Aug 15,1924---Feb 19,2021

William F. Horseman, Jr., 96, passed away peacefully in his home of 63 years on Friday, February 19, 2021. Bill was born on August 15, 1924 to William F. (Sr.) & Frieda Horseman. Bill worked for 49 years as a machinist at Electrical & Magneto Service Company and was a lifelong member of Zion United Church of Christ in Kansas City, KS. Bill married Barbara Smith on December 26, 1963 and together they raised two daughters.
Bill’s life centered around his family and his faith. He enjoyed teaching Sunday school, singing in the church choir, serving as a church council member, spending Sunday afternoons with extended family and countless hours tending his beautiful flower gardens. Bill is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Barbara Smith Horseman; sisters, Dorothy (Paul) Gunderman, Mildred (Norman) Whitton, Frieda Horseman and Helen (Ben) Painter and brother, Robert (Henrietta) Horseman. He is survived by his daughters, Megan (Daniel) Burdolski and Jill Horseman; grandchildren, Emily & Nicholas Burdolski and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Faith Hospice for their service during Bill’s final months. A private family graveside service will be held later this spring. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the Great Plains SPCA.

Bill was a significant part of my memories of Zion church. In addition to teaching Sunday School I remember him on the softball field. The Horseman family stretched throughout Zion. He was the same generation as my parents, and I miss all those that shared the time in KCK.
