William Alan Harding Jr.
September 30, 1967 – May 27, 2021
William "Bill" Harding Jr. was born on September 30, 1967 to William Harding and Terry Norton Harding Craigie in Omaha, Nebraska. Bill passed on May 27, 2021 at Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat Springs at the age of 53. Bill spent his childhood in Wyoming and moved to Colorado to work in the oilfield industry for over 30 years. He had most recently worked as a Motor Man for Ensign Drilling. Bill was compassionate about kids being involved in 4-H and FFA, often only taking days off from work during the county fair. He loved camping and panning for gold and was fortunate to go to Arizona this past spring to pan for gold (darn it, he did not strike it rich). Bill was known for his generosity in helping others, from branding calves to helping those in need of firewood. Bill is survived by his wife Sonda Harding, his daughters Sydnie Harding, Adrienne (Chad) Kohn, and April (Kevin) Soos, two grandchildren Knox Kohn and Sinna Soos, his parents Scott and Terry Craigie, brother Lynn Harding, nephew Wyatt Harding, nieces Morgan Harding, and Kayden Grinolds. Bill will also forever be remembered by his numerous dear friends. He was preceded in death by his father William Harding. Bill's outlook on life can be summed up to his frequent sayings, "I am Okay," and "We got this".
