Obituary of William Buren

William Glenn Van Buren, 54, of Downers Grove, IL, died suddenly on his ranch in Kremmling, Colorado on August 3.

Bill was a stock trader by trade, but was passionate about the ranch and all things outdoors. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and skier who lived his life to the fullest each day and was always planning the next adventure. His great conversation and wild stories will be sorely missed.

He was preceded by his mother Gloria Van Buren and his brother Robert Van Buren. Loving husband to his wife Megan Anderson Van Buren of Downers Grove, IL. Devoted father to his daughters Tyler, Regan, and Dakota of Downers Grove, IL. Also survived by father Bill Van Buren and step-mother Carol Van Buren of Holland, MI, sister Alisa Van Buren Calamari, brother in-law Thomas Calamari, niece Paige Calamari of Little Egg Harbor, NJ, nephew Zachary Calamari of Manhattan, NY, uncle Roy Moretz and aunt Gloria Moretz of Cape Coral, FL, cousins Lori Moretz of Brooklyn, NY, Gail Stroh of White Plains, NY, father-in-law Thomas Anderson, mother-in-law Beverly Anderson, and sister-in-law Brittany Anderson of Chagrin Falls, OH, brother-in-law Derek Anderson of Rockingham, NC, brother-in-law Tyler Anderson of Monroeville, PA, as well as too many friends to count.

A celebration of his life is currently being planned and details will be announced soon. In lieu of flowers, an Education Fund for Dakota Van Buren will be set up at 6558 Davane Lane, Downers Grove, Ill., 60516.
