William L. Wahlquist

Loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather.

Staunch community supporter, WWII veteran, and a patriarch of Eagle Brook Church, Bill Wahlquist passed away suddenly on March 12. Remarkably vibrant at age 97, Bill enjoyed an independent lifestyle, living in his own home and traveling regularly around the country. On the day of his passing, Bill spoke at the annual White Bear Lake Town Meeting, sharing perspectives about the community he loved. Preceded in death by his darling wife Violet, he is survived by children Richard (Tina) of Woodbridge, VA, Donald of White Bear Lake, Larry of Duluth; four grandchildren William (Shanna), Brian (Jennifer), Bjorn, and Kaija; and three great-grandchildren, Brayden, Kaitlyn, and Violet.

Funeral services 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 19 at Eagle Brook Church, White Bear Lake Campus. Visitation preceding service at the church from 1-2 p.m. Interment Evergreen Memorial Gardens. Memorials preferred to the Greater White Bear Lake Community Foundation.
