William L. Rather

December 5, 1962 — February 10, 2024

William L. Rather, age 61, of Fond du Lac, died Saturday, February 10, 2024, at Hospice Home of Hope. He was born on December 5, 1962, in Fond du Lac, the son of Howard A. and Dorothy A. (Diedrich) Rather. Bill was a graduate of LP Goodrich High School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Bill had several careers including in Engineering and Tax Preparation.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by brothers, Howard H. (Penny) Rather of Tennessee, Jerome (Marsha) Rather of Madison, and sisters, Betty of Sheboygan Falls, WI, and Jan of Sheboygan, WI.


Mom always liked Bill best!
