William R. Dockstader Fowlerville William Dockstader, "Doc", of Fowlerville, broke our hearts by leaving us on January 26, 2013 at the age of 74. He is survived by his children, Chris, Nadine and Brett Dockstader, his girlfriend Linda Todd Brown, brother, Jack (Doug) Cavanaugh, 7 stepchildren and several grand children. He was preceded in death by his wife Daisy, brother, Dick Dockstader, sisters Jacqueline Russell and Sandy Goedert. After his graduation from Webberville High School, he began his civic duty by joining the National Guards. He then was Plant Manager at Utilex/Hoover Ball & Bearing/Stanley Tool in Fowlerville and also helped manage Abe's Auto Glass & Rental in Howell, Mi. He served for 20 years as a volunteer fireman for the Leroy Township Fire Department in Webberville and was very passionate about his membership in the Moose Lodge, Fraternal Order of the Eagles and the National Rifle Association. His favorite pastimes were hunting, snowmobiling and motorcycling at his cabin in Houghton Lake. You were always welcome to drop in and stay whenever you wanted. You could often find William on the dance floor on any given night of the week. Sometimes he found this more essential than eating or sleeping. Friends and family are invited to Gorsline Runciman Funeral Home in Williamston for visitation at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 30th with funeral services at 1:00 p.m. and the committal service following at Eastlawn Cemetery in Okemos, MI. A meal will be provided by the Williamston Fraternal Order of Eagles in Williamston after the committal service. The family will be honored by your presence with stories of their father. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family at www.grwilliamston.com
