NORMAN — William A. “Bill” Antrobus Sr. was born March 25, 1938, in Anderson, Ind., to Archie and Evelyn. He passed from this life Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, after a brief, unexpected illness.
Bill transferred from the Anderson General Motors plant to the Oklahoma City General Motors plan in 1979 and retired in 2002, after 40 years of service. Bill and his family made their home for most of those years in the Norman/Noble area.
Bill is survived by his wife, Betty (Slavin) Antrobus, whom he married on May 29, 1965, in Anderson, Ind. Also surviving are sons Bill Jr. of Anderson, Ind., and Khrys of Oklahoma City; daughter, Kym (Chris) Yancey of Altus; four grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom adored him.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents and his only brother, David R. Antrobus.
Bill loved everyone he met and he loved God. He felt God’s presence everywhere. He was a novice photographer and took pictures of anyone who would stand still, especially at family gatherings. He enjoyed his miniature train collection, reading, gardening and landscaping with Betty.
In his true unselfish nature, Bill was an organ donor.
Bill’s loving presence will forever be missed, and he will live in our hearts until we meet again.
A memorial service will be 1 p.m. Saturday at Maguire Baptist Church, 9801 E. Maguire Road in Noble.
