Good News and birth announcements
May 06, 2013, 05:00 AM

William (Bill) Duncan turns 100 years old May 21, 2013.

Bill was born in San Francisco in 1913 and was raised in the Mission District of San Francisco. He was an active soccer player in his youth. He married the love of his life, Alberta Smith, in 1937 (Alberta passed away in 2003) and, in 1951, they moved to Redwood City where Bill still resides in the family home.

Bill worked at Hunters Point Navel Shipyard as a machinist for 35 years and he retired in 1971. For five years, he worked as a maintenance man for the city of Redwood City but he resigned so he could play more golf. Bill played golf well into his late 80s.

Bill was a volunteer at the Veterans Memorial Building in Redwood City, showing movies and serving coffee. He is still an active member in the Fun After Fifty Club and the National Association for Retired Federal Employees and has been an active member of the Masonic Lodge Group since 1971.

Bill's family of four children and 10 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren gather at the family home every Christmas.
