Obituary

Willard "Bill" D. McCrady passed away peacefully at his home in Duluth on December 13, 2018.
Bill was born September 21, 1940, to Iva (Daigle) and Willard M. McCrady in Bemidji, Minnesota. Bill worked at Udac for many years before retiring and made many friends there. Bill found his home with Innovative Living (later DRCC), where he met his house-mates with whom he lived for over 20 years.
Bill loved talking to people and getting to know them. He enjoyed comic books, sports, music, but most of all his "stories." Bill loved his sister, whom he spoke to and visited with often. Two of Bill's proudest moments included winning a gold medal in the Special Olympics and attending the Buddy Holly concert in Duluth.
Bill was one of a kind and made a lasting impression on all who knew him. His wonderful spirit and unforgettable laugh will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
He is survived by his sister, Mary Jo (John) Yachwak of Hibbing; his niece, Ann Yachwak (Peter Beatrice) of Chicago; and many friends.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents.
