MARQUETTE - William S. Holm, 54, a resident of the Marquette County Medical Care Facility since January 2007, formerly of 101 Riverland Drive, Marquette, entered eternal life early Sunday morning, November 29, 2009, at the Marquette County Medical Care Facility.

Born April 10, 1955, in Fulda, Germany, a son of William J. and Maria J. (Flori) Holm, William was raised in Marquette since the age of seven and was a 1973 graduate of Marquette Senior High School.

He worked for Sandy's Restaurant during his high school years and then at Cleveland Cliffs Inc. In 1976, he entered the IBEW apprentice program and completed his training in 1980. He lived in California, New York and Hawaii, enjoying scuba diving and racing kayaks during his time there. He also enjoyed trips back to Germany to visit relatives. Another passion was riding his Harley and being a member of the Harley's Owner Group since 1990. William was the apprenticeship director for Local 1070 and served on the E-board committee and the negotiating committee for a time, before retiring from the IBEW in 2005 after 28 years, due to illness.

Survivors include his parents, William J. and Maria J. (Flori) Holm; significant other, Marie Spencer of Marquette, her daughter, Heather, and granddaughter, Lilly; brothers, Joseph Holm of Marquette and Robert (Kris) Holm of Harvey; sisters, Linda (Mark) Johnson of Marquette and Gloria (Jon) Moen of Pickerington, Ohio; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by a sister, Donna Ryan in 1982; and a brother, Charles in 1965.

Visitation for William will take place on Friday, December 4, from 4:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Fassbender Funeral Home. Services will follow at 7 p.m. with the Rev. Jeff Johnson officiating. Burial will take place in Holy Cross Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Willy's name to Bay Cliff Health Camp or the Marquette County Medical Care Facility.
