William Turner “Billy” “Bill” Hague of Englewood, Fla., passed Thursday, July 31, 2014.
He was best known as “Billy” or “Bill” to those who knew and loved him.
Bill was a 24-7 golfer to those who knew him best, belonging to the Rotonda Country Club. He made friends on and off the golf course, never missing a chance to talk to you about his game. His father, George T. Hague, was on the first USA rowing team for the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany, along with Jesse Owen, who made the world record in running. Bill was handed the gift of golf and perfected it through the years. He would always say, “Live life like there is no tomorrow,” and he did just that.
He leaves behind his wife, Kathleen Ann; his sons, Adam (Mary) Lemonde, oldest son, David Charles Lemonde and Billy (Michelle) Hague; brother-in-law, Richard P. (Lynn) Duffy; niece and nephew, Martha and Richard Duffy; mother, Merial Duffy; 6-month-old granddaughter, Ella; and soon-to-be grandson, Jackson David Lemonde.
There will be a Life Party for Billy from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014, at the Rotonda Country Club (Hills). Donations to the Suncoast Human Society are requested, in lieu of flowers; Bill was all about his two beagles and basset hounds, which were rescue animals.
