Stabnow, William B. "Bill" (28 JAN 1930 – 23 FEB 2016)

William B. "Bill” Stabnow, 86, Willard, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016. A memorial service was held at 11 a.m., on Monday, Feb. 29, at Cuddie Funeral Home in Greenwood. Rev. Mark Gungor officiated. Burial of cremains followed in the Greenwood City Cemetery.

William Bernard Stabnow was born on Jan. 28, 1930, at the family home in Greenwood, to Lila Mae (nee Syth) and Carl Fred Stabnow. Bill lived his entire life in Greenwood. After leaving high school, he was inducted into the U.S. Army on Feb. 27, 1951, and was deployed to Korea, serving until his honorable discharge on Nov. 26, 1952. Bill returned to his home in Greenwood, where he was employed as an electrician by Frank Peroshek, and worked for Frank until retiring in 1992. Bill loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. Virtually every possible day of his adult life, Bill could be found in the woods or on the water. He was a founder of the Black River Bowman’s Club and a member for many years. He was also a long-time member of Greenwood American Legion. He was always known as a consummate jokester and could always find a way to tell a joke and get a laugh. Of those who knew him, few escaped his penchant for pranks and humor.

Bill is survived by his long-time companion, Tootie Vollrath, Willard; one sister, Ruby (Wilber) Adams, Greenwood; one daughter, Deborah (Mark) Gungor, Green Bay: one son, Randy (Lynn) Stabnow, Greenwood: four grandchildren: Leslie (Ross) Skorzewski, Phillip (Kirsty) Gungor, Amber Stabnow and Sarah (Josh) Reit; 10 great-grandchildren: Parker Gungor, Keyan Skorzewski, Monty Gungor, Josh Gadke, Elliot Gungor, Mya Skorzewski, Carter Gadke, Jace Gadke, Scarlet Gungor and Brynn Reit; and three nieces: Carol (Floyd) Struensee, Janice (Bob) Clark, and Diane (Wayne) Genteman.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
