This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, William Van Vleet, 88, born on December 4, 1924 and passed away on January 24, 2013. We will remember him forever.
"I loved you Bill and thanks for your mentoring me for so many years.
"Many years, reflections of a summer cottage, a wife of petit stature, a family of little girls at that time. The good looking attorney from Rockford, his strength always in view and the years flew away while I remember over and over the waves at Silver Lake, the beach, the skiing and your sister Ronnie. Bill, she is my friend forever. With sympathy, Janie Felker Jasin"
"I will always remember the elegance and grace Bill exuded when he walked into a room. His unique style was as much a part of him as his quick smile and his gracious ways. Bill, thank you for your influence in my life and the legacy you shared with all of us. I admire the values and the love you instilled in your family. The world is a grander place because of you. I miss you....."
"I am very sorry that I was unable to attend today’s Mass for Bill. I had the highest regard for him as a person, as well as a fellow attorney. I have not met very many people who were so delightful to be with.
Attorney Tom Killoren"
"I'm so sorry for your loss, Mark and the rest of your family.I will keep you all in my thoughts as you go through this difficult time."
"Dear Lyn, Dick and I think of both of you so fondly and so often. I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was such a fine gentleman. We will always treasure the times we spent with both of you. margret."
"Bill was a good lawyer and a great friend. He was very protective of Pioneer Life. I remember the first time Peter Nauert asked me to look over a litigation file, Bill called me into his office, went over the case and when it came time to turn the file over, he passed it to me, but held on. . . then finally let go . . . . I always have fond memories of our time together."
I was sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you are still doing well? It doesn't seem possible how quickly time has flown. I still treasure my Holy Family memories and friends. Love to all of you!
"Lyn and Family,
Bill was my boss at Pioneer for 8 years. He was a good lawyer, mentor, and friend. We worked hard but had some fun, too. Most of all, he was a good man. I remember him fondly. Brent"
"Thinking of you with love today. Lyn, you and Bill meant so much to my parents, Rose and Bob Flood. Your friendship was a support as well as a celebration of laughter and good times. Hope you are holding the good memories close to your heart. XOXO Carol and Jack"
"Our kids grew up together at Holy Family School and we also enjoyed CFM with Lyn and Bill. May he be at rest with our Lord. Our sympathy goes to Lyn.
May all your precious memories alleviate the loss you
have experienced. Wishing you all the blessings and comfort you
need during these next difficult days of mourning and loss."
"Such a loving and generous man who was so proud of his family. Bill and Lyn always treated us like we were part of their family and my kids as if they were their grandkids. The world has lost a great man who has left quite a legacy with such a beautiful family. We love you and miss you. I will think of you every time I sail on your windsurfer!"
"I am so glad that I have become part of a loving and caring family. Papa has always been so kind. I remember the first time he met Tyler and Ian and how he played "jail" with them! They still talk about it and that was years ago! Papa was such a generous and wonderful man. I'm so glad I was able to know him and be part of his wonderful family! You will be so missed, Papa!"
