THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Issue Date: December 20, 2017
William "Bill" Perry, 67, of Wausaukee, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday Dec. 12, 2017 at his home.
Born Aug. 19, 1950 in Daggett, Mi., to the late William and Ann (Boshan) Perry, he passed away while doing what he loved, getting ready to put steaks on the grill.
They were married in 1973 and he convinced her to move up north. Eight years later, their daughter was born and 32 years ago they moved to the country to a house with 40 acres.
He loved the view of the Wausaukee River out his picture window . He spent hours constructing a squirrel proof bird feeder and laughed when he outsmarted the squirrel.
He enjoyed talking with anyone, hunting and fishing, but was most proud of becoming a grandfather this year and loved traveling to Madison to visit him. He will be greatly missed by family and those who knew him in the town he called home.
He is survived by his wife, Lucy; a daughter, Melissa (Randy) Versnik of Oregon; a grandson, Jordan Vincent Versnik; a sister, Barbara (Roger) McClellan; a sister-in-law, Diane (Edward) McAlpine and three nephews, Jason and Jeremy McAlpine and Ron (Amy) McClellan.
Family and friends called at Roubal Funeral Home in Wausaukee on Sunday Dec. 17 from 1 p.m. until time of the funeral service at 4 p.m., with Pastor Jonathon Zietlow officiating.
