William “Bill” Warner Stratton


William, 68, of Sun City, AZ, passed away on Friday, September 27th, 2019. Born in Washington, D.C., Bill spent the majority of his life working in the printing and graphic design career field.

He dabbled with many hobbies over the years, but throughout his life music remained his true passion whether it was performing for a crowd or fiddling in his living room with his dog Sweet Pea.

Bill was preceded in death by his father, Robert Stratton; mother, Bernice Stratton; and sister, Barbara Piefer. He is survived by three siblings: Tom Stratton, Maryon Lagana, and Bob Stratton; two children, Shanon Stratton and Thornton Stratton; and three grandchildren: Larkin Stratton, Darian Stratton, and Reese Stratton.

Best Funeral Services West Valley Chapel of Peoria, AZ, are handling cremation and a private memorial will be held at a later date.
