Bill Murray Druck was born to William and Cora (Ragan) Druck in Donnelly, MN on June 16, 1927. The family moved to St. Paul and then to Lewisville, where Bill would spend most of his life. He quit high school to join the US Army Air Corps. When he returned, he worked for his father in the garage where they sold Rambler Cars and International Trucks. Bill married Muriel Bottem of St. James on August 14, 1948. They had four children, Cheryl, Kristine, Cynthia and Murray. At one time, Bill owned the Family Cue in Fairmont and the station at the intersection of Highways 15 and 30. He also took classes in Fairmont which enabled him to teach small engine repair in the high schools. Bill's hobbies were go-kart racing, downhill skiing, riding motorcycles and trap shooting. He loved everything with a motor and strived to make it go faster. After retirement, Bill had an engraving business doing desk signs and name badges. Several years ago, he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure which limited his activities. Bill died on Friday, July 1, 2011 at Mayo Health Systems-Immanuel St. Joseph Hospital, Mankato, MN.
