William "Billy" Ruttner

June 7, 1963 — January 2, 2021

Our beautiful little brother, William “Billy” Joseph Ruttner, age 57 of Denmark, went to Eternal Life on Saturday, January 2, 2021 after a battle with cancer. He was born on June 7, 1963 in Green Bay, to the late Burton and La Verne (Dahlke) Ruttner. He was a loving person, who would give the shirt off his back to help another. Billy was a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Denmark, Baptized and Confirmed. His proudest moment was the birth of his son, Robert, who was his fishing buddy. He loved fishing with Robert, scratch off tickets and helping others. His fun loving, good hearted nature will be missed by his friends and family.
Survivors include his son, Robert, significant other, Tracy Fisher, brothers and sisters; Dennis (Friend, Angela Van Pay) Ruttner, of Maribel, Christine (Curtiss “Butch”) Schoen, of Denmark, Karen (Friend, Gene “Sonny” Scudder) Arendt-Borchardt, of Green Bay, Daniel Rezek, of Cooperstown, David Ruttner, of Abrams, Debra (Glenn) Musil , of Carlsville, Mark (Friend, Lisa Treml) Ruttner, of Kewaunee, Joan (Friend, Todd Brey) Hoogland, of Green Bay, Kathleen (Joseph) Tuschel, of Mishicot and Cindy (Friend, Tim Albers) Paider, of Denmark. He is further survived by many nieces, nephew, other relatives, and friends.
Preceding Billy in death are his parents, sister, Sharon Rezek, niece, Jessica Paider, brothers in law; Tony Paider, Glenn Arendt and Glenn Borchardt and sister in law, Theresa (Bitto) Ruttner.
Family and friends may gather on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 beginning at 3:00pm until 7:00pm at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 435 Wisconsin Avenue, Denmark. Visitation will continue at 9:00am until 10:45am on Thursday, January 7, 2021 at the church with a service to follow at 11:00am, Pastor Andrew Zoerb officiating. Those in attendance are required to wear masks and asked to practice social distancing. No exceptions. The service will be available to view through Our Savior’s Lutheran Church Facebook page. Burial will take place in West Danish Cemetery, Denmark sometime in early summer, 2021.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Heartland Hospice and the team of Doctors who helped care for Billy during his fight with cancer.
