Obituary

Bill was born in Seattle, Washington to William Michael O’Brien and Emma Burton O’Brien. Bill graduated from Seattle University and lived his entire adult life in Monterey/Salinas, California area. He owned Coastal Mailing & Printing in Salinas until his retirement. Bill served as a Salinas City Council Member in the 1970s and 80s.
Bill is survived by his loving wife Catherine Lee O’Brien. He was extremely proud of his two sons, Michael O’Brien (Julie) and Matthew O’Brien (Cara) and seven grandchildren. Bill is also survived by his siblings, Diana Bradley (Fred), Kathy Gould (Ed), and Terrance O’Brien (Catherine) in addition to five nieces and two nephews.
Two of Bill’s favorite interests were Scuba Diving and participating in car rallies with the PBSCC and PCA Car Clubs. Repairing and restoring cars and fixing anything from small appliances to campers were among his many hobbies. Yet, his most enjoyable activities were traveling with his wife Cathy, and spending time with his sons and grandchildren. Bill’s humor, good nature and zest for travel touched all those around him. He loved to entertain family and friends with his many compelling stories and a flair for humorous interpretation. Bills epic journey ended abruptly leaving those of us behind with a vacancy in our hearts yet many memories that make us smile.
