Bill Wittenbrook Bill Wittenbrook, aged 70, was a wonderful husband and father who loved corny jokes. He was born September 14, 1942 to Dr. John Wittenbrook and Gilda Falcone Wittenbrook. He grew up in Cleveland, Ohio with eight brothers and sisters: Sue, Dick, Fred, Pam, Jim, Marcia, Larry, and Joe. As a young man, he attended the University of Notre Dame, where he received a Bachelors of Science. He went on to earn a Masters of Computer Science at the University of Binghamton. He married Linda in September 1965 and they had almost 48 wonderful years together. He had a long career at IBM in computer, analysis, and information systems which took Bill and Linda to Binghamton, New York; to Boca Raton, Florida; and to Austin, Texas, where they settled for nearly 40 years. For the last eight years of his career he worked for the Texas Department of Health. Bill and Linda have three children Brian, Greg, and Sara, who married Pam, Wendy, and Steven, respectively, who gave them six grandchildren: Jack, Seth, Mattie, Nora, Samantha, and Harriet.
