It is with a heavy heart that the Falshaw Family announce the passing of William E. Falshaw, aka Bill , whom peacefully passed away early Monday morning in his home surrounded by his family, and by the grace of a higher power was greeted by his daughter Annette with open arms.

He lived a full life growing up in the Wild West Tucson with his sister Sharon; started his young adult life by joining the Military and traveling the world; after returning home, settled in Nogales, where he met and fell in love with his wife, Socorro, and soon after started a beautiful family together; initiated his work career at the Mountain Bell Phone Company; transitioned to making a career with the U.S. Postal Service and lastly but boldly opened up his own  ‘Bill Falshaw Electric’ company, leaving a legacy career and name for his sons.
