William “Bill” Charles Daviet

Saturday 12th of August 1961 - Sunday 14th of May 2023

William “Bill” Charles Daviet
William “Bill” Charles Daviet, Jr., 61, is now riding a Harley Davidson down heaven’s streets of gold alongside his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, after passing peacefully from this Earth on May 14, 2023. 

Bill, also formerly known as “Pub Bill” in his college days, is survived by his spouse of nearly 40 years, Lynne Fetter Daviet, whom he met as a freshman in college doing his nightly “pub call” to rouse the fellow members of the dormitory to come out to close down the campus pub. Bill buckled down in his studies, and through his hard work and a brilliant mind, he became a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering.

From this season of life grew and sparked the romance and marriage that resulted in Bill and Lynne’s only earthside daughter, Jacqui. Bill’s daughter, Jacqui, and her husband, Drake, will never forget her dad, his love and dedication, his dry sense of humor, or the way he loved their children with his whole heart. Bill was “Papa” to Emberley (4) and Drake (2), and was thrilled to be expecting another grandson, to be named William Mitchell, due to arrive late July of 2023, as well as future unknown grandbabies, if it is in God’s plan.

Bill is survived also by his brother, John, his sisters, Patty and Jen, and his niece, Kayla, and nephew, Jason, as well as the many beloved in-laws, nieces, and nephews of the Fetter family. In addition to family, Bill is also survived by the many folks who were dear to him whom he knew through his childhood (such as John Montagna), spiritual family (The LeBrons, Allreds, and Bowkers), life, ministry, and career.

In his early adulthood, Bill came to know and choose Jesus Christ as his Savior. Bill was an ordained minister. Jesus was his Messiah, and Bill would want you to know that Jesus is real, the Bible is God’s Living Word, and that God has given all who dwell on this Earth an open invitation to accept salvation through faith in Jesus and acceptance of His death and resurrection as a sacrifice for your sins. The only thing you need to do to accept this invitation is to make a covenant by acknowledging Jesus Christ as your Savior, come humbly to God in faith and repentance, and ask His Holy Spirit to live inside of you.  

For much of his life, Bill provided for his family as a Regional Field Service Manager for several large hospital equipment manufacturers. In his midlife, Bill became a musician, learning to play guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums (Psalm 100:1-5). Throughout his musical life, he was a part of numerous bands, playing and writing both secular and praise and worship music. Other passions of his included ham radio, wood-working with his scroll saw, drawing, photography, shooting target practice, and riding his motorcycle.

In his retirement years, Bill moved to his dream home in the country, downgraded his Harley to a trike, enjoyed leisurely summer days by the pool, and spending every moment he could with his grandchildren. He had recently renewed his ham radio credentials by testing with the Federal Trade Commission, and was honored to have been awarded his late grandfather’s call sign, “W2PUZ."

In the recent months, Bill was in and out of the hospital and a physical rehabilitation facility after battling with Covid, and was diagnosed with advanced cancer one week prior to his passing. 

Upon his arrival in heaven, Bill was reunited with unborn children and many loved ones, including his earthly best friend, Jesus LeBron, and on a stormy night, you might even hear the thunder of a heavenly jam session of them rocking out together again in praise of the Lord. 

Bill sacrificed many years of his life and health to provide for his family, and for that, we are endlessly grateful. He will be remembered as an incredibly sharp-minded, loving, hard-working, passionate, Jesus-loving, creative, loyal, stubborn, silly, dedicated man, who loved Jesus, his family, and living life with his whole heart. While missing him deeply, however, his family are comforted in the knowledge of Paul’s reminder in Philippians 1:21, which says “For me, to live is Christ, to die is gain.” 

As his health declined with age through his later years, Bill achieved the honor of a frequent rider status with the local emergency response crews, who dedicated their time, positive and encouraging attitudes, and resources to keeping him healthy and safe. They had even created a dedicated fire rescue training plan for him, if the need were to arise.

In lieu of flowers, his family requests Memorial Donations as a heartfelt “Thank You” be sent to:

Olympian Springs Volunteer Fire Department 
P.O. Box 92
Olympia, KY 40358

Following his passing, Bill’s family are honoring his expressed wishes and mourning him privately. The family will be holding an informal Celebration of Life in Kentucky on his birthday, August 12, and invite those who loved him to attend. Details will be shared closer to the date.
