William O’Donnell passed away Aug. 24, 2020.



As a young man from Southern California, Bill served in the Marine Corps and volunteered for duty in the Korean Conflict.

After service he managed a large Southern California rendering company. During this time he served on the board of directors, and one year as president, for the Pacific Coast Renderer’s association.
