William 'Bill' F. Madill

Monday morning March 16, 2020, Bill passed away, following hip replacement complications.

William was born on the family farm near Rosefield, Saskatchewan Canada on April 13, 1936 to Cecelia and Alik Madill. He was the 9th of 13 children. After beginning grade school in Rosefield, Bill immigrated with his family to a farm outside of Silesia Montana in 1946, where he finished grade school. Of the nine in the Edgar High School graduating class of 1955, he was the only boy. Bill joined the US Army in 1958 serving 2 years active duty, including some in France, then 4 years reserve duty. He later worked for Nu-Tread Tires, Yellowstone County Implement (John Deere), Salt Creek Freight-ways, and Sweetheart Bakery.

Bill loved his family very much. He enjoyed the company of his cat Ben, gardening, fishing, and traveling. Bill was an honest, hardworking, intelligent, and mechanically inclined man who could fix almost anything. He was also very proud of his 41 years of sobriety.

Bill had 3 sons with his first wife Linda (Trammel): Bill Jr. (Sandi) Bruce (Teri), Bryan (Gina). He married Judy Kling in September 2000. Her children are Terald (Tiffany) Kling, Pam ( fiancee Greg) Kling, and Darin (friend Joan) Kling.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents Alik & Cecelia, infant sisters Caroline and Jennie, sister and brother-in-laws: Florence and Marlin Dahlberg, Pauline and James 'Jim' Hibscher, and Helen and Roy Hillner, brothers: Alik Madill, Joe Madill, brother-in-laws: Paul Heiser, Bud Beyl and James Ruff.

Bill is survived by his wife, 3 sons and their spouses, 3 sisters Eleanor Ruff, Isabell Beyl and Georgina Heiser, 2 brothers Carl Madill and Cecil (Linda) Madill, 3 step children, 13 grand children, 10 great grand children, and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Memorials may be sent to Stillwater Hospice at 3737 Grand Avenue Billings, MT 59102 or the charity of your choice.
