William K. "Big Bird" Race

August 16, 1948 — September 28, 2020

William Kenneth Race “Big Bird”, age 72, passed away peacefully September 28, 2020. He was born August 16, 1948 in Watertown, WI to Charles and Mary Race.

Bill was a kind and generous person with a sometimes-unusual sense of humor. His presence will be missed by all of the lives he touched everywhere he went.

He was a graduate from Arrowhead High School and Waukesha County Technical College. For 47 years, he worked at Husco International, where he retired from in November of 2015. He enjoyed the outdoors and in later years golfing.

Bill is survived by his mother, Mary Race; his nephew and family Chris and Jasmine Race and their daughter Elena. He is further survived by many cousins, other family and friends that he loved deeply.

Visitation on Thursday, October 8th at 10 AM followed by a prayer service at 11 AM. All services will be at St. Charles Catholic Church, 313 Circle Dr., Hartland, WI 53029.
