WILLIAM ALONSON BUZICK III

June 26th 1956 – December 16th 2011. William was born in San Francisco Ca. to William A. Buzick Jr., and Mary Lee Buzick. He grew up in Hillsborough until his family relocated to Winnetka, a suburb of Chicago. William was strikingly handsome with a fearless spirit. He was known for his accomplishments as a Competitive Downhill Snow Skier, Water Skier, Dive Master, Photographer, Filmmaker and Rock Guitarist. William graduated from the New Trier West High School in Winnetka Ill., the University of Colorado, the Art Center Pasadena, and the Los Angeles Film School. William also completed the curriculum of the Musicians Institute in 2000 while later in 2009 he earned his Licensure as a Realtor in the State of Hawaii. During his earlier life in Chicago, William established his athletic prowess by winning the Mid-West Regional Jr. Championship in Slalom Skiing. In Los Angeles he pursued his dream as a musician, a commercial photographer, as well as a filmmaker with his cutting edge feature film “No Rest For The Wicked”. Beyond motion pictures, his passion for music led him to form several Rock Bands throughout his life to play both his originally composed music as well as popular and challenging rock covers. “Keep on Rocking” was a favorite mantra of William’s and he enjoyed “living on the edge” a lifestyle which ultimately drew him to the big wave surfer’s paradise of Hawaii’s Sunset Beach. Pursuing his passion for surfing, skiing, and rock and roll, William lived the surfer’s dream in Hawaii while also spending time with family and friends in Fresno, California waterskiing and developing his company “Rock Straps” which produced custom leather guitar straps. William’s persona was larger than life and he will be dearly missed. His sudden passing was a shock to all. He died in his sleep, in the place he loved most, the North Shore of Hawaii. He is survived by his loving wife Lori and adoring sister Bonnie, and his beloved dog Bella. A ceremony is pending. For information please email to forwilliam@khwenterprizes.com
