Obituary: William John Gardner

October 22, 2019

William John Gardner, fondly known as “B.G.” and “Dollar Bill” (Age 84) of Steamboat Springs, passed away on October 22, 2019 due to complications from a stroke.  During his 40 plus years in Steamboat, B.G. owned many restaurants and bars, but is best remembered for the Butcher Shop Restaurant in Ski Time Square.  He employed and touched the hearts of many through the years.  A celebration of B.G.’s life will be on Father’s Day, June of 2020, hopefully at a familiar location.
