Memories Timeline


  1. Will and Joe played many many hours in our yard and Will’s house and God only knows where else in between house. Will was fun to have around and will be missed by all!

    Our sympathy and Prayers to the family….
    The Riley’s…

  2. I have many memories with Will as a kid when our parents would hang out. I remember playing air hockey in the basement a lot! Even after high school when I would run into Will, he could always make me laugh with some stupid joke. I saw him through many stages of life and the one that sticks out the most was after Honorae was born. I ran into him at ribfest. He was so proud to be a father! His eyes beemed with joy introducing me to her. He truly was a genuine person and will be missed by many. My heart goes out to you Pam, Rick, Stacey, and Julie. Prayers that you have strength to get through this hard time.

  3. So sorry to hear the news of Will’s passing. Prayers to his family and all our friends that loved him. Rest Easy Will . 💔

  4. I’ve known Will for nearly 32 years of his 40 years. I remember him growing up across the street and tossing a ball with him as a kid. He had a caring heart and kind spirit. I’ve prayed for him many times over the years as I know life brought him many challenges. He will be missed greatly by his kids and mom and dad Rick and Pam as well as his many neighbors who cared for him and loved him. May God give comfort and understanding to his family and be with them as they grieve but remember his caring spirit. Much kove. Teresa

  5. Will,

  6. Scott and I are out of town and will not be able to be there for Will’s funeral. Please know Rick and Pam, Stacey and Julie that you are in our prayers, as Will has been over the past 30+ years. Will is finally at peace, may he rest there in Gods loving arms and may you all feel a bit of peace as well. 🙏❤️🙏 Thinking of you all!

  7. So sorry to hear about Will’s passing! I will not forget his smile and how polite he was when playing at our house. 🙏🙏 for peace!

  8. Hugs and tears for this tragic loss of Will. Receive the sustaining love and comfort ofThe Holy Spirit as you grieve this deep loss.

  9. I was one of Wills uncles and used to baby sit him when he was young. We always had so much fun playing ball in the back yard. Will had such an incredible personality, we will all miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pam, Rick and the entire family.

    He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

  10. I’ve known Will since seventh grade. He was always really nice and had a special wit and humor about him, we had a lot of fun.

    We were in the “bad kid” group at Confirmation together. We used to smoke cigs and shoot the shit together behind Bjornson’s before the sessions.

    I saw him not long ago just randomly on 8th Street near Island Park and he looked good, sounded good.

    Sad to see him go. RIP, brother.

  11. The Burchill Family are in our thoughts & prayers. We are so sorry to hear that Will has passed. . May he rest in eternal peace & may God be with all of you in the days ahead to give you comfort & guidance.

  12. Will and I first became friends when we were both in karate when we were maybe 12 years old, stayed friends through “Wings” at Hope Lutheran Church, and have always been friends ever since. He was always a “good kid “

  13. I am writing on behalf of my boys jamie Justin and Jeremy you were always a good kid and enjoyed the times you spent at our house you will never be forgotten from any of us especially Jeremy! You and my son were really super close and he thought you as a brother to all my boys Will we will m8ss you dearly rest In peace !

  14. I’ve known will since we where in Jr high at Ben Franklin. He always had a happy spirit to him I seen him a few times throughout the years and even a few times during some of his struggles. I sat with him and talked with him a few times as I’ve had enough of my own struggles but thankfully came out the other side. He always had a good heart and was a loyal friend. He will be missed. My heart and prayers go out to his family and children. Rest peacefully old friend
