He loved listening to all genres of music, shooting pool, fishing, and spending time with family and friends. William was a social butterfly and wasn’t afraid to introduce himself to anyone. He loved to play pranks on anyone he could and was super sneaky too! William was truly gifted at making others smile especially when they needed it most. He touched many lives and will be remembered for his smirk and “smart” attitude.
William is survived by his parents, Zachary Bair and Jessica (Travis) Nelson; sister, Taylor Nelson; grandparents, Judi Bair, William Bair, Wendy Woodson and Bob Ruzicka; favorite aunts and uncles, Jed (Bobbie) Bair and Josh (Amanda) Semrau, as well as many other aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives and close friends.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Jakob Osborne and grandma, Laura Attig.
