William "Bill" Medley

March 20, 1959 — September 26, 2022

William Russell “Bill” Medley, 63, North Manchester, Indiana, joined his daughter Heather Ann Medley in Heaven on September 26, 2022. The son of Russell and Martha (Williams) Medley, Bill was born on March 20, 1959, in Columbia City, Indiana.

After graduating from Columbia High School High School in 1977, Bill joined the United States Navy. Following his service to his country, he began working for DePuy in November of 1980. He worked as a distribution clerk and retired in August of 2012 after thirty-two years of service. Bill was also a member of the United Steelworkers Union for many years.

Bill’s life changed forever on March 24, 1985, when he went on a blind date with Donna McKenzie. The first time Bill saw Donna, he told her he was going to marry her, and six months later he made good on that promise on September 28, 1985. Bill was a devoted, loving, honest husband and father who had a big heart for those he loved and would do anything for them. He was a silent force who was forever steadfast in both his faith and politics.
