Bill Choisser, 69, passed away in his sleep at 2:16 a.m. Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at California Pacific Medical Center, Pacific campus, following a long period of medical problems due to the autoimmune muscle disease called polymyositis.

They moved to San Francisco in 1979, and Bill was hired as an electric design engineer at Glumac and Associates in the city. He later worked at Toft Wolff Farrow, also in San Francisco. His career spanned 25 years before he retired in 2004.
