Bill Erwin passed away peacefully from natural causes Tuesday (Dec. 12) in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Bill was a native of Raton. He lived much of his life and practiced law there and in Angel Fire. He is survived by Jackie Erwin, his daughter and son-in-law, Lura and Donny Amparan, his granddaughters, Breanne and Jordan Amparan of Phoenix, as well as his brother and nephew, Ralph and Rees Erwin of Portland, Oregon. Bill lived an adventurous life. He was generous, loving, and kind, and had a wonderfully dry sense of humor. He leaves us all with so many wonderful memories and will be missed greatly. Per his wishes, an informal celebration of life will take place in Yankee Canyon, New Mexico, when it warms up. Information about this will be provided at a later date.
