William K. Lavrenz
K. “Bill” Lavrenz, 63, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 7, 2019, at his
home in Taycheedah. He was born in West Bend on Friday, October 21, 1955 to
Kenneth and Mary (Wagner) Lavrenz. Bill was a 1973 graduate of Waupun High
School. On Saturday, June 18, 1977, he married Debbie Emanuel in Fond du
and Debbie raised four amazing sons together during their marriage, and the
lessons Bill passed on to them will always be remembered. Though he worked
hard, side-by-side with his wife during his career as a jeweler, he also found
ways to relax and enjoy his life. Bill was great at shooting pool and made sure
each of his sons learned from his talent; complete with their own personalized
cues. Throughout most of his life, Bill was best known for spending his spare
time out on the boat with his brothers and friends, as he was an avid fishing
enthusiast. He was quick to offer a smile and a friendly conversation: his
kindness will be missed by all who had the honor of knowing him.
