Wilfred “Bill” Gleason, age 88 of Montello, formerly of Milwaukee, passed away on Saturday, July 2, 2022 at Our House Senior Living in Portage.  He was born on May 29, 1934 in Milwaukee to William and Edna (Graef) Gleason.

Bill loved the outdoors.  Everything from deer hunting with a gun and a bow, which was his favorite to boating, fishing, waterskiing, shooting the rapids, camping and riding his motorcycle.  He enjoyed working in the woods, building tree stands and cutting wood for the fireplace.  Favorite pastimes of his were watching the Packers, Brewers, Bucks and painting pictures of landscapes.  In his earlier years, Bill was in a band where he played the drums and sang.

Bill is survived by his wife of 49 years, Jeanette; sister, Alice Lueck, East Troy; brother in law, William A. Polacek, South Milwaukee; two sisters in law, Judith Olson, Illinois and Susan (Jerry) Martini, Phillips; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Lorretta (Mike) Bronk; brother, Bobby Gleason and brother in law, Ralph Lueck.
