It is with heavy heart that I announce the passing of Bill Daily recently after a short illness.  Condolences to his wife Jackie and family. 

I was recently with Bill & his wife Jackie for the WC/SW Conference in Prescott, Arizona July 7 – 11.  After returning home he mentioned to Jackie that he was having issues with his lower abdomen area.  He saw a doctor and ultimately went in for surgery only to pass away.  Bill has been a Blue Knights Family since 2005.  He was retired from the Arizona DPS.

Cards can be sent to the Daily residence.  If you do not have their address cards can be sent to our Chapter address which I will then forward:
