Bill will be deeply missed and will leave a hole in our hearts that can never be filled. He had many friends throughout the years all whom he cherished and loved. He was always there to serve and depend on in time of need. His heart was so big and he was so unbelievably proud of his family. Bill was a proud member of the armed forces, and active member of the LDS church.

Survived by his 6 Children Billy Tresner (spouse Lori), Jason Tresner (spouse Chastity), Amber Janiszewski (spouse Travis), Heather Tresner(spouse Tommy), Treasha Tresner, Robert Tresner (spouse Holly) . 28 Grandchildren, 7 Great grandchildren, 12 siblings, his mother Doreen Tresner.

Thank you for your prayers during this difficult time.

Godspeed Papa Bill, We love you.

A message from Bill to his family: I hope you all can take a few away from the busy schedule to rest and quiet your minds and be in tune with the Spirit this coming season and feel His Magnificence Glory and Great unconditional compassion and Love. Without His divine Intervention in my Life I know I would have been long gone a time or two ago I mean like gone Home literally. That's another thing I have been pondering and think the most important duty to each other is to try and help each other and more than that help each other make it our real Home.

Love you guys all so stinkin' much y'all have no idea! :)

May the road rise up to meet ye'

May the wind always be at your backs.

May Sunshine caress your face.

May rain fall gently upon your fields.

For every storm a rainbow,

For every trial a good friend,

And until we meet again may God hold you gently in the Hallow of His Mighty Hand

My heart is sad, you always lifted my spirits even though we didn’t get to know eachother very well. You will be missed, but I know you are dancing with my grandma Evelyn and your dad! Aunt Doreen I love you so much and I’m so sorry for the loss of your son! I love ya!

My prayers for your family are added to those of many others. You KNOW will be greatly missed not only by your giant family you loved so very much, but, by many with whom you interacted on Facebook.

Facebook is where we met. Most of our conversations were via video calls. We talked of our children and grandchildren, your walks, fishing, gardening, cooking and baking, your multitude of online "girlfriends" (I was too jealous of the flirting to stay on your Facebook friend list), and our life challenges. I'll miss seeing your house at Christmas time when it becomes a chaos of papers and cards, pics of your culinary endeavors, progress in your garden, and damage from vandalism.

I wish we'd been able to meet at my reunion in Winslow and travel to Layton together as we planned in 2020. I'll miss your indomitable sense of humor and contagious courage. Welcome Home!

Our deepest condolences to the family. We are grateful to have known Bill Tresner and how filled of hope he was for the future. We are better people for have known him.

Troy & Colleen Beynon , Layton, UT, US Dec 16, 2021

Deepest condolences. He sounds like he was a great man and I definitely know he raised a great son, father and husband. Sending prayers to you and yours.

Well said Bill. The news of your passing brought back many memories of you and your wonderful family. As a young man I remember you proudly (yet nervously) observing your son venture onto his own path. You did well sir. You should be proud of your children and the impression you left on the people in this world. Rest now, you’ll be missed.

Christopher Delgado , West Jordan, UT, US Dec 16, 2021

Love you Dad. Gone but never forgotten.

I know you are hearing my thoughts as I share them here for family. There are gaping, painful cavities in many hearts all over the world right now. You are such an international man, with friends and connections everywhere.

You are indisputably the bond your entire family is adhered by. We mourn our patriarch in the Tresner family, and it is more than fitting that we celebrate your life within the 12 days of Christmas parallel and in celebration for the birth of Christ.

I really needed to share this with you personally, but you know... what would life be without some sort of regret, right? I know you understand this and me.

I need to thank you for so many things! Aside from my mom and your son, I know I could without any doubt count on you for ANYTHING. You are significant in my life even when I couldn’t see it, and I never thanked you for this the way I wanted to.

You are significant and paramount in the lives of those I live to protect, namely, Jason, my kids, and my mom.

When Jay and I left Utah, you marched up front to look in on my mom. You were there for Jacob and made your way passed mother nature herself to visit even when it meant riding your bike through the rain and snow. The same is to be said for Derek. Thank you!

More importantly, you are present in my kids lives. They looked so forward as they were all growing up to Papa Bill visiting every payday to treat them to the countless dollar store shopping sprees, kiddie cones, and rollercoaster rides in your car with your unforgettable driving skills.

When my mom passed, my kid’s hearts were shattered, and they were left feeling empty. I never spoke a word before you showed up on our doorstep almost 3,000 miles away. There isn’t a day that has gone by that Jay, and I have not witnessed or felt the love you gift our babies and theirs.

Thank you for being an intellectual sparring partner and letting me win sometimes. Thank you for encouraging me to continue my education. Thank you again for being present in our lives whether we are in the same house or on the other side of the country. I pray my legacy with my grandkids is blessed with the lessons you leave behind and have led by good example.

It is with much sorrow, but great pride I celebrate you this season and all seasons to come Bill.

I love you,


Chastity Tresner Dec 15, 2021

Robert and Family,

I was so sorry to read about your Father.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
