William Willer Obituary

William (Bill) Willer, 71, of Moville, Iowa, died Sunday, January 7, 2024 at his home surrounded by his loved ones.

Sayonkon officiating.

William “Bill” Willer was born March 5, 1952 in LeMars, Iowa, the son of Edward and Bonidel (Nailor) Kahl.  After his father’s death as an infant, he was raised by his parents, Darrell and Bonidel Willer on a farm in Moville, Iowa.  He graduated from Woodbury Central High School in 1970.

Bill married the love of his life, Lori McElrath on June 12, 1976 in Moville, Iowa.  He was a lifelong mechanic and worked for several dealerships before eventually owning his own shop, Morningside Service Center in Sioux City.

Bill and Lori resided in Moville where they raised their two children, Lindy and Chad.  Bill enjoyed the outdoors and nature, especially the trees and bald eagles as well as other birds and gardening. He also enjoyed NASCAR races and was able to attend several of them in Kansas City.  He was a lifelong fan of the LA Rams.  Camping in Yankton, SD with his family was probably his favorite pastime.

Bill is survived by his wife, Lori Willer of Moville; their children, Lindy (Chad) Schweitzberger of Council Bluffs, IA, Chad (Michelle) Willer of Moville, IA; five grandchildren, Brady, Laney, and Ean Schweitzberger and Rylen and Myles Willer; and one sister, Kelly (Angel) Willer of Maryland.
