Cattle Rancher Leaves Millions

“Crosetto led a simple and      conservative life”

Gray Circle Header (7)

William “Bill” Crosetto of Othello Washington was a cattle rancher and all around good citizen.  A life-long bachelor, Bill lived a quiet life on his cattle ranch outside of town where his work ethic was well-known.  He lived the “early to bed/early to rise” conservative lifestyle of a rancher while still finding time to drive his weathered pickup truck to the local cafe to shoot the breeze with a handful of good friends.

This is why everyone in Othello was shocked to learn that this quiet, unpretentious man was actually a self-made millionaire!  It turns out that Bill had amassed his wealth in cattle ranching but super-sized it by living frugally.

Unknown to most, Bill had been working with a local foundation to set up a multimillion dollar legacy for his community.  After Bill’s passing this past January, his secret was revealed to all.

Where did Bill’s philanthropic streak come from, you might ask?  Many believe he was inspired by a well-known uncle or two.  This is a family with  philanthropy in their DNA.

Whether inspired by his family or all on his own, Bill Crosetto has made a lasting contribution to the community he loved.
