GLASGOW – Wilmer (Bill) Henry Peil, born in Bloomer, Wis., on April 2, 1921, came to rest in Glasgow on Dec. 24, 2012. He had resided at Highland Ridge Assisted Living until his health weakened and then was cared for at Barren County Healthcare until he expired.
Wilmer graduated from Bloomer High School in 1939 and briefly worked at Waukesha Motors, Waukesha, Wis., until he entered

Wilmer returned to his hometown and began a career in law enforcement. He worked as an officer for the City of Bloomer, Chippewa County, and the state of Wisconsin for close to 30 years.
Upon retirement, Wilmer moved to Vero Beach, Fla.,
where he worked as a beekeeper and in security at Piper
Airplane Manufacturer for another 20 years. He eventually
moved to Glasgow in 2011 to be closer to his son,
after the death of his wife in 2010.

of Maryland and North Carolina; sisters-in-law, Carol
