William spent his career selling insurance. He began at Webster Hesket and retired from Old National Bank. He was very active in his community from coaching basketball at Garfield School and Immanuel Lutheran to coaching Tornado youth football and American Legion baseball. He was an avid golfer and loved spending his days on the golf course with his wife and good friends.  As a family, many adventures were had from camping and canoeing to skiing Alpine Valley. William was strong in his faith and commitment to Christ through Immanuel Lutheran Church.

A private family ceremony will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Immanuel Lutheran Church would be appreciated and welcomed and can be made in William's name.
