William Chirash


Bill's life exemplified the true meaning of giving - proudly serving his country, devoting himself to God and his church, applying his vast knowledge and innovative spirit to his work and, above all, caring for his beloved family both here and abroad.

His kind and generous spirit was shared openly and humbly.  His love of music led him to the love of his life, Doris.  Bill and Doris always enjoyed opening their home to entertain family and friends through holidays, birthdays, and their infamous choir parties.  The beautiful family they built together brought Bill his greatest joy.  He will be forever loved and remembered for his devotion to his family and his inspirational servitude.
