William is survived by his wife of sixty-six years, Sharon Hutchens Schall; his children, Cory (Shelly), Wendy (Jay), Warren (Tina) and Kevin (Linda); grandchildren, Emily, Lisa, Delcee, Charles, Josh, Adam, Holly, Larissa, Hillary and Blakee; great grandchildren, Chandler, Reed Walker, Kylee and Austin; one sister, Mary Lou; one brother Roger and brother-in-laws, Danny and Carl.

We can not thank Will and Gina Marks enough for all their help.with Dear and all the yard work.  Thanks to all who called, texted, kept up with us on Facebook.  Dear was surely loved.  You struggled, we struggled since February 26, we will get through.  We Love you Dear! Cheers!
