William H. (Bill) Droege (87) passed away September 27th at his home in Cottage Grove. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, acquiring strong values that he passed on to his children. Do an honest day's work, have a firm handshake that's as good as your word, help those in need, and if something is worth doing, do it right the first time. Bill was an avid fisherman and a pioneer in commercial Christmas tree farming, a profession in which he made countless friends and subjected many of them to the rigors of tree harvests. Bill is survived by his wife of 46 years, Cleo, children, Matt (Marla), Kelly (Sofie), Robin and Amy, Tod, Rick and Lisa, 8 grands and 2 great grands. An open-house celebration of Bill's life: Nov. 18 from 1 to 4 pm at the Droege home in Cottage Grove. Please find service details at smithlundmills.com
