Obituary for Williard "Bill" Charles Drown

May 27, 1930 - November 15, 2017
Broadview Hts, Ohio | Age 87

Loving Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather


WILLARD "BILL" CHARLES DROWN died peacefully surrounded by family on November 15, 2017 at the age of 87. Beloved husband and best friend of Dolores Drown (nee Darmstadt); loving father of David Drown (Patty), Jeff Drown, Cheryl Ogden (Oggie), Neal Drown (Vicki) and Gary Drown (Jayne); cherished grandfather of Sarah Combs (Tyler), Josh Drown (Rebekah), Neal Drown (Alicia), Kathryn Johnson (Putter), Hannah Drown, David Ogden, Jake Drown (Jenny), Allen Drown and Natalie Drown; great grandfather of Tyler Seelbinder, Kyland Arms and Cooper Johnson; dear son of the late Albert and Berta Drown; brother of Bob Drown, Dan Drown and Carolyn Wilkins. Bill loved his five children and was proud to say he shared his birthday with his daughter Cheryl. He was also an avid fisherman who's love of the outdoors will live on through his four sons and the annual fishing trip to Michigan that he cherished for more than 40 years. Another great joy of his was traveling with his wife and children. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and founder of Progressive Pest Control, a family business now run by his son Gary. Bill taught all who knew him about the importance of family, to treat others kindly and the unmatched satisfaction of landing a fish. Most of all he loved his wife, Dolores Drown, to whom he was married for 67 years. A private memorial service will be held for family at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hospice of Medina County at 5075 Windfall Road, Medina OH 44256 or to the charity of your choice.

All services will be private.
