William Paul Saylors, 81, passed away on January 9, 2022. After a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease he passed comfortably at his home in Santa Rosa Valley California, with his children by his side.
Bill was born on November 11, 1940 to Jennie Gayle Oyler and Preston Gobin Keith. He was the youngest of four children. Bill didn’t attend school until he was 8 years old. When he was 12 years old, he and his older sister Susan were adopted by their aunt, Kathryn Oyler, and her husband, Paul Saylors. Bill grew up in North Hollywood, California.
Growing up, he quickly learned to be self-sufficient and started working at a very young age. From delivering newspapers, to working on cars, hard work became his way of life. Bill was always underneath a car and loved to build engines. He even had a red corvette as a teenager! Bill went to three different high schools and graduated from North Hollywood High School in 1959. He was athletic, handsome and always the “life of the party”. Bill was a dare devil and would try anything and everything and he was a natural leader.
He met his wife, Marsh Ogden, in high school and was persistent to keep her forever. They were married four years later on February 1, 1963, in the LDS Los Angeles temple. Together they had six children, Paul (Catherine Spruill), Holly, Billy (Malena Parra) Shawn (Johany Ruiz), Sunny (B.J.Thomas) and Summer (Andrew Quist).
After getting married, he tried on many hats to find a career. Bill worked in construction framing houses, building cars at GM, servicing pools, hospital administration, and even worked for free at Mike’s Tires because they weren’t hiring at the time. He loved it and realized it was a great fit for him and they loved him because he was such a hard worker. This was his introduction into the world of tires!
Bill found his place in the tire business at the age of 29 and opened his first tire store, Bill’s Tire Center,” in October 1970 in Lancaster, CA. The Saylors family lived in Lancaster for 15 years.
Bill opened Tire Man in Thousand Oaks, California in 1984.
He has always loved cars, motorcycles and basically anything that he could drive. The faster the better! Bill owned airplanes, boats, dirt bikes, ATV, dune buggies, jet skis, Harley Davidsons, Gold Wings, and his true love, classic old cars. He found joy in the journey of restoring old cars. He was partial to the 1957 Chevy but he loved so many! For him life was fast, and furious and he would always ask us “are you having fun yet?!”
One of Bill’s favorite things to do was to ride his motorcycle up the Pacific Coast on Highway 1. He has ridden his motorcycles thousands of miles, all over the world, often with his wife Marsha on the back.
Bill’s work ethic was fierce and could not be matched. His generosity reached far and wide from family members, friends and throughout the community and wherever he went. He was a friend to all and always had a soft spot for the underdog and anyone in need.
Bill shared all that he had with everyone and was known to give you the very shirt off his back. He never had to be asked to do anything, if he saw a need he just did it. Bill’s life motto was “organization is the key to life”.
Bill has been the patriarch of the Ogden and the Saylors families since the death of his wife Marsha’s father in 1977. His family was everything to him. He will be deeply missed by all, especially his 16 grandchildren: Savanah (Dakota), Ty, Cate, Thalia, Saylor, Mason, Lilly, Jane, Nadia, Niya, Rubi, Milo, Tabi, Nati, Simon, Holly Sofia, and 1 great grandchild Skylee.
His generosity and hard work has helped many people to pursue their dreams. To know Bill Saylors is to love him.
Funeral Services will be held Tuesday January 18, 2022 at the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints located at 1600 Erbes Rd. Thousand Oaks CA 91362.
A viewing will be held at 10:00am with the service at 11am. You can also join via zoom https://zoom.us/j/96595840282

- A Life Well Lived -
A life well lived is a precious gift,
of hope and strength and grace,
from someone who has made our world
a brighter, better place.
It's filled with moments, sweet and sad
with smiles and sometimes tears,
with friendships formed and good times shared,
and laughter through the years.
A life well lived is a legacy,
of joy and pride and pleasure,
a living, lasting memory
our grateful heart's will treasure.
