William Domichel

William Domichel, age 81, died August 26, 1997 in West Valley City, Utah.

Born March 17, 1916 in Murray, Utah, son of Anton and Mary Votivich Domichel.

Every once in awhile there is a person born who doesn't just go through life, but makes an impact in everything he does. Someone who is recognized by his name because of the impact he's made on a person, even if he had only met them once. He was blessed with a strong personality, a strong will, and a booming voice. Because of this he was able to overcome any obstacle in life put before him such as having to do a grown man's full days work on the farm at age 7 and starting his own trucking business at age 14. Bill founded seven businesses and because of his drive and determination, all his businesses did well. Didn't know the words quit, rest or retire. Only around the age of 69 did he take up golf and bowling due to his closest friend and partner in business, Roger Holton. Not surprisingly he also did these things very well. Not because he used the proper club or conventional way to do it, but by doing it his own way.

He only was schooled to the eighth grade, but apparently that was all he needed to succeed and excel in life.

He married his sweetheart, LaVon Ila Jensen, January 3, 1944. She also was a hard worker, who worked along side him and together they raised three children. She preceded him death November 2, 1979. Married Joyce Bertie Riet, July 24, 1989 in Elko, Nevada.

Survived by wife, Joyce; daughter, Mary Dianne (Jim) Johnson; sons, William A. (Jacquelyne) and Gary R. (Deanna) Domichel; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; stepchildren, Susan P. Cummings; Diana E. Wyatt and James D. Cummings.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, 12 noon at McDougal Funeral Home, 4330 South Redwood Road, where friends may call Monday, 6-8 p.m. and Tuesday one hour prior to services. Interment, Murray City Cemetery.
