Obituary of William (Bill) Pine

William Pine (Bill) passed away on February 7th, 2023, at the age of 77. He was a resident of Park View Senior Living in Buffalo, MN.

Born on March 22, 1945 and adopted by Paul Pine and Anne (Moe) Pine of Madison, WI in 1947.

Bill graduated magna cum laude from Augsburg Seminary in 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theology and was later ordained by the Lutheran Church. After working for several years as a Lutheran pastor he embarked on a career in the financial industry until his retirement.

Bill was gifted at most anything he chose to pursue. He had a great passion for the outdoors, animals, and interior design. He was well known for breeding and showing both Persian cats and Doberman dogs. He loved the North Shore of MN and built two amazing homes there that he designed and curated. He also had a great sense of humor and will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.

Bill is survived by his former wife Jill Taylor and their children William Todd Pine and Heather Elizabeth (Pine) Albertus. He is predeceased by his daughter, Tonja Rene (Pine) Brummer and his Mother Anne (Moe) Pine.

Bill requested that no funeral service be held but to remember him in your hearts. If you would like to give a donation in his memory, please do so with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) or a charity of your choice. Caring for animals was always close to his heart and would be much appreciated. Arrangements are under the direction of the Cremation Society of Minnesota.
