Victor William Bickers

September 14, 1937 ~ June 4, 2022 (age 84)


Victor Williams (Bill) Bickers passed away peacefully in his home on the afternoon of June 4, 2022.  Barbara (Bledsaw) Bickers, the love of Bill’s life preceded him in death on July 25, 2018.  These high school sweethearts built a beautiful family in their nearly 65 years together.  We find comfort in knowing that Bill has joined the love of his life in a better place. Bill leaves three children and one son-in-law; Michaell D. Bickers of Florida, Katrina (Tina) and Guy Roberts of Mahomet, IL, and Trevis J. Bickers also of Mahomet IL.  Bill also leaves behind 10 grandchildren that his world literally revolved around; Matthew Roberts (Stefanie) of Somonauk, IL, Victoria Rosenbecker (Kurt) of Bradenton FL, Nicholas Roberts (Alexis) of Fisher IL, Kevin Roberts (Kat) of Mahomet, IL, Jordan Roberts of Mahomet, IL, and Daunte Roberts (fiancé Stephanie) serving in the U.S. Army, Daniel & Hayley Bickers of Utah and Nathan Bickers of Champaign. Bill also leaves behind his most treasured blessings, his 10 great grandchildren: Grayce & Eirika (Kevin & Kat), Kingston & Theodore (Tori & Kurt), Jamison, Ainsley & Kinsley (Matthew & Stef), Skylar & Taylor (Nathan), and August (Hayley).  Bill’s Family was everything to him! Bill grew up in Urbana, IL, graduating from Urbana High School in the class of 1955.  He worked as a service station owner and mechanic most of his life, and many would attest that he was the best!  He raced go-karts, he was a fisherman, a bowler, a hunter, and he shot trap.  Bill loved his hobbies and, in most of them, he rose to the top.  That was Bill Bickers, whatever he chose to do there was only one way to do it - the right way, giving 120%.  Bill was all in, all of the time.  That is how he did life every day. To his family Bill was always bigger than life, always there for us, making our life count because we counted to him. Bill Bickers, a life well lived until he went home to be with his sweetheart!
