William Henry Striegel, 90 years old, of Pollock Pines, CA, passed away peacefully at his home on August 3, 2018. William was born In San Francisco, CA on December 30, 1927, to his parents Harry and Marie Striegel. After Bill graduated from Chico State University, he began working at Pfeiffer Electric Company in San Jose before joining the U.S. Air Force in July of 1948, where he was stationed at Mather Air Force Base. After his time in the Air Force, Bill settled down to family life in Campbell, CA, where he worked for Lockheed Missiles and Space Company as an engineer. Bill was also an avid ham radio operator, better known as WA6QAK, for most of his life. In his later years, he enjoyed traveling, both locally and abroad, playing bridge, tennis, country drives to Almaden Lane, cooking, and being with his extended family. Bill had quite a green thumb, and his home in Pollock Pines reflected his gardening talents. Bill is survived by his five children, John Striegel of San Carlos, CA, Kathleen Pence of Roseville, CA, Mary Jane Striegel of Portola, CA, Patricia Pascoe of Gig Harbor, WA, and William Striegel Jr. of Rancho Cordova, CA; two sisters, Patricia Huber of Discovery Bay, CA, and Anita Harting of San Jose, CA; three grandchildren, Mike Pence of Roseville, CA, Lisa Gregory of Placerville, CA, and Jennifer Bugarini of Newark, CA; and five great grandsons.
