William O’Neill, age 98, passed away on November 16, 2023.  After serving 25 years in the U.S. Air Force, he retired as a Lt. Colonel in November 1968.  As a civilian, he flew as a corporate pilot for a few years.  He later worked for Jefferson County as the County Zoning Administrator until retirement in 1987.

Bill loved life, especially the outdoors.  He hunted, fished, snow and water skied, hiked, climbed 14’ers and was a voracious reader of military history and of the experiences of other members of the military.

He also loved his country. He supported many endeavors which worked to ensure the freedom of this country and contributed to a number of charities in support of former military members.  Contributions in his memory may be made to the Mountain States Legal Foundation, Judicial Watch, Wounded Warriors, or Tunnels to Towers.
