 Bill Marcroft Death – Dead | Bill Marcroft Obituary – Passed Away

Bill Marcroft Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Bill Marcroft.

Years ago as a sportswriter for The Spectrum & Daily News in St. George, I was assigned to cover a Crimson Club golf tourney and banquet. Among the foursome I attemped to golf with included Bill Marcroft. We had such a great time sharing our collective sports memories, talking about our families, his long career as the University of Utah play-by-play announcer and my much shorter career in sports media. Not growing up in Utah, I admit that I never knew of his work to that point. He seemed very interested in knowing more about my work then.
When our foursome had completed 18 holes, Bill talked me into playing another nine holes with him. I mean, what was banquet food, we thought, when we could keep golfing and laughing up a storm?
When Bill’s wife called his cell phone, he explained that he was doing extra golfing with his friend Doug and she shouldn’t worry, he would get plenty to eat later.
I was saddened by today’s news of his passing. What a classy and kind gentleman and one of my favorite highights from my days at the paper.
R.I.P. Bill.

Bill Marcroft was one of the best. Kind. Funny. So knowledgeable. Really cared about every athlete, their team, and their family. I worked with him for years, and always felt his joy. ❤ I’ll miss his laugh the most! RIP Bill.

Bill Marcroft, the voice of the University of Utah Utes and one of Capt. Len’s BBQ greatest supporters, died today.
He visited with us often and had a great smile. He took our BBQ home to his wife for dinner.
He became a good friend and will be missed!!

So long to my friend Bill Marcroft. Plenty of memories together with our South High connection, talks on the road during my playing days, rounds of golf & the time in my home when he gave me guidance before my first Ute radio call. Bill is the Ute of all Utes and will be missed!

I’ll always remember being a brand new reporter and my wife saying, “Wow. You really do know Bill Marcroft!” Great guy, very nice man. Always helpful to anyone who asked. Thank you, Bill.

I’m so sad to hear of Bill Marcroft’s passing. He was one of my broadcast heroes and I was blessed to work with him for a few years before he retired. Just an amazing, talented and wonderful icon in Utah who will be forever missed!

My favorite memories of Bill Marcroft were his postgame interviews with Majerus. Those couldn’t have been easy. Majerus was always exhausted after games and incoherent at times. Marcroft always handles it with his trademark sense of humor and grace.

We are Talkin’ Cougar football with Zach Wilson and paying tribute to longtime KUTV sportscaster Bill Marcroft tonight on Talkin’ Sports. Thanks to Reece Stein for the classic photo.

I have memories of Bill Marcroft calling @UtahMBB games for most of my young life but my favorite memory was when I met the Man in person. We were in a hospital. He was waiting for his wife. He told stories about the #Utes but mostly we talked Golf 1/2

Sad to hear about passing of Mr. Ute Bill Marcroft. Spent many a Friday night over dinner before Ute games with him and the late Bruce Woodbury. He was a devoted husband to his wife Joyce. I’ll miss that hearty laugh. Here’s story after his retirement.

I’m honored that Bill Marcroft was my friend, as he was to so many. Always such a joy to see and talk to. A larger than life personality that filled any room he was in and graced Utah’s airways. A broadcasting legend. I will miss him greatly.

It’s another exciting episode of WD-Sporty, where @wesleyabc4 and @dana_greene discuss the @USUFootball shakeups, another @Utah_Football cancellation, and the passing of the legendary Bill Marcroft.

So many great stories about Bill Marcroft and this is one of them. Shortly after I moved to Utah in 1992 he gave me a Ute Gymnastics history lesson.

A heartfelt tribute to Bill Marcroft tonight . A great man, devoted husband and true friend. Rest in peace my friend and thank you!
