William E. “Bill” Kvochick

February 26, 1965 ‒ June 16, 2017

Bellville, Ohio

BELLVILLE: William E. “Bill” Kvochick peacefully passed away at home on Friday, June 16, 2017 following an extended illness.

Bill was born February 26, 1965 in Mansfield the son of Jack Edward Kvochick, Sr. & Janice Fay McMahon. He graduated with the class of 1984 from Clear Fork and attended college at Knox County Career Center.

His drive to help others led him to be a police officer and he worked for the Bellville Police Department for 14 years. One day, Lieutenant Kvochick pulled over a man for speeding and discovered he was a nurse on his way to an emergency helicopter. Bill gave him a police escort to get to the chopper as fast as possible and in return, was offered to ride along on the call. He was hooked. Bill went back to school for nursing and worked 9 years as a nurse in the Emergency Room at OhioHealth (formerly MedCentral) Hospital.

Bill was a big fan of Ohio sports teams including the Cavs, Indians, and especially the Cleveland Browns. He was a season pass holder at Cedar Point almost every season and enjoyed taking his girls there and riding the roller coasters. He will be remembered for his sense of humor. He was easy going and even tempered; he believed everyone deserved a second chance. Bill touched a lot of lives at work, at church, and at home. He will be dearly missed.

Bill was a member of Storyside (former CitiChurch) in Bellville where he served as an usher and previously attended Crossroads Community Church.

He is survived by two daughters who meant the world to him Jaci Kvochick (Jeff Thiele) and Shelbi Kvochick (fiancé Andy Pylant) all of Bellville; his grandson Jaxton Thiele; granddaughter Jayla Thiele; two sisters Jeanette McKeivier of Chillicothe, and Lisa (Bobby) Fowler of Youngsville, North Carolina; nephews Nick Doup, Robbie Fowler, and Wayne Fowler; niece Autumn McKeivier; along with numerous friends and extended family members.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents.

Friends may call 2-7 p.m. Wednesday, June 21, 2017 in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home (81 Mill Rd) where a celebration of life service will begin at 7 p.m. lead by Pastor Adam Drinkard.

In lieu of flowers, his family encourages contributions to Snyder Funeral Homes.

    Your Dad was an amazing friend for many, many years. He adored the two of you with all the love a father has in his heart. He did an amazing job raising the two of you to become parents of your own children. Bill was ecstatic when he became a Grandpa. We had many chats before Jaxton William was born. He anxiously waited for those labor pains to begin. He loved his grandbabies as he loved both of you and was always so proud to be your Dad and a Grandpa. Me, your Dad and Annie will have to wait to ride those coasters together.
