November 7, 1958 – October 12, 2019
William “Bill” F. Osborn II, 60, of Bryan, passed away on Saturday, October 12, 2019. Bill was born in Albuquerque, NM on November 7, 1958 to his parents, William and Gardner Osborn. He graduated from Stephen F Austin State University in Dec 1988 with a BS in Computer Science. Bill worked for Bryan ISD in Information Technology and then went on to Texas A&M Division of Finance.
After his retirement in 2007, Bill began providing tractor services and wildlife management services to local ranchers and hunters. Bill came to realize and joked with others that his John Deere (tractor) was his therapist. He was active in the community and donated his time and services to both Girl Scouts and Habitat for Humanity.
Bill enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and became the “Best dang G-Paw” you could ask for.
Bill will be sorely missed by all, from his caring acts, to his outrageous humor and stories which were to be believed at your discretion.
He is survived by Connie Hooks; his children, Thomas Osborn, Chester and Melanie Rekieta, Traci and Jeffrey Trant, Logan and Angy Hooks, and Kaitlyn Hooks; grandchildren, Isabella Christine and Paxton Luke-Michael Rekieta, Lillee Rae, Luke Randall, and Liam Rekieta Trant; sisters and their spouses, Maury and Tom Meyer, Cindy and Dale Parker, Chris and Dewayne Travelstead, Gardner and Larry Carlisle; nieces and nephews, Adam Parker, Alex and Hunter Travelstead, Kyle and Katy Carlisle; and a host of extended loving family members and friends.
Memorial donations may be made to the Food Pantry, the BCS Prenatal Clinic, or a charity of your choice.
Family and friends are invited to gather in celebration of Bill’s life from 5 to 7 PM Friday, October 18th at Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers, 3001 S. College Ave., Bryan, TX 77801.
