Following high school Bill went to work at Metromail, now known as Innovairre, where he worked in the warehouse as a forklift driver and various other responsibilities. After nearly 40 years, he was forced to retire due to health reasons.

Always working, Bill spent many hours at the family farm. He collected farm toys, enjoyed motorcycling, and experimented with new recipes when cooking. Following the activities of his children and spending time with them were a priority for Bill.

Pleasant, IA, and Justin Rauenbuehler currently serving in the United States Army, stationed at Ft. Polk in Louisiana; his mother, Dorothy Rauenbuehler of Winfield, IA; a sister Susan McConnell of Danville, IA; and three brothers, Gerald (Penny) Rauenbuehler of Mt. Pleasant, IA, Michael Rauenbuehler of Winfield, IA, and Joseph (Kathy) Rauenbuehler of Mt. Pleasant, IA. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
