William Meldin Raeburn passed away of heart failure on March 1, 2013 at his home in Lakeland, Fla.
William was born on September 7, 1937 to William and Susan Raeburn. He graduated from Ann Arbor High School, Eastern Michigan College, and received a masters degree from the University of Michigan. Bill taught mathematics and computer programing at Romulus High School, Homer Public Schools, and Tecumseh High School, retiring from the latter in 1993.
Bill served as an assistant scout master of the Britton Area Boy Scouts and enjoyed many camping opportunities with the scouts, as well as his own family. He thoroughly enjoyed his winters in Florida where he kept busy helping others who were having problems with their computers. Bill was a member of the Ridgeway Church of the Nazarene, attending Sunday School and church faithfully when he was in Michigan.
