William `Bill` H. Taylor , Age 85

July 27, 1934 --January 19, 2020

William Bill H. Taylor, age 85, passed away on Sunday January 19, 2020.

Bill was born at home in Chicago on July, 27 1934 to John Edgar Taylor and Grace Helen (Johncock) Taylor. Bill and his parents moved to Peru, Indiana when he was 12. They moved back to Chicago when Bill was 17. He proudly served his country in the Army in the 532nd armor engineers from 1957 until 1959, serving in Italy. He worked most of his life as a sheet metal man in the heating and air conditioning business. He also worked for Goodyear and Anheuser-Busch.

He married the love of his life, Judith Ann (Bourque) Pickler in 1983. Together they purchased their farmette in Rock Springs, Wisconsin. After completing most of the restorations on the over 100-year-old farm house by themselves, they moved there in 1987. It was their little piece of heaven that they called Taylors Achers. Achers for all of the aches and pains they had on all of the work that they did in the restoration.

After retirement, Bill turned the barn into his man cave and spent many hours doing woodworking and making many different kinds of bird houses. He was a man of many talents and there wasnt any job that he couldnt do.

He is survived by his wife Judy, daughter Pamela Marie (Anthony III) DeSalvo, grandson Anthony IV, brother-in-law Robert Bourque, four sisters-in-law; Dori Bobus, Gail (Art) Ebeling, Debra Kennedy (Bill Kridler) and Suzette (Ray) Voyda, and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, John (Martha) Taylor, two sisters and three brothers-in-law, Dorothy (Eddie) Adamovich, Beverly (Roy) Link, Charles Bobus, and sister-in-law Judy Bourque.

Bill will be missed by his family and friends as well as all of the people that he waved to that drove by his home.

The family would like to thank the staff at St. Clare Meadows for their compassion and excellent care of Bill the last four months of his life.

As per Bills wishes, there will be no formal service. The Redlin Funeral Home is assisting the family.
