William John Schaendorf, age 79, of Dorr, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. He was preceded in death by his parents Floyd and Agnes Schaendorf; his wife, Norma (Hilaski) Schaendorf; his brother, Jimmy Schaendorf; and his sister, Arlene Blank.
He is survived by his son, Jim (Lisa) Schaendorf; and his daughter, Debbie (Ken) Schafer; four grandchildren Ashley (Colten) DeHaan, Tyler (Cassie) Schaendorf, Cody Schafer, and Morgan Schafer; and his brother, Bob (Linda) Schaendorf.
Bill had two passions in life. The first, building quality homes in West Michigan with over 1400 built with his brother Bob. The second was farming; he purchased back the family farm in 1973. The farm continues operating today with the fifth and sixth generations.
