William (Willie) F. Wunch, 67, formerly of Wilkes-Barre, passed into eternal life on Tuesday, March 25, 2014, at Gracedale Nursing Home, Nazareth.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was born in Wilkes-Barre on Aug. 13, 1946, the only child to the late Frank and Mildred Philo Wunch. He was educated in the Wilkes-Barre City school system.
William is remembered by those who knew and loved him best as being a simple and interesting individual who made many acquaintances along his life's journey. He was a wealth of knowledge that he would share freely with those around him. In his younger years, he was an avid ham radio operator, and loved to travel. He could recall many aspects of his trips and the demographics of the various cities he visited. Willie had a wonderful sense of humor, and enjoyed joking with his family and friends including cousins Sharon and Alexis. He loved to receive visitors, especially if they came fortified with Dr. Pepper, Chips Ahoy or his beloved cherry-flavored tobacco.
Surviving are several cousins, including Marjorie Gillman and Sharon Shipula and her husband, David, of Hanover Township, along with their family.
Willie's family would like to gratefully acknowlege the staffs of Mountainview Personal Care Home, Riverstone Manor and most recently Gracedale Nursing Home for their caring professionalism shown him during his stays.
Memorial graveside committal services for William will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday at the family lot in Fern Knoll Burial Park, Midland Avenue, Dallas, with the Rev. Joel Stauffer, pastor of the First Church of Christ, Wilkes-Barre, officiating.
The John V. Morris Family Funeral Homes Inc. of Wilkes-Barre is honored to care for William and his family at this time.
