Willard Leith

Willard "Bill" Leith, 54, of New Rockford, ND, passed away Monday, March 12, 2018, at CHI St. Alexius Health-Carrington, Carrington, ND.

  Bill was born Dec. 19, 1963, in Grand Rapids, MN, to Willard and Garnet Leith. In 1983, he moved to North Dakota where he met his wife, Dawna. They were married March 29, 1986. Together they had three sons, Garrick, Casey and Tom, and his first grandchild is expected in July. He attended Montana State University and earned a BS in biology and an MA in education. Bill worked at Edutech for the last eight years as a technology trainer for K-12 teachers. He loved working with all the schools and especially the times he was able to be in the classrooms with students. 

Bill loved reading, playing computer games, watching old movies and westerns. He especially loved animals and doted on his family pets. Bill loved playing outside with them and taking them for walks. He always made sure they had plenty of special treats. Last year Bill made a trip out to the Pacific Ocean with his sons; a trip that was undoubtedly his favorite for the time they spent together.

Bill was a wonderful husband and father and he will be greatly missed. 

Bill is survived by his wife of 32 years, Dawna Leith, New Rockford; three sons, Garrick, Casey (Mary) and Tom; seven sisters; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Willard and Garnet Leith and sister Fern Leith.

Visitation will be Saturday, March 17, 2018, 2 to 3 p.m., followed by the funeral at 3 p.m., all in Evans Funeral Home, New Rockford, ND.
