This world lost the most amazing, loving and caring husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather on January 20, 2017.Bill was born on August 27, 1951 and his journey thru this life left his footprints on everyone and everything he touched, including being a business owner, his pride and joy classic car the lime green 67 Nova, going to car shows and hanging with his son-in-law Jeff aka “Bossman”, talking cars or building something. He had GPS to every yard sale in town because there was always a great deal to be had. Having BBQ’s and bonfire’s with family and friends. Always there to hand out advise whether you wanted it or not. Then came his 2 adorable great granddaughters. They quickly became “ papa’s little girlies”. He loved them so.
His forever family includes his wife Peggy, daughters Tammy (Jeff) Thurk , Danielle Raehl, Son William (Willard), grandchildren Ryan Hayes (finance` Brea), Austin Genett, Alec Thurk, Ava Thurk, Zach Hayes (finance` Jessica) Jacob Raehl, Ava Hayes, Great Granddaughters Kaylee Sue and Lexi Jean Hayes. His best friend, John Echrich, and many other friends, and acquaintances. Fur babies Max, Muncie, Taz, Shae, and hairy grandson Duke.
Per Bill’s request no service will be held. A Memorial is planned for a later date.
The family would like to thank the Ministry Hospice Team. Especially his nurse Faye (Flo). They became friends quickly and he looked forward to her visits.
