Obituary for William Arnold Jackson

William Arnold  Jackson

After numerous moves around the country
with his family, Bill settled on Whidbey Island

Bill made his living as a general contractor/custom
builder on Whidbey and in the Seattle area. His
carpentry influences can still be found in many
locations around the island. He was a master
craftsman and a mentor to many who wanted to
learn the trade.

Bill enjoyed skiing, golf, casinos, parties and
travel to visit with his family. Above most anything else,
Bill LOVED to fish! He was a member of "The Fishing Club".
His knowledge of the Puget Sound and his skill and
years of practice netted him quite a haul over the years.

Church in Langley. He was also a member of the Knights
of Columbus. Bill volunteered many hours with them
including working at the Island County Fair and the
Adopt a Highway clean up crew.

in 1991, Helen Jackson in 1999 as well as his brother
