In addition, Wil is survived by 14 great grandchildren. Along with his family he had many close friends that he considered his kids and grandkids whom he loved very much.

After retiring, as promised to his wife, they moved to Henderson, NV. Prior to retirement Wil was a member of the Oconomowoc Toast Masters. He and Lori also enjoyed many years in couples bowling leagues. Post retirement he began acting in Las Vegas, which was a dream none of us knew about. He became a member of SAG-AFTRA and was cast in plays, movies, commercials and print advertisement. More than anything he enjoyed his time with family and friends that would come to visit them wherever they maybe. If you knew Wil, Willie, Sergio, then you would know he would say "I did it my way".
