There will never be words to express the sorrow we feel at losing our dad so early in our lives. We will always miss you and love you Daddy!

This website was created for William (Billy) Kempf, who went home to be with God on August 5, 2010.  Billy is survived by his wife of 16 years, Lynne and their two children Breezi 14, and Brandon 13.  He is also survived by his father William (Duke) Kempf Sr. (Jaqui) his mother Bonnie Damario (Bob) his sister Mary Knaub (Steve) his brothers Thomas Kempf (Kim) Steven Cocci and his little sister Elizabeth Self (Kyle) and their children.  Billy was an entreprenuer, always trying new ventures.  He loved hanging out with Brandon often tinkering on their mower or car, or just grabbing a pole to fish for a while.  He loved spending daddy/daughter time with Breezi.  He loved music, especially the Beatles.  He was a movie buff and loved to spend time visiting yard sales to add to his growing collection.  His death will leave a hole in the family and he will be missed greatly.  

 

FUNERAL SERVICE:

The Memorial Service for Billy will be held at:

1:00 pm on August 11, 2010 at Church @ The Springs 5424 SE 58th Ave. (Baseline Rd) Ocala, Florida 34480
