Oct. 21, 1974 — Oct. 7, 2012
Billy was born Oct. 21, 1974, and passed away Oct. 7, 2012, at Marshall Hospital with his family by his side. He was only 37 years old. He lost his battle with a year-long illness. He loved his fiancée Melissa, his daughter Deziree, son Jeremiah, his family and friends, his Harley and his pet Molly.
Bill was preceded in death by his Papa and Gramma Irwin. He is survived by his mother, Lee Vorbrich; his father and step-mom, Duane and Rachel Silveira; his Vava and Vovo Silveira; his sister, Jessica Vorbrich; step-brother, Richard Smith Jr.; aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews; and countless friends.
Everyone loved Billy. He could touch and warm your heart. He also loved a good debate (which he usually won). He always had the best advice. He also loved spending time at the river, riding his Harley and talking about the future and all the things he wanted to do. His Papa described him perfectly: “He’s Bill, and that’s a full-time job!” He will be forever missed and will live on in our hearts.
Services will be held on Monday, Oct. 22, at 2 p.m., at Foothill Community Church in Cameron Park, followed by a potluck at the church. Please come join us as we remember Bill.
