Let us introduce ourselves.
Bill and his generation long ago crossed the Great Divide. Furthermore, the next generation—Bill’s two daughters, Daisy and Georgia, and their husbands—have followed the same trail. It’s the third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh generations of Bill’s family who honor him today by keeping his stories, and therefore his life, alive and well.
The third generation is composed of Bill’s seven grandchildren.
Bill’s older daughter Daisy had five sons and a daughter. Donal died December 1, 1981, at the age of 59. Ralph died March 8, 2002, at the age of 74. Victor died July 26, 1993, at the age of 63. Lala May died January 24, 1939, at the age of 3. Darrel lives in Texas. Rodney lives in Arizona.
Bill’s younger daughter Georgia had two daughters. Patsy lives on the family ranch in Montana. Virginia lives in California, except during the summers, which are spent on the family ranch in Montana.

The last three generations, unfortunately, were cheated of the opportunity to know Bill Huntington. The greatest gift represented by keeping Bill’s work in print, therefore, is its ability to make him live again into perpetuity. The web spun by Bill Huntington was long, tight, and strong. It flourishes today.
