Bill Mehle was born June 3, 1931 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina and passed away on July 13, 2012 in Tucson, Arizona. He graduated from Rocky Mount High School as a three sport athlete and was drafted by the Boston Red Sox Organization in 1949. He played for the Wilson Tabboccoists (Red Sox Farm team). He joined the Navy and played Baseball and Basketball.

He moved to Tucson to try and cure an injured arm, attended and graduated with a Masters in Education from the University of Arizona. He was a successful teacher and coach in Tucson from 1965 to 1988. He will be missed dearly here on earth. Heaven needed an old coach.

He will build a place in heaven for his wife, Sherry; his son, Will (Michelle); his stepdaughters, Kim (Sam), Kris (Bill) and Tari (Arnie); his Stepson, Rick (Claire) and his sister, Anne (Robert). He also left behind beloved grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and countless friends and former students. He was simply a beautiful spirit. We love you dad!
