This memorial website was created to celebrate the life and preserve our recollections of Bill Tauer. Please join us in keeping his memory alive by sharing your favorite stories, photos and memorable moments.

William M. Tauer left us on December 21, 2013 at the age of 66. In Berwyn, IL to parents Dorothy Jean & William Tauer, he was born on October 6th, 1947 an only child, but raised with abundant extended family nearby. Many aunts, uncles and cousins to get together and play cards during the habitual family gatherings.

After graduating from Lyons Township High School in 1964, Bill attained a Bachelor of the Arts from Ithaca College in 1970 with a major in Music. He later went on to achieve his MBA in Accounting from Keller Graduate School of DeVry University in 1989. Professionally Bill was a Manufacturer's Representative for the music industry and spent the majority of his career with one company, Saint Louis Music. Since 1980, our father had been a top sales rep for the company based in St. Louis, his territory in the Chicagoland area. In the 1990s he moved his younger children with him to Colorado, thus becoming the "Lone Wolf of the West", or Regional Sales Manager for the western territory. Within a couple years of being a District Manager for Loud Technologies in 2006, he decided to start his own company. In 2008 he began Power Sound Marketing and remains as the mascot.

He is survived by his 4 children: Jennifer Elle Tauer, Lindsey White, Natalie & Peter Tauer, 2 sons in-law: Tony Accardi & Dave White and 4 granddaughters: Teresa & Gianna Accardi and Mia & Jordyn White. His company Power Sound (Music) Marketing will now be operated primarily by his daughter, Natalie Tauer. She has been and will continue to take calls on his phone line which therefore excludes us from being able to bury it with his remains as we have all threatened to do so. ;)

Our father was a huge inspiration to his children, especially with his career in the music industry. It has always been a childhood dream of Natalie's to take over Bill's business, and a few short months ago we began to take steps towards that eventual goal. Natalie was able to spend 3 months traveling on the road with Bill before she was thrust into the role of major responsibility. As a family we support her and trust that she will do her best to keep Power Music Marketing alive.

Ultimately, our father will be laid to rest in a crypt in Arizona, a place he had always revered with such warmth and acceptance. This will be a very small and private ceremony to take place with only the immediate family members later this year. We will be sure to post pictures of the event.

Before taking his remains to Arizona we would like to have a memorial service for friends, family and acquaintances locally in the Denver Metro area. We plan on having a church service at 11:00 am on February 22, 2014 at Holy Love Lutheran Church, 4210 S. Chambers Rd., Aurora, CO 80015. Please email admin@powersoundmarketing.com to RSVP so we have an idea of how many people we should be prepared to host.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to The William Tauer Irrevocable Trust by going into any Chase bank, or you can mail to: 16748 E. Smoky Hill Rd., Unit 9C, PMB 332, Centennial, CO 80015. We very much appreciate anything you are able to give. Thank you.

We are trying to raise money to throw him a good-bye party. My father wrote in his memoirs that life shouldn't always be taken so seriously, it is like a joke, the point is to laugh as much as possible.
