William F. Draper Jr.

Willy, local ski instructor, died Tuesday, March 8, after a day of skiing with friends. His love for life was evidenced by his many friends who would tell stories of his amazing feats and big heart.

A gathering will be held on Sunday, March 27 at 4 p.m. in Elk Camp Meadows or join us for a day of skiing at A-Basin on May 1.

Willy was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in New York City. He is survived by his son, Wolfy, and sister, Maggi. Consider giving a gift to the American Diabetes Association.
