PACG mourns the sudden death of our Environmental Forum leader Bill Sherwood. Bill succumbed to a heart attack on January 14th while on travel in Florida. Bill was a retired educator, a former alderman of Davenport, Iowa, and a current member of the school board in Davenport. We will remember Bill as a friend and colleague, a tireless advocate for public education, and a protector of the environment and the downtrodden. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.
A celebration of life service will be held this Thursday, January 22nd at 6:00 PM at the Halligan-McCabe-DeVries Funeral Home in downtown Davenport. The visitation will begin at 3:00 PM.
