Lives Lost: At 97, World War II vet takes a final road

SEATTLE (AP) — In the final months of his life, Bill Chambers was no longer able to walk, but he found peace in motion. Three times a week, his oldest daughter, Patty Cooper, would meet him at the adult family home where he lived with four other World War II veterans, load him into her Volvo SUV, and take him on long drives through the evergreen forests, farmlands and suburbs east of Seattle. He knew the roads well. In about 30 years working for the county, he built most of them. The 97-year-old died on March 14 after contracting COVID-19.
