William (Bill) Joseph Twohy, 48, died of colon cancer in Mesa, Arizona on February 21,2012.  He was surrounded by love.  Bill was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and uncle and he leaves behind many friends in Alaska, Minnesota and Idaho. 
Bill was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on July 26, 1963. He lived life by helping others and showed his love through generosity and devotion to family, friends, church, work, and community, always putting them before himself. Bill’s talents were boundless and if he discovered a new interest he pursued it with passion. He was a skilled and compassionate Registered Nurse Anesthetist, a talented craftsman, a private pilot, an aspiring bass player, a habitual punster and an avid hiker, biker, skier, hunter and fisherman. He was proud of his Catholic faith and took great comfort in it. Bill lived life to the fullest and left the world a better place. 
He was preceded in death by his father, James H. Twohy. He is survived by his wife, Mary Jo Spotts; son Sean (Jessica); daughter Erin; granddaughters Veronica and Emily; mother Shirley; brothers Brian (Sonia), Pat (Beth), Mark (Reyna), Tim (Sue), Paul, Dave (Loni), Matt (Tuesday), and Steve (Leah); sisters Jeanne (Mike) Mariani, Michelle (Greg) Gabriel and Diane (Hugh) Garske, "other brother Dave" Klein and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
A funeral mass will be held in the spring at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Soldotna, Alaska, to be followed by Bill's Ultimate Party. The family thanks the many health care providers who were involved in Bill's care in Alaska and Arizona. Special thanks to Hospice of the Valley in Mesa. Donations may be made to them (in lieu of flowers) at www.hov.org.
