William Kogler Obituary

William W. Kogler, 94, of Grand Rapids, Ohio passed away December 3, 2023 just a few days short of his 95th birthday. William was born on December 8, 1928 to the late Walter and Gertrude Kogler in Toledo, Ohio.

William is survived by his daughter Sandy Kogler, grandson Bryan (Christina) Balish, and great grandchildren Tyler and Austyn.

Although William was legally blind, he never let that stop him. He was a self-sufficient man who enjoyed cutting his own grass, fixing anything, and building cabinets for his daughter. He took an electronics course which taught him how to develop x-rays and worked in the Radiology Department of Toledo Hospital for many years. He loved his guide dog Duke, horse Susie, and his dog Keeba. William enjoyed going fishing, especially at Green Lake in Traverse City, Michigan and was also an Ohio State Buckeyes Football fan.  William was a family man and was willing to help anyone.
