William (Bill) Francis Wernersback Jr., loving husband and father, passed away surrounded by family, after a long fight against Parkinson’s/Lewy Body disease. He is survived by his wife and partner in life of 54 years, Mary, his daughter, Donna Montgomery (Mark), his sons Andrew Wernersback (Stephanie) and Michael Wernersback (Alyssa), his grandchildren Ryan and Lindsay Montgomery, his sister, Barbara Montrowl (Joe), brother-in-law Peter Kehoe (Patti), nephews Chris, Steve and Jason, along with cousins, great nieces and nephews.
Bill was born in Queens NY in 1942 and attended Bishop Loughlin High School and St Francis College where he earned a degree in Accounting. He later earned his Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner designations.
He and Mary moved to Hollywood, FL in 1971 where they raised their family and became active members of Nativity Catholic Church.
He was a managing partner in a national accounting firm and became known as the “King of Clubs” for his expertise in the auditing and management of country clubs. He later opened his own consulting firm (Club Consultants), published numerous articles and was a nationally sought after speaker at industry meetings and conferences. In recognition of his expertise, he was named “Financial Consultant of the Year” by Boardroom Magazine.
He was an avid runner competing in hundreds of races across the country including the NYC and seven other marathons. His love for physical exercise saw him golf often, hike the national parks and the Appalachian Trail, whitewater raft, compete in biatholans and complete a 100 mile bike race.
His unrelenting sense of humor, his moral character and his dedication to his wife, family, friends and colleagues will be his lasting legacy. His family asks that you honor his memory by making a contribution to the Michael J. Fox Foundation or the Lewy Body Dementia Association to help find a cure for these devastating diseases.
