William Lathrop Huntington III Obituary
William Lathrop Huntington III September 24, 1949-September 13, 2013 OAKDALE - William Lathrop Huntington III, 63, died unexpectedly on Friday at his home. He was born in Norwich on September 24, 1949 to the late William and Eleanor (Mueller) Huntington Jr. "Bill" was a graduate of Norwich Free Academy in 1967 and Rutgers University in 1971. On September 15, 1972 he married his beloved wife Susan (Piazza) in Groton. Together they raised their family while living in the area. Bill worked for the State of CT Dept. of Finance & Control as an Investigator, Mallon Chevrolet as Finance & Insurance Manager, and later, Commercial & Fleet Sales, and a myriad of positions for General Motors Acceptance Corp., until his retirement. Civically he was involved as a member of the Central Baptist Church of Norwich, the former Lodge of Elks, was treasurer of Montville Babe Ruth Baseball, and was an active member of Montville High School Booster Club while his children attended there. He was an avid Red Sox and New England Patriots fan and enjoyed watching his children and grandchildren play sports. Of all his achievements, accomplishments, and involvement in organizations and clubs, what brought him the most joy was time spent with family.
