wonderful years together.
Bill was a graduate of Neenah High School class of 1957. Following high school, Bill enlisted in the United

teams for six years. He loved coaching his son’s baseball teams during these years. He was a long time member

drive blood donations for the blood bank every month. He helped serve food to the homeless during the
holidays at First Presbyterian Church, Bill was very generous of giving his time to help serve others. In his free
time, he enjoyed fishing, gardening, yardwork and watching sports, especially the Badgers. His true passion
