William "Bill" Wampole Obituary
Wampole, William "Bill" EAST GREENBUSH William "Bill" Wampole, 73, of East Greenbush died peacefully at his home on Friday, August 3, 2018, with his family at his side. Bill was born in Philadelphia and moved early in life to Nassau. He was a contractor and home builder for over 40 years before retiring. He enjoyed spending time with his family on vacation which included trips to Myrtle Beach, Maine and Florida. Bill loved playing in local Texas Hold'em tournaments and the friendships he made. He looked forward to trips to casinos with his recently deceased wife, Barbara. Bill's outgoing personality and general interest in people was evident no matter where he was. He was a friend to many and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Bill is survived by his daughter Elizabeth (Steve) Hart; two sons, Richard (Jody) Broughton and Jack (Shelly) Broughton; and his sister Margaret (Peg) De Champ. He was a proud grandfather of Lacey Davis, Chelsea and Nicolle Broughton, Cassie Broughton, Tyler, Steven Jr., and Maddie Hart; and a great-grandfather of Michaela, Keagan and Killian Davis. Bill's family would like to extend a special thanks to the Hospice team and caregivers which include Karen, Bree, Kim, Paula and Colleen. Family and friends are invited to attend his calling hours on Saturday from 12-3 p.m. at the Wm. J. Rockefeller Funeral Home, 165 Columbia Tpke., Rensselaer, with a memorial service to immediately follow at 3 p.m. Interment will be at the convenience of the family.
