Obituary of William McCune


    William Winfield "Bill" McCune, son of Dale and Nellie (Hooker) McCune, was born at Sioux City, IA on June 28, 1958.

    Bill was employed with Peterson Sheep and Cattle Company for seven years. In 1987, he began working for Bill Stevenson Construction, operating heavy equipment for nearly 30 years. His work endeavors always centered around being outdoors, and that suited him perfectly. Bill liked fresh air, sunshine and digging in the dirt. He thoroughly enjoyed working with horses of any size or color, and took great pleasure in showing them. Another passion of Bill's was following the Professional Bull Riding Circuit, of which he was an avid fan! He was also a member of Bethany Lutheran Church at Spencer.
