The Incentive for Excellence
In Memoriam – Bill Biava
We are saddened to announce the passing of Bill Biava, husband to Kathy Biava, both of Universal Odyssey Inc., who died at his home in Newport Beach, CA on April 21 following a two year battle with cancer.
Bill was an engineer by trade but while looking to wind down his career, he joined his wife Kathy Biava, President, and daughters and took a consulting position at Universal Odyssey, Inc., a Travel and Incentive company. This quickly developed into full time, becoming CFO and enjoying every day of this 10 year position. With Universal Odyssey, Bill worked with the legends of Major League Baseball putting on Baseball Fantasy Camps for corporate executives, Race Car Driving Schools, and Rock & Roll Fantasy Camps. While helping manage many exciting Incentive and Convention programs worldwide, his favorite program was the Honda Hoot Motorcycle Rally with 18,000 attendees in the Great Smokey Mountains.
Condolences can be left on CaringBridge.com. In Lieu of flowers please donate to the Make a Wish Foundation.
All are welcome to join us in celebrating his life.
