Obituary for William M. Ennis
William (Bill) Ennis of Boise, ID passed away unexpectedly on October 31, 2015 at the age of 64, at his cabin by Luck, WI.

Bill was born September 28, 1951, in Shell Lake, WI to Bill and Marge Ennis.

He was raised in Spooner, WI and graduated high school there as well. He then went to WITI in Rice Lake, WI where he took a Wood Technologies course. While attending WITI, he met his future wife, Ramona (Strenke), and they married on November 4, 1971. Together they had two children, Michelle and Micheal. They also fostered numerous kids for many years, including 2 of Ramonas sisters and a brother.

Bill held numerous different positions throughout the years, but the last one gave him the most joy. Him and Ramona were area managers of Union Creek Campground by Sumpter, Oregon for five years. Bill, with his quick wit and charm, fit well with all the new people he met. He also had his own construction business for a time, and he was always building something with his tools and wood. He was very proud of all of his work a true Jack of all trades.

Bill had a very big heart and was always willing to help anyone out in any way he could. He helped Santa out for many years, as the town Santa in Frederic, which he enjoyed immensely. He was an amazing man and very unforgettable. He was happy if he could make other people smile.

Bill enjoyed many things in life. Taking vacations with his wife and seeing the world was one of his favorite things to do. They went on 5 different cruises to many different islands, toured numerous National Parks, and meandered their way across the United States, including a Hawaiian vacation for their 30th wedding anniversary and a graduation trip with their son to Alaska. He also loved deer hunting, cooking on the grill, and his Green Bay Packers and Boise State football teams.
