1934 - 2016 William G. Corr (Bill), of New Hampton, NH passed away on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia New Hampshire. He was 82. Bill was born in Missoula, Montana, a son of Daniel J. and Donatienne (Plourde) Corr. He is survived by his wife, Deborah Corr of New Hampton and by his three stepsons, Cabot, Gardner and Eliot Orton, his daughter-in-law, Julie Orton and two grandchildren, Leo and Ella Orton all of Vermont. He is also survived by his brother and sister in law, Jim and Peg Corr, of Dillon, Montana, Sister Marie Corr of Dubuque, Iowa, sister and brother in law, Eileen and Ken Willette of Missoula, Montana and sister Donna Mae Byler of Mesa, Arizona, as well as many nieces and nephews. Bill completed his undergraduate work at Carroll College in Helena, Montana, graduating with a double major in philosophy and English education. He also attended the University of Montana Law School on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. From law school, Bill went to the Acquinas Institute of Theology in Dubuque, Iowa and was ordained a Catholic Priest in 1961. He taught Psychology and Philosophy at Carroll College before going to Fordham University in New York where he received a Masters in Clinical Psychology. He completed institute training at the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry and completed further graduate work at Teachers College, Columbia University and The New School. He received several academic awards, including being listed in Who's Who of American Colleges and Universities. In 1967 he was invited to give the invocation and benediction at the 25th anniversary of Senate Majority Leader, Mike Mansfield. Bill was an associate member of the American Psychological Association and a member of the American Association of University Professors. Before he retired Bill was in private as well as public practice as a psychotherapist/counselor. He also served in several small Congregational Churches in Vermont as part time Pastor. At retirement he was the Senior Outpatient Clinician at Health Care and Rehabilitation Services of SE Vermont. Bill was a man of intelligence, faith, courage, commitment, compassion, prayer and grace. As such Bill was chosen in 2003 to lead a twenty-member congregational clergy group as their priest. He served in that capacity in the Southeast Association within the Vermont Conference of the United Church of Christ. He made his way to Vermont every month after Bill and Deborah moved to New Hampshire in 2006 after building their beautiful home on the site of the family's camp on Lake Waukewan. Bill rowed a shell on the water for many years and loved being part of all the activities of his stepsons, their families and many friends on the Lake.
