Waxahachie resident William “Bill” Keith Engel, age 65, passed away Monday, Feb. 1, 2016 at his home after an extended illness. He was the husband of Janey Engel and they shared 21 years of marriage together.

Bill graduated from North Scott High School in Iowa, Class of ’69, and went on to work with Austin Construction where he retired as a Supervisor after 20-plus years. He was a devoted brother to eight siblings and will fondly be remembered as the jokester of the bunch who always wanted everyone to smile and have a good time.
