Pavlak, William (Bill) 12/26/1947 - 4/10/2021 Hopkins William (Bill) Pavlak age 73 passed away April 10, 2021. Surviving are his wife of 48 years, Laura and a son, Charles. Bill owned and operated his own dumpster business (Chuck It) for the past 20 years; in the winter he was contracted out for snow removal for several areas in Grand Rapids. He will be most remembered for his up beat personality and crazy joke telling to anyone who would listen. He loved to make people laugh so he often would wear t-shirts with hilarious sayings, he had a spider hat with dangly legs he would wear around the end of October, and at Christmas he would bring out the reindeer hat with antlers decorated with ornaments and a red nose that would flash on and off. People loved his Spirit! He was brilliant when it came to inventing or repairing just about anything, he was already to help those in need of his assistance; he carried most of his "Fix-all tools" in and on the back of his truck. A site for sore eyes, but made him ready for any challenge he would ever encounter. He is the sixth of ten children of Emil and Julia (Arbanas) Pavlak who have preceded him in death, along with three brothers, Randy, Dennis, and Tom Pavlak, three sisters, Patricia (Wellington-Davis), Juliann (Brenner), and Janet Roblyer. He has three surviving siblings, Teri (Dimock), Michael Pavlak, and Scott Pavlak. Nothing lasts forever, and all things must come to an end; for Bill, this was his time to say "Goodbye" to his family and friends, but most of all, to be at rest with his Maker who he loved and trusted in. Funeral services are pending for a later date. To put it in Bill's words, "We'll go from there!"
