William “Bill” H. Borchert


William “Bill” Harold Borchert, 83, passed away Monday, May 30, 2022.

Bill was born April 25, 1939, in Onalaska, to Harold and Maida (Nauman) Borchert. On October 31, 1987, he married Judith M. Sobotta.

As Retiree-of-the-Year, Bill was very proud of his 55 years as an Operating Engineer. His passion was spending time with Judy at their Great River Harbor campground, making long-lasting friends over 23 years. He was an avid Packers, Brewers, Badgers and Bucks fan. In the winter time, he enjoyed picking out hickory nuts for Judy to use in her baking.

Bill is survived by Judy, his wife of almost 35 years; his children: Laurie, Bill, Jo, Beth and Mark; and Judy’s children: Randy, Sue, Laurie, Dan and Amy; 20 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Edith; and brother-in-law, George Exley.

A special thank you to my sister in-law, Kim, for her support and to the doctors and nurses who became friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to family wishes. He will be missed beyond what words can express.

Services were held Monday, June 6, 2022, at Christ Lutheran Church in Arcadia. Visitation was from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., followed by the service at 1:00 p.m., with burial following at Glencoe Lutheran Cemetery. A luncheon was held following the burial at the Church.
