WALNUT — William K. Dumney died Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.
Bill was born in Lone Tree, Ind., on April 17, 1938, the son of William and Letha Dumney. He married his wife, Elin, in Orland Park, Ill., in 1962. She survives, as does his son, Matt.
Even though Bill worked as a journeyman mechanic for large freight companies and the Manlius/Bureau Valley school district, he considered his most important job to be farming. He was truly a steward of the land and loved his farm which he and his wife bought in 1975.
Bill is also survived by his daughter-in-law, Barbie; his three grandchildren, Amanda, Matthew W. and Derek; and his mother and sister.
Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Garland Funeral Home in Walnut with the funeral service at 7 p.m. Burial will be private.
