William Francis Locke-Paddon J.D. ’67 April 27, 1942 - April 14, 2014 Resident of Aptos William F. "Bill" Locke-Paddon passed away peacefully at his Aptos home on April 14, 2014, from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Born in Watsonville, the first son of William and Gussie Locke Paddon, he graduated from Watsonville High School, Stanford University and Santa Clara University School of Law. He joined the Watsonville law firm of Wyckoff, Parker, Boyle, & Pope where he practiced law for 29 years until it dissolved in 1996. He and Ralph Sanson formed a new firm and practiced in Aptos until Ralph's death in 2003. Bill then practiced solo until poor health forced him to retire in 2013. Bill was a certified specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate law. He was president of the Santa Cruz County Bar Association in 1981. He was involved in many philanthropic organizations. He helped establish the Community Foundation Santa Cruz County in 1982 and served on its board for many years as well as on the board of Cabrillo College Foundation. In 2003, as directed by the Will of his long-time client, June Borina Schnacke, he helped establish the Borina Foundation to benefit Pajaro Valley charities, serving as its president until his death. Bill loved collecting rocks and minerals; he donated most of his collection to the Cabrillo College Geology Dept. Most of all he was a loving husband and father.  He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Terry, and his children, Bill, Robert (Angela), Tara, and Chrissy (Bill), his 10 grandchildren, his sister Marion Carter and brothers Kenneth and George. His youngest son Steven preceded him in death in 1998.
