William E. "Bill" Clapp- 77 passed away on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at the Hospice Care Center in Port Orange following a brief battle with cancer. Born May 25, 1935 in Goffstown, NH to Helen Waite and William A. Clapp, Bill was an Air Force veteran serving during the Korean War and member of the Port Orange VFW. A bookkeeper by trade, he retired from the Daytona Beach YMCA in 1998. Bill retired for a second time in 2012 from the Volusia Teachers Organization in 2012. He was the Senior Warden at St. Luke's Anglican Church, a loyal UAW 2278 member and Financial Secretary for 13 years and a life-long Red Sox and Patriots fan. He was an avid bowler and very proud of his perfect "300" score and ring. Bill was a loving husband and father and leaves behind his wife Judi of 36 years, eight children: Jerry, Verne, Raymond, Dena, Steve, John, Joy and James and their spouses. His extended family includes 19 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren. We will celebrate his life on Friday, March 15, 10:00 a.m. at St. Luke's Anglican Church, 815 Taylor Rd., Port Orange, FL 32127. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Luke's or Hospice Care, 3800 Woodbriar Tr., Port Orange, FL 32129.
