William G. Schliep Jr., 82, passed away peacefully on Jan. 24, 2020.
Loving husband of 61 years to Marie (née Mauter); devoted father of Linda Eileen and the late William Charles (Lori Schliep-Sturm); proud grand­father of Emilie, Caroline, Lauren and Logan.
The legacy of Bill’s love for Three Lakes, Wis., began before he was born. His great-grandparents owned The Blue Ribbon Resort on Island Lake in the 1920s.
Bill loved everything about Three Lakes. During the summers, he enjoyed fishing and boating on the Chain of Lakes, hiking in the Nicolet Forest, socializing at the Community Garden, volunteering as a docent at the Historical Society, and worshiping at Chapel in the Pines.
Every year, he looked forward to attending the Fourth of July parade and fireworks with his grandchildren.
