It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of William Elvis Sloan II, who died in his home on Aug. 1. He was 60 years old.

He served as Executive Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Sloan Valve Co., leading manufacturer of Flushometers and electronic faucets. The company was founded in Chicago 94 years ago by his grandfather, the late William E. Sloan. It is now headquartered in Franklin Park, Ill.

Bill began his remarkable career with Sloan Valve in 1957. His unique brand of enthusiasm and humor, along with his "can do/will do" attitude helped make his company a leader in the industry.

In addition to his corporate responsibilities, Bill served as an active member in a variety of organizations, including: the Driscoll High School Advisory Board; the Board of Director's of Butterfield Country Club; Board of Director's for the Hide Away Beach Condo Association of Marco Island; Island Country Club (Marco Island); the Economic Development Committee for Franklin Park; the Addison Planning Commission; the American Foundrymen's Society; and the Midwest Industrial Management Association.

Bill thoroughly enjoyed his antique car collection and racing, as well as a good round of golf. He had an immense passion for life and a total commitment to his family and his company.

He is survived by his wife, Corinne, and two children. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to: The Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation, 1760 E. River Road, Suite 115, Tucson, AZ 85718, The American Cancer Society and The Alzheimer's Association.
