Birth: Mar. 7, 1956
Coos Bay
Coos County
Oregon, USA
Death: Mar. 11, 2012

SALEM-Bill was born in Coos Bay, OR; the first child of William M. Tharp, Sr. and Shirley Tharp, and first grandchild of Thomas and Sadie Tharp of Dallas, OR. Bill's life was troubled and turbulent almost from its beginning, but during the last nine years he was able to settle down and live what he described as the happiest, best life he had ever had with his friend Terry and his two dogs Buster and Rosie.

Bill fought cancer for the past three years; in April it was found to have spread to his brain, and the end came quickly. We wish to express our thanks to the staff at Salem Rehabilitation Center for their care of Bill and concern for his family members during his last days. Bill was preceded in death by his grandparents and his sister Dianna. He is survived by his father, William M. Tharp, Sr.; his son Joshua (Andrea); his aunt, Mary Phillips; his friend Terry, and his dogs Buster and Rosie; his sister Cindy; and several half-siblings.

Interment will be at the Masonic Cemetery in McMinnville, alongside his grandparents, with family members in attendance.
