William Anthony Eilert, 35, passed away Saturday, February 17, 2024 in Wichita, Kansas. William was born October 30, 1988, to Kathleen (Ackerman) Eilert and Mark Eilert at U.S. Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida. He was their fourth child of five.
Born to a military family, William moved frequently as a child, first to Tennessee, and then again to Kansas where he began school, attending St. John's Catholic Schools in Beloit. He attended Kansas State University in Manhattan, where he studied Engineering, and Manhattan Area Technical College, where he studied Computer Science. William worked as a bartender at Finn's Neighborhood Pub for several years before finally returning to Beloit to work on the family farm, which he found much to his liking.
William was known for his gentle personality, agreeable demeanor, and brilliant sense of humor. He made fast friends in every walk of life and was quick to volunteer his help to a friend or family member's personal problem or dizzying home construction project. William proved loyal to a fault, and many friends and family found themselves in his debt as the technical genius quickly absorbed a problem and set to work on their solution. William loved gaming with his friends and siblings, hunting, fishing, and playing with his beloved dog Trout.
Surviving are his parents, Kathleen (Ackerman) Eilert of Park and Mark Eilert of Beloit; his grandparents, Robert and Alice Ackerman of Park and Donald and Dolores Eilert of Beloit. He is also survived by his siblings and their families: Kenneth, Jillian, Josselyn, and Thomas Eilert of Indianapolis, Indiana; Matthew, Emma, Charly, Ellie, and Ralph Eilert of Park; Kelly, Manny, Emery, and Isabella Sandlin of Manhattan; and Benjamin, Sadie, Adalynn, Wyatt, and Rylee Eilert of Beloit. His many nieces and nephews held William as a doting and favored uncle.
