Not sure what to say?

Bill was instrumental in getting me involved at Curative Connections. He was a wonderful advocate for people with disabilities and a great spokesman for the agency he founded and led so admirably for man years. Ron Niesing

Dr Nystrom was a great man who had an ability to make everyone feel respected and loved. Incredibly kind and generous. Made us smile every time we saw him. One of the great ones and he will be missed.

John Gard and Cate Zeuske

How lucky to have Dr. Nystrom as my first boss back in the day when Curative Workshop had four separate locations spread over the face of Green Bay. All great teachers and mentors have simple yet profound messages to teach. Dr. Nystrom encouraged us to cultivate the following:
be humble, be a good steward of resources, and do what you can to relieve the suffering of others.
I try to keep those thoughts in mind to this day as I continue my rehabilitation practice.

We have lost a great community leader that had a tremendous sense of humor. I will miss those positive and memorable conversations. My sympathy to his family. Sen. Robert Cowles

My condolences to the family of Dr. Nystrom. For years he came to the abbey to serve the foot care of the elderly priests at St. Norbert Abbey who could not come to him. He had a great sense of service and kindness and was a great conversationalist. May he rest in peace.

A very good person , neighbor, friend. We will miss his dry sense of humor. Ed and Blondie Hermans

Thank you for your service to our country. May you rest in peace.

Bill was that rare person in life whose impact on others was significant and positive. I and others at Curative Connections will remember Bill as a fierce advocate for people disabilities, older adults, people with dementia, those with brain injuries, and other vulnerable people. His Curative Connections legacy endures. --Steve McCarthy

Margaret and family, may we express our sincere sympathy for your loss. Bill was a friend that we got to know when Mary Lou was running for the state legislature. He was a good adviser and friend and always was a true friend. We enjoyed our shared thoughts and experiences with him. Along with the family loosing a wonderful man the community suffers that same sense of loss. Know that time and with God's help the pain of his loss will ease.
