William T. Harrington

William Todd “Bill” Harrington, 47, passed away Dec. 20, 2008, of heart failure after a long history of heart disease.

He was born April 20, 1961, on Maui, Hawaii, and adopted by loving parents Dr. Ronald and Elizabeth Harrington just hours after he was born. He was raised in Boulder.

He was a mechanic by nature, and a graduate of Denver Auto Diesel School.

He was married in 1988 in Boulder. He moved his family to Gypsum in 1990 to work for Eagle Gypsum Products as a drywall technician for six years. He resided in New Castle until 1997 when he returned to Boulder to spend more time with his parents.

Bill enjoyed working and driving cars, reading a good book and listening to Creedence Clearwater Revival. He was an avid water skier and the best boat driver.

He remained a fun-loving guy throughout his life.

He is survived by his sons, Ryan, Lee and Nick Harrington; his parents; sisters Heather and Beth; brother Tom; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

According to Bill and his sons’ wishes, a private family memorial service will be held at Rifle Falls, one of his favorite places he shared with his three sons.

In lieu of flowers, contributions or donations should be given to the American Heart Association.
