Welcome to our Caring Bridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.  Whether you call him Willy or Bill, you know he's opinionated, stubborn, and loud. He says it like it is, but is the guy you want in your corner. If you needed it, he would give you the shirt off his back. You can always count on him. We met in high school and have been married for almost 44 years. Not many people thought we'd make it, but here we are. He loves his family and friends and has a passion for hunting, fishing, and classic cars. On Sunday, October 3rd, he started feeling sick. He thought it was just a bug. The next day, he still felt crummy, but drove up to the cabin on Lake George (7 miles from Itasca State Park) to shut down for the season. Instead of improving, his illness worsened. He didn't leave the cabin, and wouldn't let anyone in because he found out we had been exposed to Covid. I called him a couple of times everyday to see how he was doing, and of course he said "I'm ok, I'll be fine". Several family members tried to get him to go to the hospital. Needless to say, he wouldn't go. His health continued to deteriorate. He no longer was answering his phone, so our cousin checked on him, Tuesday, October 12th and knew he was in trouble. He looked awful. He hadn't eaten or taken his medications for a week, and was now incoherent. Our Grandson drove up there and was able to get him to St Joseph's Hospital in Park Rapids, MN. They did what they could, but based on everything that was going on, they called to say he needed to be transferred to a hospital with a Covid ICU. They found him a bed at Sanford Health Fargo. He was transported there by ambulance on Wednesday, October 13th. By the end of the day, he had to be sedated, intubated, and put on a ventilator. Now, it's a waiting game. Sanford Fargo is known for it's excellent knowledge and treatment of severe Covid cases. We appreciate your support, prayers and words of hope and encouragement. I'll do my best to keep this site up to date with the latest information. This Covid virus is dangerous and evil. Please stay safe and healthy.
