Obituary for William Boltz

William Boltz
Our Hero, Our Angel

Bill was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, that has been taken by the angels on Thursday, February 8th, 2018.

Bill was born in Norman, OK and was raised by his Dad with his 2 brothers and 1 sister, who lived with their uncle who had 9 children of his own which made 13 children total.

Sunday dinner was always chicken. The last one served always received the neck. Bill was the youngest child of the 13 and ended up with the neck for years. This became a family joke whenever chicken was served as he was quick to grab the leg.

AEC William Boltz of VAQ-129 was presented the Vietnamese Air Gallantry Cross with bronze wings recently by Viking skipper Cdr. R. E. Fraser. Chief Boltz flew 172 sorties from the U.S.S. Shangri-La in in S. E. Asia, from April to November 1970. He was VAQ-129’s Leading Chief.

As requested there will be no service at this time, but a spring memorial will be held at a later date. Bill had a distinguished military career and a long career in the Aerospace industry.

Bill was preceded in death by his son William, Edward, Billy Jr., and Brother Chuck.

He was survived by his loving wife Vera (Vicky), of 46 years and daughters Cathy and Debbie.

Bill will be forever missed by his family, friends and his golfing buddies.
