William was born on August 31, 1948 in Spring Valley, Wisconsin, the son of Wayne and Pearl (Wenum) Kittleson. He was raised in Spring Valley where he graduated from high school.
He would be married to the former Diane Huebel. To this union daughters Colleen and Aimee were born. This union would later dissolve. He would later marry Doris Field. To this marriage, daughters Nikki, Carrie, and Angie were blessed. William would later start up his own business, Kittle’s Mobile Repair Company, where he would help move, repair, and fix up mobile homes. He later worked for KolPak in River Falls for several years. Sadly, he injured his back with a work-related accident and was forced to retire.
William’s greatest passion was jumping on his Harley Davidson and going for a drive. Unfortunately, his motorcycle was a complete loss as it was swept away in Hurricane Katrina when he was down south. He enjoyed going to the local classic car shows, grilling with his family, and cheering the Green and Gold to a victory. In earlier years, many great memories were made camping and fishing on the Red Cedar River with his kids.
