Bill Parry

May 7, 1954 — February 9, 2023

Appleton

Bill Parry, age 68, longtime resident of Appleton, passed away peacefully in his home on Thursday, February 9, 2023. He was born in Milwaukee on May 7, 1954 to the late Joe and Rosanne Parry. He was the devoted and beloved husband of Jill Parry and together, he and Jill raised 4 children, Joe (Kathlyn), Tom (Emily), Aimie (Dan), and Will (Becca). He will be deeply missed by his cherished grandchildren Bennett, Henry, Jack, Oliver, Brielle, Arthur, Danny, and Summer.

He will be further missed by his siblings: Bob Parry, Dan Parry, and Joanne Hannigan; siblings in law: Mona Parry, Pat Hannigan, Jay Peerenboom (Tammy), and Tari Van Hoof (Dave), and many nieces, nephews, Godchildren, other relatives, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Rosanne Parry, parents-in-law Joe and Betty Peerenboom, Eric Peerenboom, Brent Ludwig, and Gabriel Jozwiak. 

Everything Bill did was for his family. Bill coached all of his kids in basketball and soccer growing up and always knew how to motivate and teach each individual. He was his grandkids’ number one fan at all of their games. Bill was a successful IT Consultant because he knew how to solve complex problems and present to his audiences in the most effective ways. Bill filled every room with a lifetime of love, endless stories, and brilliant humor. The light that he gave will continue shining through all those he loved.

There will be a Mass of Christian Burial on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 at 11:00 AM at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 1810 North Mc Donald Street in Appleton. There will be a visitation at the church on Tuesday morning from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Interment will be at St. Joseph Cemetery in Appleton.
