passing of Bill Marshall Leffler, age 74. He was born February 12, 1944 in Holdrege, Nebraska to Delbert and Stella Leffler. Bill is survived by his wife of 49 years, Pat, son Mitch (Mindy), daughter Meika(Ross Mallett), brother Bert Leffler (Mel) of Kearney, Nebraska and grandchildren Aidan, Graham and Shea Leffler and Anika and Quinn Mallett and five nieces and nephews. Bill graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University, where he met his wife. After moving to the Seattle area, he became Director of the Respiratory Therapy Program at Tacoma Community College and was there until his retirement. Retiring early, Bill focused full-time on about a thousand disparate and ever-changing interests and hobbies. He cycled across large segments of the US, wrestled with woodworking techniques, read rapaciously, saw foreign sights, perfected pastries, brushed up on the banjo, played ping pong loyally, and generally lived as deeply as one could ever hope to in this world. He even nailed the exit, dying peacefully on April 9, 2018.

While there will be no public memorial, if you knew him, you probably realize how lucky you were. We miss him dearly.
