William Christian Weisshaar of Burlington was born Sept. 23, 1902, in Bethune to John and Christina (Wilhelm) Weisshaar.  He was baptized and confirmed at Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Bethune and attended Yale Country School for seven years.  Following the death of his father in 1916, he helped his Mother maintain the family farm.  On Oct. 8, 1929, Bill was married to Frieda Adolf.  They continued farming until his health forced him to leave the farm.  In 1942 they went into the grocery business, first at Brownwood store north of Vona and in 1943 at Idalia.  In 1953 they moved to Yuma, where in 1955 they opened the Yuma Shoe Store.  Following retirement in 1974 they moved to Burlington to be closer to family, relatives and friends. Bill enjoyed reminiscing about old times of which he had a vivid memory and enjoyed fishing and baseball.  Bill loved all little children, and his family was very special to him.  But above all he loved his Lord and his church of which he was a life long member.

Bill was called to his eternal home Aug. 6, 1990, at the age of 87 years, 10 months and 14 days at Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital following a brief stay at Grace Manor.  Bill is survived by his wife Frieda of Burlington, three sons and one daughter.  Junior and wife Jerry of Idalia; Eileen Rheuark of Eugene, OR; Gene and wife Kathy of Montrose; and Dennis and wife Janet of Grant [sic] Junction.  There are 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.  Also surviving are sisters Margaret Stahelcker and Anna Adolf of Burlington, Pauline Schlichenmayer of Longmont and brothers Jake and Karl of Burlington.  Bill was preceded in death by brothers Carl, in infancy, John of Newberg, OR, sisters Lena Schlichenmayer of Bethune, Frieda and Christina Fischer of Nebraska and Mary Adolf of Burlington.  One son-in-law, Paul Rheuark.
