It is with great sadness that the Village of Deerfield announces the death of longtime Village Trustee William “Bill” Seiden, who passed away on February 8 following a brief illness. Bill served the Village with unwavering dedication and commitment for 25 years, leaving an indelible mark on the fabric of our community.
He is remembered for his decades-long commitment to public service. Bill was elected as Village Trustee in 1999 and chaired the Village’s Residential Teardown Taskforce. Prior to his becoming a trustee, he served as a Deerfield Public Library Trustee for six years and acted as the Village’s liaison to the Library after joining the Village Board.
“Bill brought his professional business experience to our Village Board to help us make sound financial decisions,” said Deerfield Mayor Daniel C. Shapiro. “But more than that, Bill cared about Deerfield and wanted to make it a better place for its residents. He was a friend to all of us and will be missed.”
In this time of mourning, our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the Seiden family, friends and loved ones. May we carry on Bill’s memory by following in his example of service and compassion to Deerfield, the town he loved.
