THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
William R. Edlbeck
Issue Date: December 3, 2021
William "Bill" Richard Edlbeck, age 64, of Wausaukee, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Thursday, November 25, 2021.
He was born in Menominee, Michigan on September 19, 1957 to Richard and Elizabeth (Bernardy) Edlbeck. Bill was united in marriage to Karren in 2006 and they officially joined their families together.
He deeply enjoyed fishing with his children and grandchildren and even had assistance from his beloved pitbull, Maggie Moo, in reeling in the "big one".
Bill could often be found going for long rides to enjoy a Packer game on the radio or to spot the deer roaming the quiet fields of Wausaukee farm lands. Over the years he was often found making fond memories with Matt Moser, who was a great encouragement to Bill during his battle with cancer.
Bill loved going on road trips with Karren, listening to music and enjoying the simple joys together. He was a simple, pleasant man of few words who loved spending time with family and friends over a bonfire and good music.
Bill is survived by many who shared life with him: his wife Karren and children, Justin Gimbel (Candice) and Jessica (JJ) Feldmann; daughter, Sadie Edlbeck; son, Nathanael (Dawn) Edlbeck and daughter Jacqueline (Rex) Rosner. This blended family brought Bill a total of 13 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren, all in whom he found much joy. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters: Dale (Bonnie) Edlbeck, Mary Jo "Twiggy" (Warden) Parmenter, Jeannie (Mark) Taylor, Pat (Michelle) Edlbeck and Lori (Griz) Taylor.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father.
Visitation will be on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at Roubal Funeral Home from 10 am until the time of his funeral service at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations are preferred. Roubal Funeral Home of Wausaukee is assisting Bill's family.
Bill's family would like to thank friends and the surrounding community for their support shown throughout Bill's fight with cancer.
