Bill was born on November 30, 1928 in Westfield, WI the son of William and Mildred (Hayes) Reichhoff. He grew up on the family farm and after finishing his schooling, he married Agnes Lietzau on April 15, 1950. God blessed their union with 5 children, Bill, Fred, Jeff, Jeanne, and Jim. Bill worked as a carpenter for the majority of his working career. He worked both as a rough carpenter and skilled finish carpenter and he took great pride in his work and doing things the right way. One of Bill’s defining qualities was his work ethic and he made sure to instill this quality in his children. In addition to his career as a carpenter, Bill also farmed for the majority of his life. He grew up on his family farm and then he and Agnes purchased a farm in Eagle early in their marriage. Bill and Agnes raised cattle and also grew crops to sell and can and they would remain on the farm for many years together and raise their family there. For leisure, Bill enjoyed being outdoors, especially on the water fishing. Bill and Agnes were married for over 59 years until her passing in 2009. After Agnes passed, Bill later married Ellen Ahlstrom and the two would go on to enjoy 12 years of marriage together. Bill was a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather and will be remembered by those he leaves behind.
