Billy G. Worle, 84, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2019, of natural causes.

In December 1958, Billy married the love of his life, Laura Mae “Laurie” Sarbacher in Grangeville. Billy spent the next several years working in the woods and logging and running skidders. In 1972, Billy and Laurie moved their family to Superior, Mont. Billy managed the Idaho Cedar Sale Mill in Superior until 1977. He then went to work for Diamond Match as a foreman, becoming the Maintenance Supervisor until the Mill closed in 1994.
After retirement in 1997, Billy loved to hunt, fish and go camping with family and friends. He was an avid reader and would rather have his nose in a book than help with yard work.
