William “Bill” Edwin Dunham, age 75, of Strum, WI passed away peacefully February 23, 2022, at Mayo Hospital in Eau Claire, WI. Bill was born April 22, 1946, to Arthur and Muriel (Moltzau) Dunham in Eau Claire, WI.
He was united in marriage to Carmen Lund in 1970 in Nashau, IA. They were married for 44 years before they divorced. Together they raised three sons together on their dairy farm in Strum. Bill lived on the farm for his entire life where he preferred Oliver Tractors and would talk to anyone that listened about them. He spent his days fixing things up, milking the cows, and listening to 104.5. When he wasn’t doing that, you could find him at the tractor pulls, playing cards, and attending auctions. Bill sold the cows and ‘retired’ in 1999 and then did the Amish milk route where he picked up the cans and took it to the creamery.
Bill is survived by his children, Ed (Jennifer), Alan (Emily), and Burt Dunham; grandchildren, Owen, Ethan, Aiden, Tirzah, Marah (Ben) Blake, Judah, and Obadiah; former spouse, Carmen; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Russell.
A memorial service will be held 11:00 A.M. Friday, March 4, 2022, at Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church in Osseo. Family and friends may gather for a visitation at church Thursday, March 3, 2022, from 5-8PM and again one hour prior to the service on Friday.
