William Elmer Cavasos passed away at home on October 21, 2015. He was 93 years old.

He was born in Leedey, Oklahoma and was the eldest of seven siblings born to Addiee and Lawrence Adrain Cavasos.

He is also survived by siblings Earl Cavasos, Harvey Cavasos, Verna Mae Shelton, and Mary Griffin. He was preceded in death by his wife Nora Belle, a daughter Leila, two sisters Ethel Mowles and Nina Webb.

The family greatly appreciates the care given by Sutter Home Health Nurses, Dr. Rose and his office staff.
