Bill was born at Bergland, Michigan on January 20, 1931 to Jane (Willis) and William Saubert. Bill was a graduate of the Bergland Community Schools in 1950. As a child, he held a fascination for trains which led to his vocation until his retirement in 1989. Following his retirement he and his wife Dorothy moved to Donna, Texas. He moved to Florida this spring due to health reasons and to be closer to family.
Bill is survived by two brothers, Philip (Sue), neice Jane Marie of Vera Beach, Florida and brother Richard of Melbourne and numerous cousins. He was preceded in death by his wife and parents.
Cremation has taken place. A committal service will be held by Trinity Lutheran Church of Bergland at a later date.
The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to the many friends and neighbors, especially Jim and Kay Voss for their support and kindness while he lived in Texas.
