Bill was born July 4, 1952 in Iowa City, the son of Gerald Francis and Teresa (Donohue) Neuzil. He was a 1970 graduate of Regina High School and an active member of 4-H. Bill attended the University of Iowa where he played football for the Hawkeyes. On August 23, 1986 Bill married Julie M. Burns at St. Wenceslaus Church.
Bill was a longtime Johnson County farmer with a strong work ethic, a contagious smile, and a big heart. As his daughters were growing up Bill was involved in coaching their sports teams and was always their biggest fan on the sidelines. Most important to Bill were his family and friends, and he was always available to lend a helping hand.
He was a member of St. Patrick’s Church, Knights of Columbus Council 842, the Eagles and the Moose.
Bill is survived by his loving wife, Julie and their daughters, Katherine Jean “Katie” Neuzil of Ely and Laura Marie Neuzil of Iowa City and his furry sidekick Murphy; his sister, Mary Jean Neuzil Cochran (Danny) of Ankeny; his brothers and sisters-in-law, Stuart Burns (Carol), Janet Johnson, Stan Burns (Shellie), Steve Burns, Brian Burns (Nancy Blake) and Marlene “Charlie” Peters (Bob); his nieces and nephews who he dearly loved and his extended family.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents.
