Herzig, William G. (Bill

Bill was born on September 30, 1942 to William G. and Helen C. (Warnke) Herzig. He passed peacefully on May 21, 2013. Bill was a 1960 graduate of Libbey High School. He loved sports his whole life. He was a pretty good shortstop and played high school and federation baseball where he set a record at that time of striking out 8 consecutive batters as a relief pitcher. He later played softball for several teams, finally retiring from playing at the age of 64. Bill started as a truck driver at The Toledo Blade and worked his way up in various positions including interim Director of Circulation and retired after 37 years. He finished his career at Banner Mattress after 6 years. He was very involved in the Toledo community including President of the Old Newsboys Good fellow Association, President of the Ohio Circulation Managers Association, served on the City of Toledo Baseball Softball Commission and later the City of Toledo Athletic Commission. Bill also served as a Supply Sergeant in the 983rd Army Engineer Battalion, served on the Advisory Board of the Volunteers of America, was President of Meadowvale Boosters Club and most recently was on the Executive Board and was Treasurer at Morocco United Brethren Church. His brightest moments were when he was able to coach his 3 daughters to many softball championships.

Bill loved the Ohio State Buckeyes and is looking forward to having the best seat in the house. He was also an avid golfer and enjoyed playing with two different groups. He was so very proud of his children's and grandchildren's accomplishments and he knows they will go far in life. Most of all he's looking forward to his Sunday afternoon drives with Barbara again.

Surviving Bill are his daughters, Michele (Todd) Audet, Lori (Stewart) Carr, and Amy (Greg) Pisanti. He also leaves behind his beautiful and talented grandchildren; Andrew, Nick, Rachel, Sydney, Alex, Lindsay, Anthony, and Gabby.

Preceding Bill in death was his loving wife Barbara, parents, sister Berdonna, and brother Jack.

The family would like to thank Jeff and Don for their endless support. We would also like to thank Pastor Todd Greenman and the entire congregation at Morocco U.B. for their support and prayers throughout Bill's battle with cancer.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Bill. He and I worked closely together in our capacities at Morocco UB Church and were a part of many lunches with others from the church following services on Sunday mornings. We have lost a dear friend but find comfort knowing that he is at peace in the hands of our Lord and will suffer no more.

Don Schroeder

I fondly recall Bill's calm and friendly responses in time of conflict. May God bless his family in this time of loss.

A while back I came home one afternoon and saw Bill polishing his new sports car.I accused him of having a post mid-life crisis.Bill said he had been to his 50th high school reunion and when he learned how many of his classmates had passed away he bought the Corvette he had always wanted. I'm glad for his time to enjoy it. Bill Manley (neighbor)


My thoughts and prayers are with you Bill and your family.
