Billy "Bill" Gene Precise

November 16, 1932 ~ February 17, 2021 (age 88)


Billy (Bill) Gene Precise was born in Marshall, Texas to Marvin E. Precise and Willella King Precise. He had one sibling, Marvin Precise Jr. He married the love of his life, Margaret (Marge) Catherine Dennis on July 10, 1959.

At a very young age, Bill gave his life to Jesus. In his teenage years, he felt the call from his Lord to travel with an evangelistic team, singing in a trio and playing the upright bass and electric bass guitar. While traveling, he took a correspondence course to finish school.

Later, Bill worked for car dealerships in the accounting department. He was offered a job as a salesman for Reynolds & Reynolds Company. He later became the regional sales manager in San Francisco, California, then in Dallas, Texas until he retired in 1987. 

After retirement, Bill and Marge sold their home, stored their furniture and traveled full time in their motor-coach, all across the US. After three and a half years of travel, they purchased a home in Arizona and spent winters there, and summers in Breckenridge, Colorado in their chalet-2nd home.

In 2013 Bill and Marge sold both homes and moved to Denver to be close to their daughter and family.

Bill enjoyed motorcycling, both dirt biking and road, hiking, bicycling and tennis.God came first in his life, then family. He loved spending time and traveling with Marge and his family, as well as spending fun times hanging, eating and laughing with all of the family and many treasured friends throughout the years. His greatest desire was to hear his Heavenly Father say "Welcome home, my good and faithful servant."

Bill is survived by his wife, Marge (Dennis) Precise, daughter Pamela McKnight, son-in-law Keith McKnight, two grandchildren- Zachary Austin McKnight, and Maegan Nicole Rathmann, and his two great grandchildren, James Todd and Maeble Jean. 

He is preceded in death by both parents and his one brother.
