William H. Laser, 78, of Monroeville, passed away after an illness on Monday morning, July 1, 2019 in Admiral’s Pointe Nursing Home, Huron, with his family by his side.
He was born on October 20, 1940 in Port Clinton, OH to the late Harold and Pearl Laser. He was retired from Ford Motor Company, where he was a hi-lo driver.

Bill was an All-Ohio football player in his high school days. He was a member of the Huron Eagles, Sandusky American Legion, V.F.W., and AMVETS. He loved to play euchre, visit casinos, play in recreational softball leagues, and was an avid golfer. However, he most loved his grandchildren. He took great joy and pride in their many accomplishments.
