MCFARLAND/STOUGHTON—William “Bill” W. Eversoll peacefully joined his Lord on June 11, 2019 at home surrounded by family. Bill was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in September 2016 and fought hard against it for a few years. Bill was born on January 29, 1937 in Milwaukee, Wis. to the late William W. and Florence (Stuer) Eversoll. Bill married his “true love”, Loanne Holub, on February 1, 1958 and was married 48 years until Loanne’s death from cancer on January 8, 2006. They were best friends and enjoyed traveling together, especially their trips to Hawaii, northern Wisconsin and the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota.
Bill worked for Thom McAn Shoes for 25 years and then worked another 25 years for Leath Furniture until he retired. In his early years, Bill served in the Air National Guard. Bill was a very loving, supportive and devoted father. He was a kind, humble, caring, hardworking and giving Christian man. Bill was a jokester and enjoyed making people laugh many times hoping for a humorous reaction. After his wife passed, Bill adopted his pride and joy, Evie, short for Evelyn. He enjoyed spending time with Evie at home and at the dog park. Bill loved spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed volunteering at River Food Pantry, Covenant Lutheran Church and Skaalen Nursing Home. Bill also enjoyed spending time with his “lady friend” Barb volunteering, seeing movies and performing jokes together. Bill was a dog lover, enjoyed feeding the birds, music and watching sports, especially the Brewers and Packers.
Bill is survived by his four children, Deb Weisensel (Mark), Patti Opie (Kurt), Michael Eversoll (Michelle) and Jeff Eversoll. In addition, he’s survived by nine grandchildren Tim and Ryan Halverson, Jeff and Matt Opie, Stephen, Marques and Kaitlynn Eversoll, and Jackson and Parker Eversoll; two grandchildren by marriage, Reece and Mica; and seven great-grandchildren Bryson, Anna, Lyle, Ira, Renner, Quintin; and Max and two “adopted” grandchildren Alexia and Meisha.
