William (Bill) Marcusen was born May 23, 1932, in Vernal Utah to George Marcusen and Josephine Gomez Marcusen. Bill has now gone to be with Pat, after a period of loss and grieving. Bill has lived a full life that took him from Eastern Utah and Western Colorado to the Salt Lake Area. He enlisted in the Army and fought on the battlefields of Korea where he earned his Combat Infantry Badge and a Bronze Star.
After his return, he married his beloved Patti Anne, on September 11, 1958, in Salt Lake City, Utah and were together for almost 60 years. He worked hard his whole life to provide a great life for Patti and his son Jim. The last year has been very difficult for him and we can take solace in the fact that he is with his beloved Patti Anne.
He is survived by son Jim Marcusen (Pam), Grandson Weston Marcusen (KJ), Granddaughter Patti Riding (Victor), 2 great grandchildren Marcus and Adrienne. His brothers George and Johnny, sisters Joanne and Virginia. He was preceded in death by his wife Patricia Marcusen, Father George Marcusen, Mother Josephine Gomez, Brother Jimmy and Sister Bonnie. The family would like to thank the Salt Lake Police and Paramedics the University of Utah Hospital and CNS hospice for the help care that was provided during this difficult time.
A viewing will be held in Bill’s honor on Monday November 15, 2021, from 6:30-8:00 pm at Larkin Mortuary located at 260 E South Temple in Salt Lake City Utah. A Graveside Service will be held at Salt Lake City Cemetery on Tuesday November 16, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. where military honors will be given.
Jimmy, Pam and Grand children,
We are so sorry for your loss.
Dad has shared many stories of growing up in the avenues, playing in the foothills and hiking up City Creek Canyon with his brothers. I hope your memories of Uncle Willey will comfort you today and always.
You are in our thoughts.
Sincerely, Mark Marcusen
