Bill "Uncle Bill" Graber, age 63, of Livingston passed away on Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at Upland Hills Health in Dodgeville after a brief illness.
Bill was an avid hunter, he enjoyed deer hunting with his buddies Darin & Derrick Millard and Dan Ley. Bill enjoyed showing beef cattle and sheep, with many awards in the show ring. After graduating from Iowa Grant High School, Bill worked in the family business at Livingston Feed & Lumber Company and farming. In later years Bill's passion became collecting antique tractors, only Internationals would do. Tractor pulling became a hobby, with his protege Sarah Buckhaus with his favorites, The International 1568 V8 and 1206. Bill was a member of the Livingston-Clifton Fire Department for 30 years.
Bill will be missed for his dry sense of humor, and his ability to help anyone, or anywhere he was needed.
Bill is survived by his sister Cheryl Graber, brother-in-law Bill Look, his niece Cassie (Derrick Niven) and his great niece Ophelia Niven "the apple of his eye". He is preceded in death by his parents Joyce Crary and Robert Graber.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 18, 2023 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at the Livingston-Clifton Fire Department in Livingston with a Time to Remember at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations to the Livingston-Clifton Fire Department and the Montfort First Responders would be appreciated. The family would like to thank Fresenus Dialysis for the special care the last 3 years.
