TERRE HAUTE — Rev. William Peil, 88, died Saturday, July 13, 2013. He was a priest of the Diocese of Gary for 59 years, and before that for seven years of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. Born in Fort Wayne in August of 1924, Father Peil, after attending St. Mary’s Elementary School and Central Catholic High School, both in Fort Wayne, attended Sacred Heart Seminary in Fort Wayne, St. Lawrence Seminary in Mount Calvary, Wis., St. Meinrad Seminary in Southern Indiana, and was ordained a priest at the age of 24 on June 11, 1949, at The Cathedral of Fort Wayne.

His assignments of assistant pastor were at St. Mary’s in Crown Point, St Joseph’s in Hammond, St Michael’s in Schereville, (where he also assisted Msgr. Campagna at Hoosiers Boys Town), Queen of all Saints in Michigan City, St. Mary’s in East Chicago, and St. Patrick’s in Chesterton.

Pastorates were at St. Ann’s in Black Oak (Gary) from 1965-67, Holy Rosary in Gary from 1967-71, Sacred Heart in Wanatah, and St. Martin’s in Lacrose from 1973-83, and St. Bridget’s in Hobart from 1983-85. He served on the diocesan Liturgical Commission, and was for a number of years diocesan chaplain of the Legion of Mary and the Christian Family Movement. He was the author of the book, “Teen-age Spirit,” and a number of articles in newspapers and magazines, along with seven booklets on Christian living entitled, “The Rainbow Series.”

After retirement, he spent seven years as a priest in residence at St. Patrick Parish in Terre Haute, and then moved back to his hometown, Fort Wayne, where he provided assistance in parishes when needed.

Survivors include three nephews and a niece, and numerous cousins.

Visitation will be at D.O.
