WILLIAM “BILL” MAXWELL

June 16, 1936 – November 20, 2017

An outdoor memorial for Snoqualmie Ridge resident, Bill Maxwell, will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at Snoqualmie Point Park (exit 27, I-90 east) at 1 pm.

Bill and his wife Judi have four daughters: Colleen Maxwell Veal, Cathedral City, CA; Erin Maxwell Misgen, Snoqualmie, WA; Alison Maxwell Cavaliere, Cle Elum, WA; and Megan Maxwell Bey, Redwood City, CA. They also have six grandchildren and a large extended family.

Bill was Vice-President of Washington Natural Gas Company, ran a construction company for ten years after retirement, and served on many boards including United Way; Totem Girl Scout Council; Pacific Coast Gas Association; the Mountaineers Board of Trustees; the Mountaineers Book Publishing Board and was president of the club. He received many awards for outstanding contributions over the years including the Mountaineers Service Award with Judi in 1992. Bill was considered a visionary in many aspects of his professional career, was a builder, a mentor to many and a global adventurer.

He and Judi explored the world and climbed most of the major peaks in Washington, Oregon and California. Internationally, they summited MT. Kilimanjaro in Africa, MT. Olympus in Greece and explored, trekked, canoed, kayaked, skied and climbed in 43 countries including Mexico, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Antarctica, and the Arctic. They were avid skiers, going to France, Austria and Italy every spring.

Bill’s love of his family, the outdoors and commitment to conservation will define his legacy for years to come.

Memorial gifts can be made to the Mountaineers or the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.
