WILLIAM W. WORKMAN - CORNWALL - The Workman family is saddened to announce the unexpected death of William "Bill" Wellington Workman on March 8, 2013. Bill was born Sept. 23, 1986, in Burlington. A graduate of Champlain Valley Union High School and a veteran of the U.S. Army serving at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C., Bill was an avid outdoorsman and athlete. He enjoyed and excelled at cycling, hiking, and mountaineering. Bill had a love of history, particularly military history, and an interest in travel, law, stone masonry, and classical and Celtic folk music. His ability to respectfully and eloquently outwit his opponent in an intellectual debate was and will remain unrivaled and provided many opportunities for laughter. His quick wit, eager smile, and wry humor will be missed by those who mourn his passing. These include his Labrador, Tain; his mother, Wenda; sister, Heather; and brother, Christopher Workman; grandmother, Bette Workman of Underhill; aunts, Cindy Lindman of California, and Sandra Workman-Miles of New York; uncles, Scott Workman of Essex Junction, William Workman of Williston, and David Workman of Burlington; their families, including his cousins; and anyone else whose life he touched with his honesty, generosity, and integrity. He will be sorely missed. Memorial services will be held at the The United Church of Underhill on Sunday, March 17, 2013, at 2 p.m.
