William John Whitehead

June 12, 1947 — June 26, 2019

William John Whitehead passed away June 26, 2019, in his beloved San Francisco, after a brief illness. Passionate about family and friends, music, art and nature, he was a dear brother, friend, and partner who touched and changed everyone who knew him with his kindness, generosity, and enthusiasm for life. He was a gifted graphic artist who worked for many years to promote the vital missions of many nonprofits in the Bay Area and nationally. We will always remember his warm smile and infectious laughter, and forever treasure the time we were able to spend with him in this life.

Bill had a passion for the arts and public broadcasting. Donations in lieu of flowers may be sent to the San Francisco Symphony or your local PBS station.
