William (Bill) Lee Nussbaum, 74, of Appleton, WI, died on March 5, 2018. Bill was born in Appleton to Agatha and Raymond Nussbaum on October 30, 1943. He graduated from Kaukauna High School in 1962 and served in the U.S. Army. After meeting on a blind date, he married Julie Shipley on September 16, 1967. He worked in the drywall business for over 30 years. Bill was usually found outside working in his yard or garden. He especially liked watching for eagles and pelicans and vacationing in Wisconsin’s north woods. Bill was a very social person who made everyone feel welcome and was known as the “mayor” of his street by many neighbors. He had a fun-loving personality who made people laugh. Family and friends knew they could always count on him to bring life to any gathering. He was a sports enthusiast and an avid Packers and Badgers fan. Bill is survived by his wife of 50 years, Julie; his daughters, Leigh (Brian) Redfield and Amanda (Erin) Kendall and granddaughter, Eliot Ann Kendall; son-in-law, Thomas Stout, grandsons, Owen and Mason Stout, and granddaughter, Jensen Stout; his sisters, Judy Savard and Janice Giallourakis; brother, Mark (Debbie) Nussbaum; sister-in-law, Kay Nussbaum; his brother-in-law, John (Jennifer) Shipley; many nieces and nephews who will always fondly remember “Uncle Bill”; and his dear friends, Roy and Sally Van Epern. Bill was preceded in death by his daughter, Tricia (Nussbaum) Stout; parents, Raymond (Agatha) Nussbaum; brother, Roger; brothers-in-law, Homer Savard and Michael Giallourakis; and parents-in-law, John (Janet) Shipley. According to Bill’s wishes, no memorial service will be held.
