William John “Coot” Woller, 53, of Rib Mountain, passed away at his home
unexpectedly on Friday, November 16, 2012. Born to Wally and Norma (Breit)
Woller on February 6, 1959, in Wausau, Coot lived in this area all of his
life. He was a graduate of Wausau West High School. He was well known as an
auto body specialist and for his dedication to his 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS.
Coot was meticulous; he always took pride in maintaining his home and
property. He will be remembered as a person who valued his family and truly
cared about people, always the first to lend a hand when someone was in
need. Family was most important. In his free time he enjoyed snowmobiling,
hunting, and fishing. He hunted mule deer in Utah, wild boar in Texas, and
fished for Salmon on Lake Michigan. Many of his best times were spent at the
family cabin on Birch Lake in Harshaw.
Coot is survived by his children, Nathan Woller of Madison and Brianna
Woller of Madison; fiancée, Connie Roeper of Rib Mountain, her children, Amy
(Mpho) and Brent (Kari), and her grandchildren, Emma and Blake; brothers,
Dale Woller of Harshaw and Donald (Sue) Woller of Weston; sisters, Sandy
(Craig) Sorenson of Wausau, Ginny (Ron) Edwards of Wausau, and Nancy (Ken)
Kegler of San Luis de la Paz, Mexico; friend, Arvin Gumz of Rib Mountain;
uncle, Arnold Breit of Weston; aunt, Dixie Woller of Rib Mountain; many
nieces and nephews; and numerous friends and relatives.
He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Gerald.
A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 21,
2012, at St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Rib Mountain. Family and friends may
call beginning at 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 20, 2012,
