Bill was born on June 13, 1946 in Stevens Point, the son of Robert J. and Catherine L. (Corcoran) Soik. He attended St. Stephen Elementary, Pacelli High School and graduated from P. J. Jacobs High School in 1964. He married Sally J. Dustir on July 7, 2007 at St. Stephen Catholic Church. Sally passed away March 20, 2010. Bill, a master plumber, operated Soik Plumbing and Well Drilling, established by his father in 1953. Bill retired in 2018. He treasured the Wisconsin River. As someone recently said “Bill was one of the original River Rats”. He enjoyed boating and was an enthusiastic Packers fan. He was an avid story teller and truly enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Bill’s optimism and courage, along with his unshakeable Catholic faith, allowed him to face life’s trials and tribulations.
Bill is survived by his sister Mary (Stephen) Oswald, San Antonio, TX; nephews Robert A. Glodowski (Jody), Stevens Point, Robert J. Soik, Green Bay, William P.

I worked for Bill for 29 years. I will always remember Bill bringing in white glazed long johns in the mornings and then tacos on Tuesdays and Burger King fish sandwiches on Fridays. He was very easy-going and never lost his temper no matter how bad things got sometimes. I will miss him. Paul Firkus
Growing up with Bill in grade school and high school, he always had a great attitude and was an empathetic individual. We were in Cub Scouts and enjoyed all of those activities. He always had that big warm and happy smile! We went our separate ways after High School and, regrettably, did not stay in touch. I will remember Bill in my prayers!
Dear Mary and Family,
Fond memories growing up with Billy,Bobby,Carol and myself.All three left us far too soon and suddenly. Heaven is the place of no goodbyes.
Thank you for all you did for Bill over the years! I'll join you via facebook for the service and hope to see you in June.
Love,cousin Susan Corcoran Trailer
