William “Bill” Kremer, born in Chicago, Ill., to Maria and Christian Kremer on Feb. 9, 1932 passed away Oct. 15, 2014, at the age of 82.
As a young man, Bill joined the Air Force and was stationed in France during the Korean conflict. Upon his return to the states, he began his career of over 50 years in the automotive industry as an engineer with Ford Motor Company.
Kremer moved to Laguna Beach in 1964 when he married his wife of 50 years, Carol Jean Arcoli Kremer. In his retirement, he was active in the local American Legion and was the former commander of Laguna Beach VFW Post 5868.
Kremer enjoyed collecting antique firearms, classic cars, was an avid watcher of Fox News, and a proud American who loved flying his American flags.
Kremer also had a fondness for the pitbull breed thanks to his three rescued granddogs, Buster, JD and Vincent.
Kremer is survived by his wife Carol, daughters Erica Kremer and Michelle Kremer, and granddog Vincent Van Gogh Kremer. He is also survived by his brother Aloysius Kremer of San Marcos, Calif.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to any charity that supports our veterans, pitbull rescue or preserving the beauty of Laguna Beach.
A funeral mass will be held at St. Catherine of Siena church in Laguna Beach on Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 10 a.m. A reception will immediately follow.
