Lieutenant William T. Gott, USN Retired, of Georgetown, KY, died peacefully on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at the age of 78.
Bill was born on January 15, 1939 in Lexington, KY to Joe and Grace (Reagan) Gott. On January 17, 1959 Bill married his high school sweetheart, Carol Sims, and over the next several years they welcomed three children.
