Memories of Hope

William Gerseth

September 19, 1963 — February 18, 2013

 

Born William Vincent Gerseth in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on September 19, 1963. Bill is survived by a sister, Lori, father, Gene, and mother, Vicki.

As a child, Bill liked his tractor, his go-cart, his rider lawn mower and anything that could take him for a ride. As he grew up he loved to sing along with his music and loved to go to church and knew every song on the radio from the oldies up to now including the singer.

He always had his calculator with him at all times in case he needed to count his money.

He liked cars and baseball caps. He liked garage sales and shopping and going out for breakfast.

He was friendly and truly loved people and just accepted everyone he met. He liked to shake hands and give hugs. He was greatly loved by his family and will be so very missed.

RIP William Gerseth

We love you Always


Words from his fellow peers and his staff:

William Gerseth has touched us all. He is a true angel. He has touched everyone who has come in his path, with his smile and his lovely sense of humor. William loved to just be known and for people to say hello and shake his hand. He was a man who knew his oldies. I know you are singing and dancing in heaven. RIP William Gerseth. We send you all of our love, till we meet again our friend.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, Trust in me, in my father’s house are many rooms; if I go prepare a place for you I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” -John 14:1-4 NIV

Dear Aunt Vicki, Uncle Gene, and Lori,

I want to share how very special having Billy in our family was to me. We were so lucky to have him as a part of our lives. Growing up, he was more than just our cousin, he was our friend. He made us laugh, and has given us so many special memories.

I know February 18th was such a special day in heaven. The day our Father in Heaven called him home, took him in his arms, and healed him forever. I can only imagine how happy Grandma and Grandpa were to have him!

Thank you for being such good parents and taking such good care of him while he was on this earth. You are truly special people and an inspiration to many.

I love you both so much, and am praying for your family.

Love, Tracy
