William Charles Bessire, 68, Fargo ND, went to heaven on Wednesday, March 16th, 2011 after having fought the good fight against cancer.

Bill was born in Grafton, ND, and grew up in Hoople.  He joined the service right after graduating from Hoople High in 1960.  After serving in the Army, he attended UND and graduated in 1968 with a business degree. He worked for Colborn School Supply for many years, then began his career at the Veterans Administration here in Fargo in 1984 and became their best ever Canteen Manager. He retired in January 2011 after serving for 24 years.  He loved most spending time with his family and grandchildren, and got to enjoy travels to Seattle, Los Angeles and Israel before going to meet his Saviour.  He was a wonderful, loving husband, father, and grandpa and will be greatly missed.  Mizpah.
