William Arthur Rondeau was born in San Mateo, CA, the youngest child of his doting family; parents Robert and Joan Rondeau, sisters Donna & Nancy and brother, Bob. Bill grew up in San Jose, CA at a time when the Santa Clara Valley was beginning to grow, but was still a very beautiful and peaceful agricultural area. Bill was quick to laugh and loved well. At the age of 17, he met his future wife Carol, 15, when Bill's family moved into the house across the street from Carol's family. Instead of marrying "the girl next door", everyone joked that Bill "married the girl across the street". As everyone knows, Bill & Carol adored each other! On June 4th, 1977, they married at the First United Presbyterian Church of Los Gatos, where all of their family and friends gathered to celebrate their love. In 1981, their daughter Jessica was born and then their son Billy in 1984. These beautiful children and Carol were his life. Bill loved California and the outdoors. He and his family especially enjoyed spending time with extended family and friends at many gatherings: camping trips, weddings, reunions and holiday get-togethers. Bill graduated from San Jose State University in 1985 with his B.A. in biology. He loved his career as a pharmaceutical engineer. The companies that he worked for developed and manufactured many life-sustaining drugs. He was highly regarded and very well liked by friends and colleagues in companies at which he worked in the San Francisco Bay Area. William re-committed his life to Jesus Christ in 2003. He went home to our LORD and savior on February 3, 2015, surrounded in love by Carol, Jessica and Billy.
