All of us here in the office really enjoyed working with your father over the past several years. I have been truly amazed at the mind he had for financial matters at his age. He had a great sense of humor and it was an honor to wear a skirt for him just to make his day. I will unfortunately be out of town for the funeral. I am so sorry for your loss. We will truly miss him! Julie

To Bill's Family: Your father/grandfather was an inspiration to our oldest son, Chad. Chad got to know him at the Heritage, when Chad worked there many years ago, Chad is now graduating Law School and your father was part of this experience. He always spoke to Chad when able and told him how proud he was of his schooling. We all were members with Bill at MPC and when Chad was home he would see your father at church. Chad is now married and finally moving back to Wisconsin, he will sadly miss your Dad, as we all will, a great man who lead an interesting life and was willing to share his stories with us. Our sincere condolences, Bob, Jenny, Chad and Nicole, Nathan and Vanessa and Lucas Schimmelpfenning and Georgia Strickler
