January 2, 1938 - June 29, 2015
NORWAY- William C. Mendina of Norway passed away Monday morning, June 29, 2015 at his home. He was 77 years old. Bill was born on January 2, 1938 in Loretto, the son of the late Charles Mendina and Ellen (Tinti) Mendina Pickl. On August 16, 1958, Bill married the love of his life Barbara Rewolinski at St. Stanislaus Church in Milwaukee, WI. They soon started a family- but the love of the Upper Peninsula could be held back no longer. The Mendina family moved to Norway in 1976 and Bill lived there the rest of his life. He was born with an unparalleled work ethic and sharp sense for business. His companies, Mendina Construction and Superior Seamless Gutters, are well-known and respected by many. You could always count on seeing Bill driving from job to job to job in his truck with his dog, Mister, happily by his side. Bill loved the outdoors- and hunting and fishing were his favorites. He enjoyed spending time with friends, playing FARKLE with Bob and Jan Giannunzio, and challenging the casino. But what brought him his greatest happiness were his wife, his children, and especially his grandchildren. He cherished every moment spent with his family. Bill is survived by wife Barbara Mendina; sons Dante (Peggy Kelly) Mendina of Norway and Mario (Toni) Mendina of Iron Mountain; daughter Dawn (John) Bal of Norway; grandchildren Tony (Cameo) Mendina of Land-O-Lakes, FL., Andy (Katie) Mendina of Iron Mountain, Sienna Mendina of Iron Mountain, and Daniel Bal of Norway; brother Ray Mendina of Dallas, TX; sisters Donna (Bill) Gigl of Fort Worth, TX and Sandy Mendina of Fond du Lac, WI; sister-in-Law Camille Rewolinski of Winter Haven, FL; step-brother Tom (Mary) Pickl of Franklin, WI; and many nieces and nephews. Family will greet friends on Tuesday, July 7 from 9-11 a.m. at St. Barbara’s Church in Vulcan. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday at 11 a.m. at St. Barbara’s Church, with Fr. Timothy Ekaitis, presiding. The Family request that memorial contributions may be made to St. Barbara’s Church.
