William R. Slattery
William R. Slattery, age 77, passed away peacefully at home while surrounded by loving family on June 6th 2017, after a very brief illness.
Bill was born to William and Eleanor Slattery in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.
He married the love of his life, Judy, August 11th, 1962. Their honeymoon was a very adventurous drive to the Colorado Mountains, landing in Glenwood Springs. Glenwood Springs would be where they began their business, Modern Cabinet Shop, which they took great pride in running for over 50 years.
Bill was an Army veteran, a member of the Kiwanis Club, Elk’s Club, and a Fourth Degree Grand Knight in the Knights of Columbus. He was also a former member of the Jaycee’s.
Bill was known by many as an avid sheep hunter. Having obtained the Grand Slam of North America, he went on to achieve the World Super Slam. Through his travels and love of humanitarian ways, he brought smiles to many families and villages throughout the world.
His all-around love for the outdoors did not stop at hunting, as he enjoyed fishing, hiking, skiing and much more.
He is survived by his wife, Judy, 3 daughters, Robin (Chris) Slattery- McComas, Cindy (Jack) Warkentin, Susan (Grady) Artaz, 5 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. He is further survived by his mother, 7 sisters and 3 brothers.
