Bill was in the hospital being treated for a very serious nocardia infection in his right lung and thyroid. He was recovering slowly, but definitely showing progress. Very early Wednesday morning he had a massive stroke on the right side of his brain. Even if he did survive and recover, he would not have anything close to the life and function that he wanted.

We've decided to choose comfort care only and inpatient hospice care. Please feel free to let his old friends know. I don't have the energy to look up names and numbers. I would prefer not to get a lot of calls right now please.

Bill wanted to be cremated and was adamantly against a wake and funeral. Finances permitting, Bill's older daughter Danielle and I would like to plan a memorial party (or hammer in?) back in La Crosse later in the summer.

He's resting peacefully in hospice right now. I'll let you know how things go.

I don't know the man but I'll be praying for a peaceful and quick end for him, tough to pray for him to go on in that condition isn't it? Merciful God take him in Your arms and carry him home, IJHN, Amen

Bill and his family are in my prayers. I pray that he is at peace and I pray for peace for the family.

Roger,

Thanks for posting this. I sent Bill a card last week after your posting that he was ill.

Please keep us informed about a later memorial service for Bill.

Very sad news. Bill was a good guy.

Bill and family are on the list here.

Does it seem we're losing a lot of legends lately?

From Kirsten this morning on Facebook:

"Bill passed away early this morning, just in time to start off his new path with the sunrise, his favorite time of day."

RIP



Yes, Frosty, we've lost way too many great ones.

I know this is a bit late but thought of sharing the information just the same...

The Teaching Tent at the 2012 ABANA conference will be named the "Bill Fiorini Memorial Teaching Tent" this time in honor of him.

Kirsten has made mention of possibly having some of his tools and unfinished projects in the gallery and possibly in the auction as well. ABANA is accepting any donations in honor of Bill to go towards the teaching tent expenses.

Bill was a natural artist and dedicated teacher.
