In Memorium: Bill Bliss 2017

     West Shore locals know the Bliss name instinctively.   We are used to visiting our "locals" park near Emerald Bay: D.L. Bliss State Park.   The camping is excellent-not many camp grounds right on the Lake.   But at 'Bliss', it's right there.
     Just over a week ago, William "Bill" Bliss, aged 92, passed on.   It truly is the end of an era at Tahoe.   For 3 generations his family ran a hotel and resort on the Nevada side at Glenbrook.  The 'ranch' hosted thousands of guests over the years.
      Bill was born in Oakland, California and spent all his youthful summers at the ranch at Glenbrook.  Eventually, he became the manager of the resort.   Among his many interests were traveling(especially to the South Pacific).   In 1969 he married and started a family.
