William Siekman was an incredibly generous man who gave every year to his community. I honestly believed he would live forever in that he always seemed to be here. He truly will live forever in all that he has given and the work done with those gifts. Appleton is blessed that this was his home. May God bless William Siekman forever.

Dear Charlie and Faffie, It was with deep sadness that I learned of Bill's passing. Many memories flooded back of our times together, of our conversations, and of the great respect I had for him. He was one of the greatest listeners I have ever had the privilege to know. Please know that Bill will live on in every one of us who was blessed to know him. I am so sorry we cannot be with you for Bill's life celebration, but we are in Phoenix with my 90 year old mother who is experiencing health difficulties. Please know that you, and your extended family, are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Craig & Annette Frier

As stated well by others throughout this guestbook, my thoughts and prayers are with Faffie and Charlie, their families. For several years in the 1960's our family lived in Appleton and were blessed to have the Seikman family living across the street from our home. They were always kind, respectful and generous to everyone---even those of us who were neighborhood children and teenagers. It has been many years since our family moved from Appleton but the Siekman family has remained among the fond memories of my childhood and high school years sharing a wonderful neighborhood in Appleton, Wi.

Our sincere condolences to the family in memory of Bill; a full life lived with a genuine flair, wit and gusto. The Fox Valley and it's people have benefited greatly over the years through Bill's generosity, enthusiasm and caring. It was both a pleasure and a privilege to have known Bill during the Appleton Papers years and to have known of his love for his family. We trust your special memories will sustain you during this difficult time.

Charlie and Faffie, It was with great sadness that I read of the passing of your wonderful father. My most precious childhood memories revolved around your family and the great times at the "farm". Faffie, I think of you often as I continued my love for horses and ponies and became a breeder of Welsh ponies later in life. I developed that love from you and your remarkable mother. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
