Billy Joseph Cuch, age 40 of Roosevelt, passed away June 24, 2018 at his home.
He was born June 1, 1978 in Ely, Nevada, to Irwin Eugene Cuch and Irene Steele.
Bill worked as a carpenter in construction. He was a fun-loving person that enjoyed life. He was happiest when he was hunting, fishing, playing games with the
nephews, western dancing, and playing handgame. He was a Sundancer and a member of the Native American Church. He was very spiritual and read the Bible, his faith in God was strong. He was very empathetic and compassionate to everyone especially children and would help anyone. He had a gentle soul, especially when he was working with horses, he was a horse whisperer and had an uncanny ability to calm down even the most unruly of horses – they sensed his gentle nature.
