Bill is survived by his loving wife Liz; his daughter Christina Bahe (Dwayne) and granddaughter Camryn of West Des Moines, Iowa; his daughter Amanda Thompson (Tony) and grandson Nolan and granddaughters Maren and Layla of Elkhart, Iowa; his sister Cecilia “Sis” Staffey (Phillip) of Saint Charles, Illinois; his sister Patricia “Patt” Tesinsky of Phoenix, Arizona; nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews; as well as many friends and loved ones who he considered to be his family.
