William “Willi” O. Neumann, 91, passed peacefully in Provo, Utah on Sunday, June 26, 2011. Willi was born in Berlin, Germany, raised in Staten Island, and attended the New York Polytechnic Institute and Thunderbird School of Global Management. A proud veteran of World War II, member of the VFW, and a longtime member and Paul Harris Fellow of the Rotary Club, he was always ready with a joke and a bear hug. Willi was also a member of The Strollers community theater of Maplewood, NJ and AFTA. He split his time between Ewa Beach, Hawaii and Berkeley Heights, NJ, where he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, and sharing stories with neighbors on his daily walks for the newspaper. He is survived by his daughter Fiona Ansetta of Carson City, NV, his son CMDR Timothy Neumann, DC, USN and daughter-in-law Angee Neumann of Ewa Beach, HI; his son Michael Neumann and son-in-law John Heist of New York City, NY; his grandchildren Tonia Ansetta of Berkeley Heights, NJ, Anika Ansetta of Berkeley Heights, NJ and Mallory Neumann of Provo, UT; his great grandson Kace Neumann of Provo, UT; his brother Helmut Neumann and sister-in-law Emily Neumann of Albany, NY; nieces and nephews, grand nieces and nephews. He will be interred in Arlington National Cemetery with a memorial service in the fall. We will miss his laughter and hugs.
