Bill Shipley
Bill was born in Chico on July 24, 1936, to Albert and Zelma Shipley. After graduating from high school, he spent four years in the U.S. Air Force. In 1954, he married his high school sweetheart, Ruby Polk. He recently retired from Lockheed Martin after more than 27 years of service.
Bill was always so proud of his children and grandchildren and loved teasing and joking around with family and friends. He was truly one of the good guys and will be greatly missed.
Survivors: Loving wife of 58 years, Ruby Polk Shipley; children, Rick Shipley and wife, Teresa, Ron Shipley and wife, Nancy, and Traci Shipley; brothers, John and James Queen; sister, Lee Daniels; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
