Obituary Condolences

William H. Harrington Jr. Bill grew up in North Hoosick, N.Y., with his brother, John (and wife, Jan, of Stillwater, N.Y.) and sister, Dawn (and husband, Jim Clark, of Hoosick Falls, N.Y. After graduating from Hoosick Falls High School, Bill worked at Polygraphics as a printer, interrupted by two years service in the Army during the Korean War. Bill also worked at Stanley Tools in Shaftsbury and retired from there after 21 years of service. He married Hazel Squiers in 1966 where he joined in the fun and woes of her large family (brothers Ken, Max and David, as well as sisters Esther Gates, Phyllis Main and Joyce Gates). Bill and Hazel loved raising their children, Diane Mead of Bennington and James Harrington (with wife Wanda) of Petersburg, N.Y. Jim brought home three daughters, Stacey and Amanda of Ludlow, Vt. and Jennifer of Petersburgh, N.Y. Jim also has two stepchildren, Andrew and Samantha Duval of Petersburgh, N.Y. Diane has one son, Ian Kilgour Webster, whose father passed away in December of 2010. The streams of Vermont and New York, the woods near his niece Nancy's home, and the forests of the Merck Foundation still whisper with the memories of him hunting with close friend, Ernie Reynolds, his son, Jim, and other family members. What stories they can tell! Bill's wish was to be cremated with no calling hours or funeral. A get together with family and friends will be held at noon August 6th in the Lower Willow Park to celebrate his life. Contributions in his memory may be made to the through Mahar Funeral Home.
