It is with great sadness that we report the passing of longtime member Bill Treul. On behalf of the entire PYC, we offer our condolences to the Treul family.
Treul, William M. "Bill" Of Pewaukee, passed away at Avalon Square in Waukesha, on February 6, 2014, at the age of 87. Beloved husband of 42 years of Sharon (nee Nielsen). Dear brother-in-law of Ruth Treul, and nieces Debbie (Tom) Hoesly, Vicki (Bruce Annoye) Treul and Pam Atkinson. Further survived by other relatives and friends. Preceded in death by his brother, Fred.
During WWII, Bill was in the Army Signal Corps as a photographer and developed photos of the 1940 Olympics and the Nuremburg trials. Starline Manufacturing was founded by Bill's brother Fred in 1954 in their parents' garage. Bill partnered with his brother soon after. Starline engineered and manufactured castings now sold throughout the world.
Bill loved the outdoors: hunting, fishing, sailing and curling. He was a long time member of the Milwaukee Curling Club, Kettle Moraine Curling Club, Pewaukee Yacht Club and Chenequa Country Club. He will always be remembered for the love and care he gave to his beloved Wheaten Terriers: Shannon Belle, Tegan and LeRoy.
