William Robert Stasek, 70, a resident of Inverness found peace on March 19th. Bill, as his friends knew him, was President and Owner of Bill Stasek Chevrolet in Wheeling for over 35 years. He died in the loving arms of his wife of 46 years, Linda, and family.

William Stasek was born on August 19, 1947 in Franklin Park, Illinois and grew up in Villa Park, graduating from Willowbrook High School and the School of Engineering at the University of Illinois in 1970.

Bill and Linda met and married while both working at 3M Company. Through their love, they adopted two children from The Cradle.

Bill followed his father’s footsteps and began a career in the automotive industry. He served as an officer of The Chicago Automobile Trade Association and Chairman of the Chicago Auto Show. He was a member of the Chevrolet Advertising Association, the National Dealer Council, and Illinois Attorney General’s Advisory Board. Bill and Linda were supporters and promoters of The Cradle in Evanston, where Bill served on the Board of Directors. On behalf of The Cradle, they organized and attended “The First Look For Charity” for over 20 years.

Bill was a devoted father to Jeremy (fiancé Marissa) and Monica (Chris) Sebring; cherished grandfather “Papa” to his six grandchildren, Audrianna, Nathan, Alex, Tristen, Caroline, and Christopher; dear brother of Bob; and his in-laws Richard (Leah), Sandra (Rolly), William (late Lin), Mai (Steve); also survived by many nieces and nephews.
