    Bill Powers - GoFundMe

    SYB Membership,

    It is with a heavy heart that I inform the membership that on January 5, 2021, Bill Powers passed away unexpectedly at the age of 50 due to a devastating stroke.

    Anyone that knows Bill or has been around him truly knows what and outstanding guy he was. If you ever went to the concession stand and purchased food, he was the man cooking and in charge of the stand. Bill was active in the local community and served on Board of Directors for both Stoughton Youth Baseball, and Stoughton Flag Football.

    An event like this can never be planned for. It is with the utmost humility and gratitude that we ask for your help by donating to the family. His wife and the kids have a long hard road ahead of them. We are raising money to help alleviate the financial burdens they will face in adjusting to the new reality. No amount of money can replace what they have lost, but we would like to provide some financial security to help them in the future.

    Thank you.
