William Romero, Sr Obituary

William “Bill” Anthony Romero, Sr, 71 years of age, of Beatrice died of natural causes Thursday, December 7, 2023. He was born in Rock Springs, Wyoming on July 30, 1952 to Clara Portilo and Maximilliano Romero. Bill would go on to graduate from Waterloo High School in the class of 1971. He was surrounded in life by people who loved him, including Larry Opfer who was like a father to him. Bill enlisted in the United States Air Force and served as an aircraft mechanic, including a tour in Vietnam. He later graduated from Southeast Community College in Lincoln with a degree in Laboratory Technology. Bill went on to retire from the United States Postal Service in 2009 after a long career of almost 32 years. He met his wife Torinna in December of 1990 and they were married on March 29, 1996. Bill was known to all who loved him as the “life of the party” and a constant joker. He viewed joking as a way to cheer people up and keep a positive outlook on life. Bill loved music, pool, fishing, golf, cooking and his Jeep. Those Bill left behind all agree that the most important thing to Bill was his family and making sure they were provided for.

Bill is survived by his wife, Torinna Romero; his four children, Angel Romero-Kiester (Nathan Kiester), Michael English (Gabbie English), William “Liam” Romero (Lyssa Romero), Fred (Lari) Romero; and 6 grandchildren.

A celebration of life will be held at 2 PM on Saturday, December 16, 2023 at the Community Church of Leshara located at 209 Summit Street, Leshara, NE 68064. Harman-Wright Mortuary & Crematory in charge of arrangements.
