Remembering Board Member Bill Bodnar

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our Board Member, Bill Bodnar, unexpectedly passed away on January 12, 2020.

Bill, a retired Vice President at Tesoro, served on the Board most recently since 2017 but has been a supporter and past board member for many years. He was an avid supporter of our organization, and regularly attended advocacy events, galas, and Refinery Runs. He was a very kind and generous man and will truly be missed.

On a personal note, I’d like to say it was a pleasure to get to know Bill albeit for a short while. Bill was on the selection committee that ultimately offered me this opportunity. I was struck by Bill’s enthusiasm for the organization and knowing that he had volunteered to be the next Board Chair, I was looking forward to working with him. He will be greatly missed.
