With loving memory, we honor the spirited life of William "Bill" James Maul, born on August 5, 1955, in Lincoln, Nebraska. William was a compassionate soul who had an unassailable love for his family, friends, and every animal he ever met. His resilient spirit was evident in his enthusiasm for life, whether he was tinkering with cars, on a boating expedition, setting up camp under the stars, or engrossed in fascinating tales from the History Channel.\n\nIn his professional life, William found fulfillment as a Diesel Mechanic for the City of Lincoln. His love for his work was palpable, as was his dedication to the community he served. His retirement years were filled with the simple pleasures he loved, continuing his hobbies, and enjoying the company of his significant other, Patricia Lemmer. William was a beacon of light for those fortunate enough to have known him, his infectious spirit transforming acquaintances into friends, underlining his belief that anyone he met could become a friend. \n\nBill is survived by life partner, Pat Lemmer; daughters, Adrienne (Guillaume) Navaro, Christa (Travis) Curry; granddaughter, Eden Navaro; fur babies, Marley, Addison, Goose, Kaia, and Monster.\n\nHe was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Esther Maul.\n\nPlease join us in celebrating William's remarkable life on Saturday, January 13, 2024, 11:00 am, Colonial Chapel Funeral Home, 5200 R Street, Lincoln, Nebraska, 68504.
