    Our family was saddened to learn of Bill’s passing.
    I first met Bill at a family gathering at Evelyn’s about 2006(?) – my Mom is Violet Heid, Otto & Maggie Klukus’s daughter – and spent a most enjoyable afternoon getting to know him and about his family: believe me there was no prouder a husband, Dad, and grandfather. We shared vacation stories: good and bad (amazing that both elicited smiles & chuckles) as well as work and family stories. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to garner that memory of Bill.
    On behalf of Violet, Viola and Alvina (Babe), please know that he and your family are in our memories (I know there are many), and thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Sheila Steelbrand
