It is with great sadness that the family of William Richard Carrington, known as ‘Bill’, announces his passing in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Bill was born in Oxnard, Calif., and resided in Ventura, Calif., where he invested much of his time in the Seventh Day Adventist church spreading God’s message until moving to Lake Isabella in 1984 where he became a valued member of the small community. He lived an adventurous life and embodied the motto “work hard, play harder.” His integrity, hard work, and generosity have touched so many people throughout his life. He loved to travel collecting great friends from the Bahamas, Mexico, Midway Island, and beyond.
He was proceeded in death by his wife Kathy and his parents. He is survived by his sister Wilma Dulla; his children Heidi (Keith) Hamstreet, Timothy Carrington; his grandchildren Nicole (Nick) Feliciano, Kailee (Derrick) Deasy, Cody Green, Jacque Carrington, Faith, and Jade Hamstreet, Grayson Day; and great-grandchildren Madelyn and Jackson Deasy.
Services will be held March 21, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Stockdale Moose Lodge, 905 Stine Rd. Bakersfield, Calif. Tropical attire requested.
