William Howard Stoffregen

William Harold Stoffregen, 93, of Sheboygan Falls, entered Eternal Life on Friday, January 19, 2024, at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice.

Bill was born on November 15, 1930, to Harold and Eleanor (Ramer) Stoffregen. He graduated from Sheboygan Central High School in 1949.
In his youth, he enjoyed racing pigeons and playing sports. 

On May 21, 1952, he was united in marriage to Gertrude Daane in Sheboygan Falls.

Bill was a lifetime member of the First Reformed Church in Sheboygan Falls and served as elder, deacon, chair of the deacons, and on the Missionary Committee. 

Bill enjoyed raising and showing Arabian horses for many years. He enjoyed the simple things, a good meal, chocolate, baking holiday treats, working in his large gardens, and fishing with Gert. After retirement, Bill and Gert enjoyed going on many road trips together. Bill looked forward to the annual deer hunt with the boys. He loved family and holiday gatherings and spending time with the grandchildren and attending their sporting and musical events.
