William R. "Bill" Underwood, 68, of Camby, died on January 31, 2024 at his home. Bill was born on March 22, 1955, in Franklin, Indiana. He grew up in Martinsville where he graduated in 1973. 

Bill was an avid motorcycle enthusiast, beginning when he was 15 years old. He was hired to do a painting project for the Honda Shop in Martinsville and his payment for the job was his first motorcycle - a 1970 Honda 160. Over the years, he enjoyed working on and rebuilding motorcycles. He and many of his friends took bike trips through the Smoky Mountains and the Badlands. When at home, Bill enjoyed the company of his Collie dog, Cassy. They would walk every day in the neighborhood and the local park. Bill retired from Indy West Harley Davidson in Plainfield where he worked as a mechanic. 

Bill is survived by his sister, Linda (Kent) Clark; brother, Robert K. (Stephanie) Underwood; nephews, James M. Brinson, Jr., Alexander E. Ward, William R. Underwood, Elijah V. Underwood; and great-niece, Lauren Brinson. 

Bill is preceded in death by his mother, Rosemary Eskridge; and her husband, Robert Eskridge.
