William “Bill” Brian Fasbender
William “Bill” Brian Fasbender, 58, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past ten years, passed away peacefully and at home after a year long battle with cancer on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 in Cape Coral. He was born August 1, 1961 in Chippewa Falls, WI.
Bill was raised on the family dairy farm in Cornell, Wisconsin and after high school attended the Eau Claire Technical School for Carpentry. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and drive and held all sorts of outdoor jobs throughout his life which led to his perpetual tan. He was a bridge builder, owned a snow plow business, and owned a construction company. He most recently owned and operated a lawn service business in Cape Coral. His passion was carpentry and was great at building and fixing things. He enjoyed football, especially the Green Bay Packers, and loved traveling, golfing, and hunting. He was the consummate storyteller and teacher, whether it be with his family, employees, friends, or grandchildren. Bill gave the BEST hugs and his smile lit up the room. He had a great sense of humor and was always quick with a funny remark.
Bill is survived by his beloved wife of over 12 years, Kris Fasbender (Scherbarth) of Cape Coral; loving mother, Nancy Fasbender (Olmstead) of Cornell, WI; three loving children, Rosie Holt (Richard) of Valdosta, GA, Samantha Lee (Seth) of Billings, MT, and Nick Fasbender (Alyssa) of Eau Claire, WI; stepchildren, Jessica Boie (Jason) of Cottage Grove, MN, and Jason Mannin (Ashley) of Virginia Beach, VA; five siblings, Eileen Scott (Steve) of Arden Hills, MN, Tony Fasbender (Michelle) of Holcombe, WI, Ron Fasbender (Patty) of Reed City, MI, Dan Fasbender of Cornell, WI, and Mike Fasbender (Trisha) of Princeton, MN; twelve grandchildren, Connor, Sophia, Easton, Hunter, William, Lucas, Thomas, Rylee, Ryan, Ryder, Preston, and Wesley; as well as in laws, and many nieces and nephews.
