William Kenneth Neumann

| July 4, 2024 12:00 AM

William (Brother Bill) Kenneth Neumann joined his brother, Randy, May 25, 2024. He was living in Cebu, Philippines, and had retired last fall from being a truck driver for many years.

He worked for Alaska Airlines, a nursery in Beaverton, Ore., and various trucking companies over the years. He passed from a heart attack, and we are waiting for his remains to be returned to us. He had a very strong work ethic and was proud of his truck-driving career which took him all over the United States.

He was born Aug. 5, 1955, in St. Ignatius to Kenneth and Rosie Neumann and is survived by brother Gary Neumann, Polson, sister Elaine Harrison, Finley Point, and brother Dean Neumann, Anchorage, Alaska. He was a proud member of the CS&KT Tribe.

He was uncle to Blaine Neumann, Chelsea Martin, Jenna Ness Neumann and Wesley Oscar Neumann and many great nieces and nephews.

We will have a Celebration of Life for Randy, friend Max Hughes and Bill on Aug. 4 at the Smoke House on Finley Point. Stay tuned for more details of the celebration. We will miss Brother Bill as he left us way to soon.

 “To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.” – Clara Ortega

You deserve a well-needed rest Brother Bill and will always be in our hearts and memories.
