William Lewis McRory, Jr., 70

William “Bill” was born March 14, 1947, in Pittsburgh, Pa., to William and Mary McRory, and moved to Post Falls, Idaho, in 1979 from California. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, John McRory of Newman Lake, Wash.

Bill served in the U.S. Navy and was a Vietnam veteran. He worked in the construction industry as a subcontractor. He had many interests including woodworking and fishing, but what gave him the most pleasure was spending time with his family. In younger years he enjoyed motorcycle racing in the California desert, backpacking and bow hunting. He was a loyal Pittsburgh Steelers fan and loved watching football with his children and grandchildren. He also enjoyed golfing.

Bill was called to rest Dec. 28, 2017, after complications from a long battle with cancer. He is survived by his four children, Stephanie Lines of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Christopher Richey of Coeur d’Alene; Heather Johnson of Post Falls and Mia McRory of Post Falls. He was blessed with 21 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Bill is also survived by brothers, Mac McRory of San Diego, Calif., Jim McRory of Hayden, Idaho, Bob McRory of Lincoln, Neb and David McRory of Perry, Utah; and sisters, Kathleen Bullington of Palm Desert, Calif., Kris Murphy of Hayden and Liz Homes of Chattaroy, Wash.

Bill was an incredible father, brother, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a kind and gentle soul who was taken too soon. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
