William Froehlich Obituary
William "Bill" Froehlich

Bill Froehlich passed away after a short illness on Wednesday, February 15, 2017, one day after his 80th birthday, in Las Vegas, NV, where he'd lived for the past six years. Born in Indiana on February 14, 1937, Bill was raised and lived in the South Bay for many years.

At the time of his retirement, Bill was a Senior Building Inspector for the City of Los Angeles. He previously worked for the City of Los Angeles Department of Water & Power and was General Superintendent for the engineering firm, Ziebarth & Alper, overseeing various projects at the Hyperion Wastewater Treatment Plant in El Segundo, California.

Bill was an active member of United Steamfitters Local Union #250 for more than sixty years. For many years, Bill was an Instructor for the Apprentice Training Program at the Apprentice & Journeyman Training Trust Fund of Southern California Plumbing & Piping Training Center, and was an Instructor for the Steamfitter Journeyman P.I.P.E. Certification. Bill served in the United States Army from 1956 to 1958.

Bill is survived by his spouse, Dale; his sister, Doris; brother-in-law, Louis; son, Tom; daughters, Judi and Patty; son-in-law, Jimmy; grandsons, J.T. and D.J.; J.T.'s wife, Andrea, and Joseph "Champ", his great grandson, as well as many nieces, nephews, and close friends.

Bill indulged in the art of telling engaging stories of his fascinating friends and family. He had the ability to bring these stories to life. He was quick to laugh, and was the Pied Piper of his group - wherever he proposed they go, they gladly followed - racking up wonderful adventures and memories in exotic locations. Bill gave freely of his time over the years and was a mentor and teacher to many. He will be greatly missed by his loved ones and friends.

Graveside services will be held on March 20 at 11:00 a.m. at Green Hills Memorial Cemetery in Rancho Palos Verdes. An intimate celebration of Bill's life for family and close friends will follow the service. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
