Bill with wife Sherry.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Bill Krenz, editor and together with his wife Sherry founded and published Inside Archery and Bowhunt America magazines.

The archery industry knew him as an industry leader, a brilliant writer and editor who had years of experience working for some of the top companies in the industry. Bill was a devoted husband, father and grandfather, a passionate outdoorsman who lived and breathed bowhunting, a mentor, a source of inspiration and a friend. Words cannot express how deeply he will be missed.

Bill is survived by his wife, Sherry; his children, Tracey, Tyler, Tara, Travis and daughter-in law Heather; and his four grandchildren, Rachael, Colton, Maquel and Isabelle.

Bill celebrated his 58th birthday yesterday.

From all of our family at we wish to extend to Sherry, the family and employees our most sincere condolences.
