Bill's Senior pic in color and his 11th grade in b&w
Sadly, we share the loss of a BHS Alumni - Bill Tideback, brother of classmate Mike Tideback '67. I remember Bill as a friendly and fun guy in school. May the Lord comfort and bless his family and friends during this time of loss. Thank you Alan and Cathy for the notice.
From Cathy Nicholls Coyle:
How sad. We lost another BHS alumni. I scanned Bill's 11th grade photo and Mike's 12th grade photo so you can post them on your blog.
From Alan Landros:
William "Bill" Tideback passed away on Sunday, April 13, 2008, just short of his 58th birthday. Bill had not felt really well since this past Christmastime, but didn't know what was wrong. Last Tuesday, April 8, he had become so ill that his daughter, Alison, rushed him to the hospital. It was determined that he had an intestinal infection, probably for sometime, and by this time he also had pneumonia in both lungs. Last Wednesday morning Bill was placed on a ventilator and put into a drug induced coma to try and save his life. He remained in the coma until his death on Sunday.
Bill Tideback was born May 2, 1950 in Iowa. He was in the Burbank High Class of 1968. He was very successful throughout his business career, and had retired early within the last two years.
Bill is survived by his daughter, Alison, now 30; his son-in-law, Bobby Castaneda; his 10 month old grandson, Joshua; his 81 year old mother, Fran; his brother, Mike Tideback, (BHS '67); and his former wife, Joyce Starleaf.
After cremation Bill's cremated remains will be interred in the Memorial Garden at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
A Memorial Service honoring Bill will be this coming Sunday, April 20, at 2:00 P.M. at Salem Lutheran Church, (Joyce's church), in Glendale. Salem Lutheran is at the corner of north Brand Blvd. and Stocker St. in Glendale.
