William Charles DeLoatche, 73, passed away on July 28, 2016.
He was born in Portsmouth, Va., and was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Jean DeLoatche, and his sister, Cynthia.
Bill was educated at Virginia Tech University and Old Dominion University and was an avid fan of both schools’ sports programs. He owned his own medical management firm for 25 years and retired as an associate at Cherry Beckart LLP. He was a longtime member of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, where he served as past junior and senior warden and as treasurer.
Bill was a strong man with a fierce love of family. He enjoyed socializing in any setting, never meeting a stranger. He loved traveling, the Redskins, singing classic rock, downing a good pizza, and a robust political discussion.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Lois; sons, Chuck (Elizabeth) and Jonathan (Stephanie); and grandchildren, Charlie, Cole, Lauren, Zachary and Tyler.
