William (Bill) Joseph Saltsman passed away comfortably at home with his loving family by his side on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021. He was born October 3rd, 1935, in Steubenville, Ohio, to George Loman and Elizabeth Emiline Saltsman. He was the oldest of three with his two younger sisters Karen and Diane. George Loman passed away in 1945 when he was 8 years old, and Elizabeth Emiline remarried in 1946 to John Hitch. Bill graduated from North High School in Akron, Ohio in 1954. He then went on to serve in the United States Air Force from 1954-1962 as a weather observer. Many of those years with the Air Force were spent in Okinawa, Japan. Bill then married Sandra Jean Brewer on October 4th, 1958, in Akron, Ohio. They have been married for 64 years and are the parents of Jeff, Tricia, and Andrew. Their grandchildren include Ryne, Sabrina, Kyle (Jeff) and Tanner, Loman, Victoria (Tricia). They are very proud great grandparents to Ashton, Violet (Victoria), Nolan, Kendall (Tanner), Haunani and soon to be another little girl (Sabrina). Bill spent one year on the Akron Police Department before moving out to California in 1960. He started on the Pasadena Police Department in 1962 and retired in 1992 (30 years). Post retirement he went on to be a Sergeant for the Pasadena Unified School District Police Department for 12 years. Bill also coached baseball in the City of Pasadena while an active member of the police department and spent many years coaching both of his sons in the Crescenta Sports Association. He was devoted to his Crescenta Valley community as a long-time supporter of Falcon Athletics, member of the Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church and served on many committees during his time. He received an AA degree from Glendale Community College while an active-duty police officer. Bill made an impact as successful police officer, a faithful friend, and a passionate fan of THE OHIO STATE BUCKEYES! GO BUCKS! Above all, he leaves a legacy of heartfelt love for his family. As a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, and uncle, Bill will be missed more that words can say. He found great pride in sharing in the lives of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren who he loved and cared for in every way possible. There will be a private interment on October 26th at the Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside, Ca.
