Obituary of William Andrew Eul

December 15, 1927 – July 3, 2021

William A Eul – Bill was born to Peter and Teresa Eul in Seattle Washington. His father emigrated from Hamburg Germany and his mother emigrated from Austria.  He had a younger sister, Francis who he was very close with and passed away in 2017.

After graduating from West Seattle High School, Bill attended the University of Washington and obtained a degree in mechanical engineering. Bill began and ended a very successful career working for Boeing and retired after 34 years.  He worked on several different projects during his time with Boeing and enjoyed the diversity of his work.

Bill met Eleanor Coien while attending the University of Washington. They were married in 1954 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Seattle. Bill had 2 children, Peter and Penny Eul from a previous marriage. Bill and Eleanor had three children, Kristine, Karl and Kristofer during their marriage of 54 years.

Bill had a passion for the outdoors and travelling. He loved mountain climbing, hiking, skiing, bicycling and boating and he shared this passion with his family taking them on some wonderful adventures over the years. He and Eleanor travelled all over the world both for work and for pleasure.  Bill and Eleanor spent much of their retirement years in Sun Valley skiing in the winter and attending concerts in the summer. Bill continued to spend much of his time in Sun Valley after Eleanor passed away in 2009.

Bill was an adventurous person with a very inquisitive mind. He loved living in his home in West Seattle after Eleanor passed and missed her very much. Bill is survived by three of his children, Penny Reither, Kristine Tryon and Kristofer Eul, who will miss him dearly.
