William F. Ehrke was born on November 2, 1953 to Elmer and Marcella (Sadowski) Ehrke. He was an avid Packer fan and watching them play gave him great joy. Bill touched the lives of many people and was such a special person that taught us all what love truly was. For the past 17 years, Bill was at home in Berger House of Fond du Lac and we are so thankful for the love and care that was given to him. We are also thankful for the SSM Health at Home – Hospice team for making these final days as peaceful as possible for Bill.
Bill is survived by his siblings, James (Annette) Ehrke of Columbus, Thomas (Lori) Ehrke of Columbus, and Joanne (James) Mengel of Fond du Lac; many nieces and nephews; other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, John; and a niece, Samantha Ehrke Hensler.
