Bill Wanamaker, 81, of West Palm Beach, went home to be with his Lord on June 22, 2017. Beloved husband of Mary "Betty" Wanamaker for 59 glorious years. Originally from Suffern, New York, he semi-retired to West Palm Beach, Florida. Survived by his daughter, Cindy Pelliccia of Fort Myers, Fl.; sons, Arthur "Bill" (Beverly) Wanamaker, III of Stony Point, NY, Timothy (Debbie) of Monroe, NY, Thomas of West Palm Beach, Kenneth (Michele) of Highland Falls, NY; his grandchildren, Kimberly, Christopher, William, Nicholas, Paul, Jennifer, Daniel, Malia; and his great-granddaughter, Emma. Bill served active duty in the U.S. Army; belonged to the Carpenters Local 964, and was employed by Anthony Linguanti & Co. in New York for over 30 years. In Florida, he worked as a Superintendent of Maintenance at the Citizens Building on Narcissus Street in West Palm Beach for 13 years before retiring. Bill's favorite hobby was spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-granddaughter. He taught them to love the sport of fishing along with the love of every other hobby he could share. His stories will live on forever. As a father, he was his children's first hero. Grandpa Bill was a great role model for his family. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Trustbridge Hospice.
