William Albert "Bill" Gfroerer USMC (ret), 88, Madera, CA

William Albert "Bill" Gfroerer A member of the Greatest Generation, William Albert "Bill" Gfroerer was born on Feburary 7, 1919 to Albert William and Myrtle Olivia Gfroerer in Santa Rosa. He went to be with the Lord October 10, 2007. His Alsatian Grandfather Alphonse, a baker, handed out bread to survivors of the '06 Quake. Bill graduated from Jefferson High in Daly City in 1937. In 1940 he joined the Marine Corps. He was shot in both legs in 1943 during the battle for Bougainville in the Solomon Islands. Due to the advances of penicillin, doctors saved both legs. Bill also served in the Korea War and was in the Marines 20 years. He married his sweetheart and secretary Catherine "Trudie" Janzen when they were both at the Marine depot on Harrison Street. They were married 56 wonderful years. Bill then went to work for the City of Daly City and was a member of the Crocker Lodge, where he was a past master. After Trudie died, he moved to Madera to live with his son Paul. We want to thank Paul and his partner Barry for taking wonderful care of Dad in his last years. Bill was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Trudie; and daughter Dianne Salome. He is survived by his sister, three sons, son-in-law, six grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Myrt MacDonald, David and Deborah Gfroerer and children Kyle and Kristen. Robert Salome and children Lauren and Stephen. Gary and Lori Gfroerer and daughter Nicole. Paul Gfroerer and Barry Welch.
