William L. Stagemeyer, age 47, of Omaha, Nebraska passed away Thursday, March 19, 2015 at his home. He was born on October 23, 1967 in Oxford, Nebraska to Owen and Shirley (McMains) Stagemeyer.

Will grew up in Arapahoe and graduated from Arapahoe High School with the class of 1986. After attending college, he moved to Lincoln, Nebraska to work at Diamond Vogel Paint. In 1991, he started working for Glidden Paint in the commercial/wholesale division. He would later move to Omaha and work for Wesco Electrical Wholesale Company. In 2007, using his experience and connections with contractors, he and his business partner started “Husker Winlectric Company”, supplying contractors with wholesale electrical material. As president of the company, he was very passionate and a very hard worker, recognized for his successes in the business by many. Will had many friends in the industry as well a large family of friends in Omaha and across the country.

Will enjoyed sports; whether it was attending games or discussing it with family, or coaching his daughter. He was very involved in fitness and enjoyed working out. He enjoyed cheering on his favorite teams; Nebraska Cornhuskers, Dallas Cowboys, & St. Louis Cardinals. Visits back home to Arapahoe were very special to him, to see family, to hunt, and to watch nieces and nephews participate in activities. The farm was Will’s getaway from his normally fast paced world.

He is survived by his daughter Emily Stagemeyer of Omaha, Nebraska
