And The Lord said, come on home Bill, you're done on Earth, and with that said, William Gault left and went to see our Savior. Yes, Bill was born on May 6, 1943 and went hopefully to see God on September 17, 2018. He was the lucky son of Matthew and Dorothy Gault, of Hunker, PA. Bill after becoming an adult, moved to North Huntingdon. He was the proud husband of Donna Jean Gault; brother, David (Pam) Gault and Robert (Denise) Gault; mother and father-in-law, Rose and Dale Watson; and brother-in-law, Carl Skooglund. He was preceded in death by his brother, Matthew B. Gault III; sister, Sandra Skooglund; and brother-in-law Gary Watson.
Bill loved life and enjoyed what it gave. He loved sports as a boy, playing football at Greensburg Salem and Hempfield. He also enjoyed sharing his voice with others. Singing in choirs, soloing and being in quartets. After trying college at Allegheny the Navy is where he spent the next few years helping to defend this beautiful country. He traveled quite a bit, stopping in Italy, France, Germany and Africa, just to name a few. He also said hello to Laos, Vietnam and his favorite, Asia. Bill loved to swim, so he joined the Navy and eventually became a Navy Seal. There wasn't a rice paddy, swamp or forest he didn't like. He got to know a few of them personally. The citizens of those country's also got to know Bill and make him feel like one of their own. When he got home, it was like being in a foreign country. Bill was a pretty good cook too, and at one time even owned several restaurants in the Kansas City, Missouri area. After retiring from the hospitality and catering business, Bill moved back home to PA. Here, Bill sold insurance, computers, windows, phones and computer programs for ambulance and funeral homes for a while. He then went on to working in the automotive business selling vehicles for Hamilton Buick before he retired again. Bill was a lucky guy, he had many friends and acquaintances and a large family of nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews whom he loved dearly, and his beloved dog Conner aka Bubber. Yes, Bill loved his life and hopes that he will see you all again. But not soon. There will be no public visitations. Arrangements made by the James W. Shirley Funeral Home, 176 Clay Pike, North Huntingdon, PA. www.shirleyfuneralhome.com
