William GILSDORF Obituary
GILSDORF, William James William James Gilsdorf, known to friends as Bill, has passed away peacefully at the age of 79 on January 24th, 2018. Bill served honorably in the US Army and was a graduate of the Ohio State University. He enjoyed a career in the packaging industry in sales and sales management with the Owens Illinois firm. He is survived by his brother John Gilsdorf and wife Judith in Gainesville, GA. He will be forever remembered by his eldest son William, Jr. and wife Gretchen in Vail, CO; his son Michael, wife Eva, and grandson Otto in Vienna, Austria; and Mary Hatfield mother of William, Jr and Michael. Bill was an avid sailor, racing his large sailboats on Lake Michigan and Lake Lanier, and he enjoyed traveling the world in his retirement years with his longtime friend and companion Karin Yost. While the warmth of his company will be missed by many, Bill will always be remembered as a good father, friend, and gentleman. Arrangements by Northside Chapel Funeral Directors and Crematory.
