William “Billy” Noel Stange, 65, of Victoria, passed away surrounded by his family on July 6, 2019. Billy was born and raised in Victoria on March 2, 1954 to Neydine Dietzel Stange and the late Herbert Stange. Billy was a lifetime rancher and outdoor enthusiast. He loved his 4-legged babies (cows), always ready to catch a fish and go hunting. He always looked forward to the annual fishing weekend with the boys and grandkids around his birthday, and family dove hunt on opening weekend in Kenedy. He had a huge love for operating heavy equipment, may sound crazy but he found it therapeutic. Most of all he loved having all his family around and any reason to kick back and have a drink and solve the world’s problems. Billy is survived by his wife of 44 years, Scindy Asbeck Stange; daughter, Skandy Schmidt (Troy); sons, William N. Stange Jr. (Tara), Wade N. Stange (Shelby) all of Victoria; mother, Neydine Dietzel Stange of Victoria; brother, Curtis D. Stange of Victoria; grandchildren, Tristyn and Shiyla Schmidt, Coy and Shay Stange. Visitation for family and friends will be Wednesday, July 10, 2019 from 5:30-7 PM at Rosewood Funeral Chapel with a Memorial service to immediately follow at 7 PM. A Celebration of Life reflecting Billy’s memories will be held on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 6 to 9 Pm at the Stange’s home in Schroeder for all friends and family who would like to attend.

To all the family,
Billy & I shared many memories from the time we met in our early years. Our friendship grew as we worked for his grandpa, Noel Dietzel, hauling hay, building fence, working cattle, shocking corn stalks, spraying brush, and any other chores that came up on the ranch. It was hard work, but we also enjoyed our time off, including swimming in Coleto & Turkey creek, riding horses, dove hunting, and later on, dancing at the many old dance halls in the surrounding counties. And then there was college, but way too many stories to tell about (and some not to mention). He was "My Best Friend". I will truly miss him, but I will always have those memories that we shared together. The last words that I spoke to Billy were to save a place for me in the Kingdom of Heaven, and I know that he will. My condolences to all of the family. May God bless you and shine his light down on you in this time of sorrow.

Billy,
I met you as a stranger, then took you as my friend.
Our friendship is something that will never end.
May the Lord be with You and You Rest in Peace.

Scindy and Family,

So many good memories of Billy at friend gatherings and dances during the good ole days. Billy always had a smile and a hug for you no matter what. I know you will miss him dearly. My prayers are with you.
