William 'Bill' Weichlein
William "Bill" Weichlein, 88, of Dyersburg, Tennessee, died Monday, Feb. 10, 2020, at Harborview Health Systems of Dyersburg. Born Nov. 22, 1931, he was the son of the late Henry B. and Bertha C. Heim Weichlein.
Bill married Shirley Weichlein in 1954 during the Korean War in Cambridge, England, while he was serving in the United States Air Force. They originally settled in Kokomo, Indiana, and then moved to Salem, Illinois, and later Dyersburg, both with World Color Press.
In 1993 the couple retired to Pahrump, Nevada, but ultimately decided to call Dyersburg home.

Weichlein and wife Sharon, of Dyersburg; five grandchildren, Kao Organ and wife Ashley, Christian Clark, Taylor Larson, Sydney Larson, Anthony Hertel and wife Jeanna; and five great-grandchildren, Xavier Hertel, Xander Hertel, Rileigh Organ, Mike Organ and Aryana Organ.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years, Shirley Weichlein.
A private graveside service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Alzheimer's Foundation at alz.org or the Wounded Warriors, 4899 Belfort Road, Suite 300, Jacksonville, FL 32256.
