St. George

On Wednesday, February 15, 2023, William David Armour Jr, loving husband, and father of eight children, returned to his Heavenly Father.  He was 85 years old.

Bill was born on January 13, 1938, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Bud and Dorothy (Ogg) Armour. In 1960 he received his BS degree in Mathematics from Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania where he also met his eternal companion, Nancy Ellen Mason. They were married on August 27, 1960, and moved to Poughkeepsie, New York where Bill started his 25-year career with IBM. Together they raised three sons, Scott, David, and Jon and five daughters Sherry, Debbie, Jenny, Beth, and Rebecca.  

Bill was a lifelong learner. He received his PhD in Computer Science from The University of California at Irvine in 1993 and loved to share his knowledge with others. He was a passionate and dedicated teacher, leading seminary for 13 years and providing wisdom and counsel to his eight children, thirty-seven grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren. Bill had a dry sense of humor and loved to smile and laugh.

Bill was preceded in death by his father Bud, his mother Dorothy, and his daughter Debbie. He is survived by his wife Nancy, his brothers Bob and Jim and his seven other children.
