Congratulations, Everyone!


Sadly, we note the passing of William "Bill" Hartin, who died peacefully in his sleep on May 24th at age 85.  Bill was well-known and well-loved by all who knew him in our bridge community.  He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and married his wife, Beverly, 52 years ago.  Together they raised four sons and a daughter in La Cañada Flintridge, California, before moving full-time to Rancho Mirage in 2001 after his long and successful career as a pharmaceutical executive.  A devoted husband and father, Bill’s greatest joy was his family. He had an affinity to inspire younger family members (or those around him) and tell unforgettable stories.  Bill loved any reason to celebrate.  A party with Bill was always legendary and not to be missed. His zest for adventure encouraged all generations to live life to the fullest. His laughter and fun-loving spirit will be deeply missed by all who knew him.  He is survived by Beverly, their five children and three grandchildren, and his brother, Bob.  Commemorations can be made to the Coachella Valley Bridge Foundation in Palm Desert, or to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T).
