Meet Bill Wockner
Bill Wockner lived a life of hard work and hearty friendships. He cared deeply for the people around him, and he always had a soft heart for those who needed a lift or a helping hand. Bill built himself up from his bootstraps, and now he has left a legacy to support the wellbeing of the community he loved.
