William became President of the Lemp Brewery in 1904. Prohibition brought an end to the brewery and it was sold in 1922. Shortly after the sale, Billy committed suicide in his office in the mansion. This was downstairs from where his father had killed himself 18 years earlier. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
