William George Reimers, 85, Jamestown, ND, passed away Wednesday, January 3, 2013 at Eventide at Hi-Acres, Jamestown.
William was born December 13, 1927 in rural Bordulac, ND, the son of William M. and Ella (Scharf) Reimers. He attended rural Bordulac schools. William enlisted in the US Army on April 26, 1946 and proudly served his country during the Korean conflict. He was honorably discharged on October 22, 1947 and returned to North Dakota.

William was a great husband, father and grandfather who generously shared his unconditional love. He enjoyed farming in the Wimbledon-Spiritwood Lake area, hunting, fishing, going to auctions and was great at repairing equipment. He took pride in raising livestock and he always had a joke or a story to share with his friends at the truck stop in Jamestown.
William will be greatly missed by his wife, Ruby, Jamestown; children, Mark (Ronda) Reimers, Valley City, ND, Jody Benshoof, Fargo, ND, Robert Reimers, Mandan, ND, Roberta Reimers, Jamestown, Lori Reimers, Valley City, ND, Audrey Reimers and Byron Reimers, both of Jamestown; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; three brothers, Laurence (Viola) Reimers and Henry (Joanne) Reimers, both of Jamestown and Floyd (Elaine) Reimers, Palmer, AK; one sister, Darlene Loebrick, Tucker, GA; and numerous nieces and nephews.
