William Otto Junker, III November 15, 1953 - July 12, 2020 AUBURN, AL - William Otto Junker, III, passed away on July 12 from complications of Alzheimer's disease. He was in the care of the Hospice Angels at Bethany House Hospice Care in Auburn, Alabama. He graduated from Presbyterian College and retired from Philip Morris, USA. His proudest achievement in life was a loving, happy family. William is survived by his loving wife, Deborah, and wonderful caring children Melissa and Jay Williams of Auburn, Alabama, and Christen Kellett and Jacob Lowry and infant grandson William Walker Lowry of Atlanta. He will be sorely missed by his sister Charlene Adolph (husband, Keith, and children Lauren and Kevin) of Foster City, California. Cousins Edward and Kaylin Frank Mitchell, Los Angeles, and Richard and Deirdre Mitchell (daughters Kelsey and Leah), Groton, Massachusetts, feel this loss deeply. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorial gifts to Hospice Angels, 1171 Gatewood Drive, Building 100, Auburn, Alabama, 36830. These Angels took such wonderful care to us all during a difficult time. Services will be announced at a later time.

William was a great example for all of us. His gentle, kind and humorous approach to life was real and refreshing. William was a great friend to me during my many years with Philip Morris USA. He always made sure people came first and demonstrated that commitment in the leadership roles he served. I credit William with the planning and coordination for my surprise retirement send off. He was great friend indeed. I will miss miss him.

What a wonderful childhood I had. William and I were like brothers as kids. (He is in the red shirt in the picture.) We had so many adventures as kids. We built many club houses and forts. My prayers are with the family.
