William Carl “Bill” Lallman 74, of Merrifield, MN passed away at his home on Horseshoe Lake July 7, 2020. He was born on October 8, 1945 in Omaha Nebraska to Norris and Alice (Von Seggern) Lallman of Hooper, NE.

He married Janice McClaran of Cody, Nebraska on December 27, 1966.
Bill served in the Army for three years with tours of duty in Vietnam and Germany. Following his military service, he and his wife joined her family’s ranching business in Cherry County, NE where Bill took pride in improving the quality of the herd and good stewardship of the land. When health issues forced an early retirement, they moved to Minnesota where he worked for a short time in real estate and with friends in the construction business.
Bill enjoyed golf, Husker football, Twins baseball and always a great dog. He valued family and friends above all else and will be remembered for his honesty and sense of humor. He was a member of the American Legion, Masonic Lodge, Zuhrah Shrine, and Crosslake Presbyterian Church.
He is survived by his wife Janice, daughter Kara of St Paul, MN, and sister Ann Jessop of Omaha. He was preceded in death by his parents.
