Wilfred Rule Iii Obituary
Rule III, Wilfred

Wilfred "Bill" Rule, III, 48, of Wausau passed away unexpectedly on February 8, 2016. He was born to Wilfred and Donna (Larsen) Rule, II on June 24, 1967 in Appleton, Wisconsin. He is survived by his mother Donna Rule, sister Merre (Terry) Woznicki, nephew Matthew Mullen, niece Renee Mullen, his pride and joy, great-niece Grace Mullen, Aunt Dee (Glenn ) Crass, Aunt Carol (Roger) Dales, many cousins and his friend, Amy Brown. He is preceded in death by his father, Wilfred Rule, II, his grandparents, his Aunt Kathie Larsen and great-nephew Jacob Mullen.

Bill was known for his never-ending sense of humor. He always saw the positive side of everything, which was one of his greatest attributes. He was a caring and thoughtful man who was always there when you needed him. His willingness to help others continues even after his death, as he was proudly an organ donor, potentially helping save another person's life.

Bill was very passionate about the military. He proudly served his country in the United States Navy and reported to the U.S.S. Pyro. He was actively involved with his parents' many rental properties for several years. After his father's death in 2015, he took over as property manager.

He took great pride in watching out for his mother, who he adored. He loved sports from the college level to the pros and the Green Bay Packers being a favorite along with the Wisconsin Badgers. He enjoyed gardening, but most of all he enjoyed spending time with his loving friends and family.
