Biography

William Dean "Bill" Warth, 76, of New London, died Saturday, April 22, 2017 in Mesa, Arizona. He was born December 19, 1940 at the New London family home to Arthur S. and Edna G. Dresser Warth. On June 24, 1962, he married Dayle Nicole Linder at the New London United Methodist Church.
Bill was a 1959 graduate of New London High School and earned his BA from Iowa Wesleyan College in 1963. He worked for Mary Dayle Development Company, Linder Company, taught four years at Harmony Schools and began in 1974 as Assistant Manager of A.Y. McDonald Supply Company in Burlington for 30 years.
After Bill retired, he and Marvin Septer worked together painting, carpentry, plumbing and handyman work for over 10 years during the summers. During that time, they never exchanged cross words over anything. He was generous with his time, helping Marvin and his son on many occasions. Bill was a good friend and coworker and always had a positive attitude all the years Marvin knew him. He will be sorely missed.
He was of the Methodist faith. He and his wife were members of the Gold Wing Touring Association and Mesa Road Runners. He loved motorcycles and all sports, especially the Dallas Cowboys and the Iowa Hawkeyes; he collected knives and guns.
Besides his wife, he is survived by two sons, Troy William (Michelle) Warth of St. James, Missouri and Dale Dustin (Terri) Warth of Sarasota, Florida; three foster sons, Trieu Le, Hoat Nguyen and Phi Nguyen; grandchildren, Michaela, Chalea, Tabitha, Jarret, Trey, Dakota, Alexander and Andrew; three great grandchildren, Lillie, Logan and Mckenzie; one brother, James A.

I met Bill Warth at Mesa Regal RV Resort in 2005 playing Ping Pong. We played together weekly during the winter seasons. He and I were doubles partners in the CalAm Ping Pong tournament. We were successful in winning the doubles event. Bill was a wonderful person and all enjoyed his pleasant personality. He is missed.
