Gone To Soon

William “Bill” Jack Clerico, of Kearns Utah passed away on August 17, 2022. He was only 49 years old. Our family is devastated and shocked by this loss. Bill was born on January 15, 1973, to his parents Alvin Clerico and Sharron Sue Chidester.

As a child Bill loved his hot wheels collection, his dirt bike and was always a fan of Metallica. Bill had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed hiking on some of his favorite trails in the nearby mountains. After Bill finished high school, he worked in different odd jobs, enjoying the variety of life and the thrill of learning new trades. Bill mostly loved working with animals and mastered his skills in the kitchen working as a chef in several restaurants in the Salt Lake and Logan areas. Bill was kind to everyone he met and would give the shirt off his back to anyone. His kind and calm demeanor was always comforting to all those around him.

Bill was preceded in death by his father Alvin Clerico, his mother Sharron Sue Sample, sister Sheila Clerico and his brother Ted Clerico.

Bill is lovingly survived by the love of his life Alexis Bench and their pug Oy, his mother-in-law Anita Bench, his sister Loretta Gull (Darrell), Brother James Clerico (Terri), Sister Cheryl Rodriguez (Frank), several nieces and nephews and many, many friends he met along the way.

A celebration of life will be held September 10th 2022

Bill is my fiancee/common law husband for almost the past 8 years. Words can't describe how amazing he truly is. He is such an inspiration and brought me so much happiness to have as much time as I did to know him... But it was way too short. Bill has been my rock for almost a decade, and I was the same to him as he always said. We always said that we are twins. He brightened everyone's day that he encountered on our daily adventures. I miss him so very much. There's absolutely no words. Bill is forever loved and missed forever. I LOVE YOU, BABY BILL!!!❤️😘 Oy sends you kisses 💋
