Obituary for William A. McCall Sr.

William A. McCall, aka Bill, Dad, GrandPA, Granddaddy, Big Bill, and UB, age 71, of Spring Grove, passed away on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at his home. He was born February 4, 1946 in Evergreen Park to Philip and Norine (Kennedy) McCall. On September 7, 1968 he married the love of his life Marilyn Lawless in Kankakee, Illinois.

Bill was a highly accomplished businessman and leader of companies, an expert in the field of Food Science, a veteran, a master fisherman, a winning coach for his boys, but most of all a loving Husband, Father and Grandfather. A guiding principle and belief throughout his life was that anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Bill is survived by his wife Marilyn, of 48 years; two sons, William (Pamela Zients) McCall Jr., Stephen (Maureen) McCall; five grandchildren, Madison, Daisy, Aidan, Grace, and Chloe; Siblings, Joan (James) Bergren, Christine (Barry) Lamb, Robert McCall, Michael McCall; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother Thomas, and his twin brother Philip McCall. Bill is at rest and peace, and so now are the walleyes and bass in the Chain O’ Lakes.

A private memorial service will be held, and in lieu of flowers, memorials to the American Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family. For further information, please call Thompson Spring Grove Funeral Home at 815-675-0550.
