William Herbert Shreves
William Herbert Shreves, 74, passed away October 13, 2020, surrounded by family after a short battle with cancer.
Bill was born to the late Phyllis (Stead) & Raymond Shreves on December 30, 1945. He was a member of one of the best Golf Teams at SHS and continued the family tradition of becoming a Golf Pro. He served in The United States Air Force during the Vietnam War and was a retiree from Union Carbide. Bill loved hunting with his grandsons and attending his grandchildren’s sporting events.
Bill is survived by his daughter Chrissy (David) Orr of Sistersville, sisters Cindy (Tom) Carson of Sistersville, Kim (Wayne) Maxwell of Friendly, Donna (Charles) Higginbotham of Parkersburg and brother Paul “Jr” Shreves of Gladehill, Virginia. Six grandchildren: Lillian Orr, Danny (Ashley) Grimm, Christian Orr, Dylan Grimm, Nathan Orr, and Katie Grimm; two great grand-daughters Aubrianna and Kailynn, and many nieces and nephews.
As Bill was always helping others and giving to others in his life, it was with the same concern that he made the decision to donate his body to the Human Gift Registry at WVU.
A celebration of life will be held with Military Honors on Saturday October 17, 2020 at 2 pm at the Virgil Ash Shelter at Sistersville City Park. Please bring chairs and continue to practice social distancing.
The family would like to thank the compassionate staff at Journey Hospice for their assistance in caring for Bill as he spent his final days with them. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Sistersville Journey Hospice.
