Bill was born November 7, 1962, in Syracuse, New York, and passed away September 3, 2021, in Leesville, LA at the age of 58. He was raised in upstate New York and served in the United States Army. In the summer of 1981, Bill was stationed at Fort Polk and served there for three years. He met his wife of six years, Rhonda Ann Neal Klesko, in 1982, and they were married January 21, 1983. In 1984, Bill started his first plumbing business "Sewers and Drains' which later became "W.C. Klesko Plumbing". Bill and Rhonda had four children, William, Eric, Matthew, and Rachel. He loved spending time with his family and adored his grand babies. Bill would often watch cartoons with his grand babies not only because they wanted to but also because he was a big kid himself. Food was his life, and you rarely saw him without a fork in his hand. Bill will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William Charles Klesko Sr. and Sylvia Keenan Klesko and brother, Howard Klesko.

Those left to cherish their memories of Bill are his sons, William Charles Klesko III (Sami) of Jacksonville, FL, Eric Klesko (Christa Harper) of Leesville, LA, and Matthew Klesko (Nicole) of Blakely, GA; daughter, Rachel Burns (Cody) of Leesville, LA; grandchildren, Devon Klesko, Madison Klesko, Maddy Moretz, Tanner Klesko, Camden Klesko, Kaylee Klesko, Kohen Klesko, Kylan Klesko, Mason Burns, and Charleigh Burns; brother, Michael Klesko; sister, Theresa Durfee (Paul) of DeRidder, LA and Elizabeth of Syracuse; ex-wife, Rhonda Ann Neal Klesko of Leesville, LA; and a host of extended family and friends.
