Bill Neikirk died unexpectedly at his home on Sunday, October 8, 2017. He was 62.
A person could have no better friend than Bill. He was a free spirit with a generous heart. Bill loved to have a good time with others - golfing, skiing, barbequing, watching sports, talking and traveling. A hard worker of great skill, he put down hundreds of acres of floor coverings during his career, making friends all along the way while doing so. The person most important to Bill was his wife, Vicki. They were partners both in work and in life. It was Vicki who brought out Bill's loving side. Their devotion to and acceptance of each other created a wonderful marriage apparent to all who knew them.
Bill was born on December 30, 1954, in Greenwich, Connecticut to John Orr Neikirk and Doris Ebling Neikirk. He graduated with a BA degree from the University of Denver and lived his adult life first in Vail, Colorado, and then in Bluffton, South Carolina.
Bill is survived by his wife, Victoria Long Neikirk, of Bluffton; two siblings, Nancy Neikirk Budington (Robert) of Simsbury, Connecticut, John Orr Neikirk Jr. (Hope) of Scotia, New York; and several cousins, neices and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Anne Neikirk.
A reception in Bill's honor will be hosted by Vicki and Bill's siblings from 4:00 - 7:00 pm, this Thursday, October 12, in Sun City. All are welcome to attend at the Lake House, 1251 Sgt. William Jasper Boulevard, Bluffton, SC 29909.
Because he so loved dogs, donations may be made in Bill's memory to Maranatha Farm Animal Rescue. By postal mail to Maranatha Farm, 342 Crabapple Lane, Ridgeland, SC 29936; or online to maranathafarm.net (then click 'How You Can Help' on the top red line).

My husband and I were shocked and saddened when we heard of Bill’s passing. He certainly was a true craftsman that did amazing work, but he was an even better person .. cared deeply about his wife Vicki and had a real passion for doing the best job he could for each and every client. We are sorry that we are out of town and will miss his memorial service.. our deepest condolences to Vicki.
