William E. “Bill” Driskell, 76 of Davenport, passed away on November 9, 2021 at ManorCare-Utica Ridge, Bettendorf.  Memorials may be made to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1175 Lincoln Rd, Bettendorf, IA.

William Edward Driskell was born October 16, 1945 in Davenport, the son of Almon E. and Velma P. (nee Zigler) Driskell.  He was united in marriage to Gloria Serrano on February 10, 1968, in Canton, MO. She preceded him in death on September 27, 2010.


Prior to his retirement, Bill had worked in the advertising field as a salesman and a photographer.


Bill was very devout and loved his religion, having been baptized into the faith on July 26, 1957.


He enjoyed studying history (especially Native American history), travel and photography.


Bill was affectionally known as the “energizer bunny” amongst his family and friends for overcoming the adversities that life brought him.  He never let diabetes, and the subsequent amputations, slow him down.


Those left to honor his memory include sons Steve (Kathy) Driskell of Dry Ridge, KY, and Aaron Driskell of Davenport; and a very special niece Dawn Quinones of Davenport.


In addition to his wife Gloria, his parents and step-mother Nellie Mae Driskell, preceded him in death.
