Obituary

William "Bill" Henry Springer, 77, of Route 23A in Catskill passed away peacefully in his home on March 17, 2016.

William was born to the late Robert and Charlotte Springer of Catskill, NY. At the age of 18, he decided to enlist in the Marine Corp. It was in the Corps he discovered his other passion in life, wood working. While serving his country he learned the carpentry trade. When he finally chose to leave the Marines he decided to make a living doing what he loved and became a carpenter.

It was around this time he married Margaret Mary Rocco, of Catskill with whom he had two children. With his family growing, the opportunity arose to apply for a job as head of engineering at Greene County Memorial Hospital and was immediately offered the position. After many years of service to the hospital he retired.

Not being a person who can idly sit around, Bill went back to his one true passion, wood working. He took a managerial position at Wood Workers Warehouse where he worked until he was no longer able to do so.

Bill is survived by his children, Jason Michael Springer of Catskill NY and William Chris Springer and his wife Jennifer Springer, both of Cary, NC and three grandchildren, Emma Kate, Landon, and Adalyn, also from Cary NC. He is predeceased by two brothers, Robert Springer of Averill Park NY and Frank Springer of Catskill NY

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday from 10:00 – 12:00 at Millspaugh Camerato Funeral Home, 139 Jefferson Hgts, Catskill. A funeral service will then be conducted at 12:00. Interment will follow in Town of Catskill Cemetery.
