OGDEN –William Allen Stockdale (Bill), 63, passed away peacefully, surrounded by many family members, on Wednesday, November 12, 2008 at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah after suffering a stroke and complications of Parkinson’s disease.

Bill was born on March 6, 1945 in Logan, Utah to Barbara Grace Jensen and William “R” Stockdale.

Bill graduated from Ben Lomond High School in 1963. He served an LDS mission in the Cumorah Mission, Rochester, New York, where he had the privilege of being in the Hill Cumorah Pageant.

Bill married Barbara Elaine Allred on September 11, 1968 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They have four children.

Bill served in the U.S. Air Force and retired from the Air Force Reserves after twenty years of service.

Bill graduated from Weber State University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Associates degrees in Data Processing and Business Management.

Bill held banking, management and accounting positions with First Security Bank, Bank One, and Flameco Barnes. He was a member of the North Ogden Kiwanis Club for several years and served as president of the local American Institute of Banking.

He was an avid reader, and especially loved studying American history and the Constitution. He was known to enjoy movies and had an ever-expanding coin collection that he was building for his grandchildren.

Above any other role in life, Bill cherished being a grandfather, or “Paca.” Every grandbaby knew Paca as the one who talked to them in a Donald Duck voice and taught them animal sounds. As the children grew, Paca always had new toys for them at the house, and he loved to play with the children.

Bill is survived by his wife, Elaine, and his children: Liesa (Rodger) Corbridge, West Haven; Kathryn (Lance) Capener, Hereford, TX; Jeffery (Marie) Stockdale, Harrisville; and Jason Stockdale, Ogden; eight adoring grandchildren who will always miss Paca; three sisters and two brothers: Virginia (Brent, deceased) Teeples, Mesa, AZ; Ann (Paul) Checketts, Kaysville; Robert (Jana) Stockdale, billings, MT; Barbara Sue (Gary) McDonald, Las Vegas, NV; and Paul (Stephanie) Stockdale, Ogden.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother-in-law.

The family wishes to thank McKay-Dee Hospital’s ICU staff for their skilled care and compassion during his last days.
