William 'Bill' Murray Story Jr.

January 13, 1933 - July 7, 2016

Bill Story Jr., formerly of Eagle Point, Oregon passed away peacefully Thursday July 7, 2016 at his home in Central Point, Ore. He was born in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin.

Bill had attended Whittier College and obtained his Bachelor Degree. He served in the U.S. Army and National Guard in the mid-1950s, and was awarded the National Defense Service and Good Conduct medals.

He married Carol Fadler in California and fathered his only child, Lynn Carolyn Story in 1959. From there, he opened a plastics injection molding company, Story Plastics Inc. in Burbank, Calif. where he made Frisbees, drip irrigation parts, syrup pitchers, stands, frames, coin holders, ski totes, thermostat covers, and too many other products to name, from 1969 until 2002.

Bill married Judith Anne Rhoades McMillan and took on her three children in January of 1976. They retired to Eagle Point in 1991 where they grew hay, raised farm animals, did lots of entertaining, and generally enjoyed life (except the haying), until Judi’s passing in 2011.

Some of his favorite things were going to the Outback Steak House, listening to Anne Murray songs, and his caregivers, affectionately known as “The Story Girls.” Bill loved his 1989 Lincoln Signature Town Car, music, sending opinions to the Mail Tribune, and playing poker. He will be greatly missed by all.

His is survived by his children, Lynn Carolyn Drewe, Cindy Sue McMillan, Jodi Lynn Lamensdorf, and Michael Thomas McMillan; and his four grandchildren Cameron Story Brown, Austin Parker Brown, Mackenzie Braun Drewe, and Christopher Dean McMillan.
