William Levicki was born in River Rouge on June 22, 1938. He was the last surviving of four boys born from the union of the late Andrew B. and Mary (Wankewicz) Levicki. At a young age, Bill’s, family moved to Dundee to help on the family farm. He was a 1956 graduate of Dundee High School.
Following graduation, Bill, took employment with the Ford Motor Company. He would marry the love of his life, the former Lila Kluckey, at St. Irene Parish on August 3, 1957. Bill would soon find a position with Detroit Edison as a lineman. He was a dedicated, hard worker. The couple was blessed with three boys of their own. Bill selflessly provided for his family, even helping his sons all obtain college educations.
Bill loved collecting antiques and guns. He enjoyed visiting auctions and flea markets no matter where he traveled trying to find treasures. Bill daily visited Kroger to see what was on clearance in aisle 14. His habits actually led him to becoming quite well-known at many venues. Bill was a member of the American Legion Auxillary in Dundee, where he often socialized.
More than anything in this world, Bill, was proud of his family and especially enjoyed sharing his experiences with his grandchildren.
