Obituary for William "Bill" Kenneth Hainje

William "Bill" Kenneth Hainje, 73, of Lafayette passed away peacefully, with his daughter Christy at his side.

Bill was born on August 28, 1944 in Lafayette to the late Herb "Herbie" and Edith Nelson Hainje. A 1963 Lafayette Jeff High School grad, Bill excelled in baseball and making friends.

Bill married Marcy Jo Hoggatt in 1970 and had two daughters, Christy and Tamara.

Bill owned Lori Lee Estates, a mobile home park in the center of Lafayette but was best known for his years as the manager at Arni’s where he worked for almost 30 years. Bill was a very active member in our community and truly loved all of his many friends and large family. Bill lived his life to the fullest and will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

Like his dad, Bill was very proud to be a member of the Tippecanoe Shrine Club, the Murat Temple, and Battleground Lodge 313. The friendships he developed with his Masonic Brothers meant the world to Bill. Bill was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed pheasant hunting and fishing.

Surviving with his wife, Marcy Hainje is his daughter, Christy Jo (Bill) Wilson and his sister, Karen (Larry) Kult. Also surviving are his grandchildren, Hunter and Ellie Skelton and Cayenne and Rowan Wilson.

He is preceded in death by a daughter, Tamara Lee Hainje.
