Allardice, William

Jan. 4, 1933 – Dec. 23, 2013
William Rodney Allardice went to be with his Lord on Dec. 23, 2013, after a two-year battle with melanoma. He was born Jan. 4, 1933, in Santa Monica. His parents were William and Grace Allardice. Bill was the first of twin boys. His brother John was born minutes later and his sister Dorothy Jean was born two years after. They grew up in Van Nuys. Bill and Jack graduated from Van Nuys High School in 1951.

Bill attended Westmont College in Santa Barbara for two years where he met his wife Lois. They were engaged April 10, 1953, married Nov. 20, 1953, and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this past November. Bill served two years in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. Following his service, he attended Cal Poly Pomona and UC Berkeley, graduating 1961 with a bachelor’s degree in soil science. By this time, Bill and Lois had three children — Teena, Sharie and Billy.

Bill was a staff research associate in the land, air and water resources department at UC Davis for 30 years. He served as a volunteer firefighter for 30 years, first at UC Davis and then for the city of Davis. He served as chair of the UC Davis Staff Assembly and the University of California Staff Assembly during his career at UCD.

Bill and Lois retired in 1991. They served for 10 years in the American Red Cross. Bill was a member of Post 77 of the American Legion and the Fly Fishers of Davis. He also served on the Davis Grievance Appeal Board, Human Relations Commission, the Visual Blight Appeals Board and the Yolo County Grand Jury. Bill’s family attended the First Baptist Church for more than 50 years. After retirement, Bill and Lois traveled to Europe several times.

Bill has seven grandsons, one granddaughter, one great-grandson and two great-granddaughters. Every year on Christmas Eve, the grandchildren eagerly anticipated the arrival of Santa Claus. Bill volunteered as Santa Claus at the Davis Farmers Market and other venues. He loved to camp, hunt and fish and took his grandkids to the Antioch pier at every opportunity when the kids were little. Their favorite camping and fishing grounds were Wood’s Lake, Silver Lake, Caple’s Lake and Pipi Valley Campground as well as the American River, Sacramento River and Yuba River.

Bill is survived by his wife, Lois; his daughters, Teena and husband Brad Topoian, and Sharon and husband Joe Chmura; his son, William Allardice and wife Sophie; his twin brother John Allardice and wife Sera; and his sister, Dororthy Schmelzel. He also is survived by his grandkids, Guillaume Allardice and wife Melody and children, William and Liliane, Etienne Allardice, Philippe Allardice and wife Abby, Benjamin Allardice, David Chmura and wife Stacey, Joseph Chmura, Dan Chmura and wife Shauna and children, Payton and the precious one on the way, Alisha Chmura and many nieces and nephews. A private memorial service was held at the First Baptist Church.

We will all miss our beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather and great-grandfather tremendously!
