An Othello cattle rancher has left a small fortune to benefit everything from rural health care to wildlife in Eastern Washington. William Crosetto died on Jan. 25. The Spokesman-Review said the 75-year-old worked with the Inland Northwest Community Foundation to establish a legacy.
His $5.1 million estate, along with the upcoming proceeds from the sale of his ranch, will establish several $1 million endowments. One will support rural medical residencies through Providence Health Care’s program in Colville. Crosetto’s second endowment will create a mobile health care unit through WSU’s medical school that will serve rural areas. The remainder of his gift will support a variety of causes about which he was passionate.
Crosetto was single and had no children.
