Bill Gene Hulsey Bill, a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother-in-law and friend passed away Saturday, August 8, 2015. Bill gallantly battled the effects from a stroke for nine months. He was loved so much and he will be greatly missed. Born January 29, 1937 in Cromwell, Oklahoma, Bill was the youngest of 10 children and he had a warm and loving childhood. Bill spent his early years in Tulsa and Bartlesville, Oklahoma. His two wonderful, beloved sons were born in Cincinnati, Ohio: Brett Robert in July 1967 (deceased) and Brian Dean in January 1969. Bill moved to Sacramento, California in 1969 after accepting a job with Atlas Mechanical, a large and successful heating, air conditioning, and sheet metal company where he became a Vice President. Bill opened his own company, Hulsey Mechanical, in 1987 and was very proud of his work and success all over California, Nevada, and Utah installing computer rooms in law enforcement agencies for the NEC Finger-printing System. He then went into general construction in the Cameron Park and Sacramento areas. Bill will be forever remembered and is survived by his devoted wife of 31 years, Joy; his son, Brian and his wife, Rebecca; his grandsons, Dakota Michael and Jacob Daniel. Bill is also survived by two sisters-in-law and many nephews, nieces, and friends in California and Oklahoma. Bill's oldest son, Brett Robert was killed in a motorcycle accident in March, 2014. Bill was devastated by the loss of his son. A separate Celebration of Life will take place in Oklahoma later this year where most of his families reside. Bill was a respected and well liked member of the Cameron Park Community and was a long time member of the Cameron Park Country Club where he loved playing rounds of golf with his good friends and neighbors. Bill was also a valued member of the Elks Organization in Sacramento and most recently, here in Shingle Springs. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be sent to the Placerville Elks #1712 at 3821 Quest Court, Shingle Springs, CA 95682 for the "Foster Children's Christmas Fund".
