Back to Bill's LifeWeb


"William Douglas Hood, beloved father, grandfather and friend, passed away peacefully at his home on February 3, 2023, at the age of 86.

Bill was born into a family of grace and charm, which he embraced and displayed throughout his life. Bill developed deep and meaningful friendships, from his elementary school days through his time as a fraternity member (ΔΚΕ) at the University of Washington, his 50 year marriage to Ruth, and beyond. Many of his clients, who sought his expertise as a CPA, became close personal friends.

Bill was a proud and dedicated professional, practicing as a CPA until the age of 80.

With a heart as big as his smile, Bill had a genuine interest in the well being of others, which endeared him to those who knew him.

The Hood family would like to express deep gratitude to Bill's team from Providence Hospice and his six dedicated caregivers provided to us by McDonald Employment Services.

He is survived by his three children, Steve Hood (Andrea Hood) and grandchildren Liam and Mallory, Maralise Hood Quan (Julio Quan) and their grandchildren, and M. Eileen Hood (Michael Bruce) and grandchildren Sophia and Finlay.

In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to American Red Cross (, or to Capitol Hill EcoDistrict (1620 12th Ave, Suite 205, Seattle WA, 98122) in Bill Hood's name.

Bill's memory will live on through the many lives he touched and the countless friends he made along the way.

He will be deeply missed but always remembered with love."

and affection.
