I am so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I worked with him for over a decade when he provided volunteer support to Junior Achievement (JA). He served on our board of directors, functioned as liaison between Appvion and JA, taught dozens of classroom programs, and helped hundreds of local kids become financially responsible and prepare for a career in which they could excel. Bill was a dedicated role model and kind, generous man who made a positive difference. He will be greatly missed.

Tammy Miller left a message on August 16, 2019:
I had the pleasure of working with Bill at the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce back in the early 80s. During the brief time that I spent in Appleton, Bill was a great friend with a dry, quick-witted sense of humor. His passion for his work, his love of running and, eventually, his love for Julie were so admirable. I have many fond memories of my time in Appleton because of Bill and the many other friends I met there. My heart breaks for Bill's family and friends, and I send my sincere condolences and prayers.
Serena Herberg left a message on August 16, 2019:
I just received the sad news of Bill’s passing and my heart is so very sad. I had the great joy of working with him for seven years at the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and sharing wonderful friendship as well. He always made me laugh and he will be sorely missed.

Julie and family, please accept my deepest condolences. I can’t be there in person because of the distance of our current home, but my heart is with you.

Love, Serena

We were really (negatively) surprised byb the message that cousin Bill passed away. We still can't believe it. We keep our good memoriesof him. First when we were guests in his house during our stay in Appleton and when we visited Appleton on a later moment. We remember Bill as a social and committed person. Our thoughts are with you. Especially July and of course Leo, John and Jim and the whole family.

Your sister-in-law Jean left a message on August 14, 2019:
I will always cherish my memories of you, Bill. Your unwavering loyalty, ever-ready kindness and quick wit. I always knew when it was you on the phone with my husband by the banter and “8-counting” that ensued. Forever in my heart.
