He farmed south of Willey while also employed at Moorhouse Ready Mix, and Farmland Foods. Willie retired after 30 years of employment for EBI/RJ Trausch Industries. During this time he enjoyed traveling around the United States removing used supermarket equipment. Willie was married to Darlene Geary; to this union was a son Jeff. He later married Nancy Gehling. Willie loved the outdoors and taking care of his lawn and watching sports with his family. After retirement his winters were spent traveling to Arizona and tending his orange trees. Willie was fond of playing cards games and relaxing with ice cream treats with grandchildren. Everyone who met Willie was drawn to his funny sense of humor and his ability to always give to others.
