- William "Bill" Pergler joined his eternal companion on July 3, 2013. He was born to Josef and Ruzena Pergler in Osterfeldt, Germany on October 10, 1918.
- Dad was a generous hard worker of resilience, commitment and faithfulness. He had a great passion for family, sports (Soccer) and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. His favorite church responsibility was being a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
- The German's Army drafted him near the end of WW II and placed him on the front line. The Russians captured him in 1945 and he spent 3 years in a Russian Prison Camp. Miraculously, he was one of the few to escape and made his way back to Germany. His life showed his dedication and gratitude to God for getting him through this horrendous struggle. Dad's consistent positive attitude blessed all of our lives and helped us look forward in faith.
- He met and married Margarete Hegemeister, the love of his life, in 1948 and they were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple after immigrating to America in 1951.
- He worked for the Granite School District Lunch Program for over 33 years. Bill and Margarete served an 18-month Family History Mission.
- Margarete preceded him in death on January 2, 2013. William is survived by his 4 children, Elizabeth Whittier (Mike), Harold Pergler (Laurie), Helen Brown (Reed), and Caecilie Hodenius (Guenter), 16 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. The family expresses their gratitude to all the family members, the caregivers and IHC Hospice for their loving care, time and service for our father.
