William G. "Bill" Watermolen, 57, of De Pere passed away at home Thursday, June 21, 2012 of natural causes. He was born on March 21, 1955 in Green Bay to Clayton and LaVerne (VanEss) Haum.

He married Linda Holder on March 1, 1975 at St. Agnes Church in Green Bay.
Bill retired from Wisconsin Public Service in December 2010 after over 30 years of service. Bill enjoyed collecting farm implements and antiques. He was an avid horseman and loved animals of all kinds, especially his favorite companions Boomer and Dexter. Bill and Linda stabled horses and he could always be found hard at work taking care of them. Bill was a soft spoken, independent soul who let his actions do his talking.
