William  Enoch

William Forrest Enoch,

April 30, 1954 – February 7, 2014

William (Bill) was born in Warren, Ohio on April 30, 1954.  He passed away on Friday, February 7, 2014 at the age of 59 years in Houston, Texas from lung cancer, surrounded by his loving family. 

Bill was born in Ohio and moved to Houston, TX in 1982.  He began his career working as a roofer and construction worker and then he completed Computer school and began working for Arthur Anderson until they went out of business.  He then started his own construction company for about four years and then went on to manage a condominium complex.  Bill always wanted to get his CDL license which he decided to do in 2011. After months of training, he finally acquired his CDL license and was a truck driver for a year until he was diagnosed with his first cancer. After fighting the first cancer, he went on to work for Reliable Sources as an inspector for the last seven months.

Bill was married to Linda for thirty-one years and they have a wonderful son, Will Enoch, whom he adored with all his heart.  Will was the apple of his Father’s eye since the moment Bill laid eyes on him.

Bill was diagnosed with mouth cancer in 2012.  He fought and was winning his battle when cancer struck him again, this time it was lung cancer at stage 4. 

Bill was a man of noble character, integrity, humble and hardworking.  He was always ready to help if you needed a fence built, help with the groceries or a branch cut from your roof.  All you had to do was call and he was always ready to help.

Bill is preceded in death by father, Phillip A. Enoch; brother, Roger Enoch; brother in law, Landon Michael Austin; nephews, James Loux and Matthew Gomez; mother in law, Eva Cruz, and his dear cousin Vivion Garcia. 

Bill is survived by wife, Linda Enoch; son, William C.
