WILLIAM THOMAS HIRSCHFELDER, JR.
June 15, 1960 – March 20, 2022
Life is a Journey, William T. Hirschfelder, Jr. was born in San Antonio June 15, 1960 to William T. Hirschfelder Sr. and Ann Chamberlain. After 17 months of fighting cancer and its side effects, he peacefully made his final journey home on Sunday morning March 20, 2022. He was not alone, and God was there to lead him peacefully home.
“The Dash” in his life included growing up in Huntsville area. When young he was King of the Parade in Trinity. He went to Huntsville High School and made many friends and a character was based on him in the movie Dazed & Confused. He and Lisa met as she was at SHSU and became friends first and their relationship progressed from there.
They married and built their life and family in Katy, Texas. There was nothing he cherished more than his wife Lisa, daughter Kayce, son Kyle, and the light of his life, grandson Cooper.
William worked for the family business Hard Times BBQ until changing careers. He worked as a journeyman electrician and became part of the West Houston Electric family for 27 years.
William loved the tradition of Katy football and all the values it instilled in his kids and the friendships made along the way. William enjoyed hunting when younger but didn’t get to go as much as he got older.
He was at peace when on the water fishing with his friends. He kept asking his doctors when he could go fishing and they finally said yes. The only stipulation was he could not touch the bait or fish. Of course, Captain Leb was a true friend and did all the work. God worked wonders that day and led them to the best fishing spot and William had the biggest smile as he showed off their catch of the day.
William’s other relaxation was playing cards with his friends. He knew once he had the stem cell transplant that he would not be able to go. He went to Coushatta on the weekends before the transplant and if you know William, he tried to convince them to keep his gold card status.
William chose the road less traveled and made his own path. He loved his family and friends and would lend a helping hand when you least expected it. You make choices in life and he lived life’s journey with no regrets.
