Son of Thomas R. Quinn and Rose Ellard Quinn. Brother of Mary Quinn Nugent and Roderick Quinn.

Married to Mary Jane Zigrang Quinn. Children born of that union are Michael, Maureen, Patrick and Charlene.

The grandchildren he never knew include Daniel, Caitlin (1971-1995), Megan, Brenna, Sarah, and Maura Quinn as well as Brandon and Cameron Canchola. Brandon is the "spitting image" of his grandfather in the photo to the right.

Bill attended Loyola High School in Los Angeles, CA. He also attended Loyola University (now Loyola/Marymount)and received his M.D. from USC. He was a radiologist, practicing in West Covina, CA.

Bill served in the Army as a medic during the Korean Conflict. That experience would forever change the man he was.

Bill was tragically lost in a home fire. He was 43 years of age at the time of his death.

My father was devoted to his profession and to his patients. He spent many hours volunteering his time and knowledge to the American Cancer Society as a guest speaker. He was a brilliant man who earned straight As all throughout his years of education from Kindergarten throughout medical school.

His passion was the sea where he spent his most joyous hours deep sea fishing on his boat. He had received his first set of marlin poles as a Christmas gift from my mother just two months prior to his passing. He never had a chance to use them.

Dad, your passing was a tremendous loss, not only to your family but to the medical community and the community as a whole. The turnout of hundreds of mourners at your funeral was testiment to how many lives you had touched.
