William (Bill) E Best, 67, of Tovey, IL, passed away peacefully Tuesday, June 26, 2018, at St. John’s Hospital, while surrounded by his family.

He was born December 17, 1950, in Palatine, IL, the son of Henry E Best and Rosalie (Hardt) Best. He is preceded in death by his parents. Bill was a conductor/brakeman for the Santa Fe Railroad for 19 years.  He is survived by his 3 children, William (Bill) Jr., April (husband Cary), and James (wife Jodee), 6 grandchildren, Brady, Savannah, Taylor, Cole, Brett, and Chase, siblings Carol, Pat, Bob, and Gary as well as many other dearly loved family members.  

Bill loved fishing and being outdoors and fiercely loved his 3 cats, Precious, Funnyface and Knucklehead.  He also enjoyed watching endless hours of T.V. and was the best joke teller around! Bill was a good man with a huge heart and will be missed dearly. A small celebration of life will be held for family and friends at a later date.
