Bill Beckwith Dies In A Motorcycle Accident
Bill passed on Monday, Dec. 2, when his motorcycle was hit by a car in San Francisco. Bill was a popular figure on Curb Appeal, which he co-hosted with John Gidding, Chip Wade and Kimberly Lacy. The handsome handyman helped homeowners make improvements to the outdated exteriors of their homes to raise their appeal to potential buyers. It was a great job for Bill, who “started working with his hands at an early age” on a 60-acre vegetable farm in midcoast Maine, according to his official HGTV bio. He then studied English and martial arts at the University of Montana, and moved to Northern California to become a licensed contractor. He ran his own company, BB Design Build, in addition to working on Curb Appeal.
HGTV expressed their condolences in an email: “The HGTV family is deeply saddened by Bill’s tragic death and we mourn his loss along with his many family and friends who will miss his creativity, adventurous spirit and general love of life.”
HollywoodLife also sends our thoughts and prayers to Bill’s family during this time of great loss.
