Will was born to Steven

and Catherine (Bishop)

Zaiser on Sept. 8, 1983, in

Devils Lake, N.D. In 1987

the family moved to Far-

go. Will attended Fargo

public schools, graduating

from Fargo South High

School in 2002. On his

21st birthday, Sept. 8,

2004, he and Nikki Rentz

became parents to a son,


As a kid Will tried

many sports before set-

tling on tennis. Many of

his closest friends were

members of the Fargo

South Tennis Team. He

was a good doubles

partner and served as

co-captain of the team his

senior year.

Will was most recently

employed at Serenity As-

sisted Living in Dilworth,

Minn., where he was

loved by residents and

staff. Prior to that he

worked as a houseman for

Days Inn, Fargo. His

co-workers became dear

friends who enjoyed his

warmth, his wit, his kind-

ness, and were always

there for him.

Will had an infectious

smile, a great sense of

humor, and loved spend-

ing time with family and

friends. He liked watching

movies, playing cards,

fishing, trying new foods,

collecting cool shoes, and

romping with his dogs,

Mayes and Skyla.

Sadly, Will struggled

with alcoholism for many

years. Despite his own ef-

forts, and those of many

who loved and cared for

him, in the end alcohol

took his life.
