William “Bill” Bagley fell asleep in death at Fort Bayard Medical Center on Saturday, January 20, 2024.
Bill was born May of 1938 in Corona, NM to William and Alice Day Bagley. He served in the Air Force from 1956 to 1960 in Okinawa as a jet plane mechanic. He worked for James Hamilton Construction on highway construction for about ten years in Arizona and in the Silver City area; then for Phelps-Dodge from 1973 to 1999 as a truck driver until his medical retirement. He was a 24-year cancer survivor.
He enjoyed his grandchildren, gardening, growing tomatoes and beautiful irises and taking care of his yard. He was a kind, gentle, softspoken man, a caring, generous father, grandfather and brother. He will be missed by his loved ones.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 46 years, Dorothy Bagley (2009) and his daughter, Cynthia Bagley (2006).
He is survived by his daughter, Deborah Telles of Silver City; son, William Edward Bagley (Yolanda) of Clifton, AZ; four granddaughters, Stephanie, Celina, and Kimberly Telles, all of Silver City, Samantha Bagley, one grandson, William Gordon Bagley; one great granddaughter, Sierra Bagley Bates, all of Mesa, AZ. He is also survived by two brothers, Robert Eddie Bagley (Sandy) of Hanover, NM and John Marshall Bagley of Anchorage, AK.
Cremation has been entrusted to the care of Baca’s Funeral Chapels. A private inurnment will take place at Fort Bayard National Cemetery where Bill will be laid to rest alongside his loving wife, Dorothy. A Memorial Service will follow at a later date.
We look forward to the time when God promises a resurrection for all those asleep in death to a better life on Paradise earth with no more sickness, pain, old age or death.
