Bill was born January 20, 1935 in Sheboygan to William A. and Marie (Smith) Kaemmer. Bill was a graduate of Central High School.

Bill followed in his father's footsteps and became the owner of the family business, Kaemmer Food Service, which was started by his grandfather Arthur Kaemmer. Bill retired in 2009. Not only was he a hard working businessman, he was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He had a wonderful sense of humor and the gift of gab. Hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and travel in his motorhome up north were some of his many enjoyments in life. He was the Charter Captain of the "Chicks Delight", had a 1957 Robins Egg Blue T-Bird that he loved taking out for rides, his need for speed, had him spending time at the racetrack watching his grandchildren race, or enjoying an afternoon at home watching NASCAR. Bill truly enjoyed his yard and all the animals it attracted, especially the deer he fed and watched out the window. He was active in the Snowmobile Club, the Antique Snowmobile Club, and the Smerkes Sportsman Club.
Bill is survived by his wife of 61 years, Kay, by his children; Debora (Scott) Thiel, Billy (Tammie) Kaemmer, Carol (John) Haese, and Dan (Tracey) Kaemmer, by his six grandchildren; Rebecca (Matt) Flynn, Scotty (Alyssa Cullen) Thiel, Kim Kaemmer, John Paul Haese, Nick Kaemmer, and Nathan Brion, by his great-granddaughter Elena Brion, brother Robert (Ginger) Kaemmer, sister Donna (Tom) Knabe, brother-in-law Bob (Sandy) Kuehlmann, sisters-in-law, Betty Kuehlmann and Margie Kuehlmann, special friend Pat Schroeder, and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
