Morris William  "Bill" Brazelton
1938 - 2023
Morris William "Bill" Brazelton of Powell, WY passed away on September 24, 2023 at Billings Clinic, MT with his wife by his side.
Bill was born on September 10, 1938 in Basin, WY to Clair and Ellen Brazelton. He attended the Winchester one-room schoolhouse with his sisters and brother through 8th grade before going on to graduate from Worland High School in 1956. He served his country in the United States Air Force and was honorably discharged in 1960. He and Mary were married in 1963, and the couple moved to Powell in 1971. Bill worked for Montana Dakota Utilities for 38 years. 
Bill’s favorite place to be was on the back of his horse. He loved spending summers in Battle Park on the Big Horns. Bill never knew a stranger, and made many friends giving horse-packing classes all over the Midwest. Bill and Mary were founding members of the Shoshone Backcountry Horseman in 1993. He also was an active member of The Gideons, and New Life Church of Powell. Most of all, Bill spent everyday sharing a love for Jesus with anyone in his path. He was the most kind, generous, and selfless man who will be greatly missed by so many.
