Bill McGinty 1927-2012
The Guest Book is expired.
Bill McGinty, age 84, passed away peacefully in his sleep on August 22, 2012. Bill was self-employed most of his working years. After retirement, he worked part-time at a major home improvement store until his health began to fail. Working was his passion, whether on the job or in his home and yard. He always strived for perfection regardless of the chore. Bill was a member of East Brent Baptist Church.
Bill never met a stranger. He enjoyed people immensely and never tired of talking to them. His outlook on life was always positive and he kept a smile on his face.
He is survived by his wife Barbara, daughter Tina McGinty, step-son Mike Blakely, granddaughters Brandell Flores, Kellie Daughtry (Clay) and Lauren Combs, grandson Marcus Blakely and four great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, siblings, and daughter Deborah Yeomans.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, August 25, 2012 at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North, Cantonment with Brother Dale Patterson officiating. Visitation for family and friends will be from 10:00 a.m. Saturday until the service begins.
