William Koontz Obituary,Death- William Russell Koontz III, who was 65 years old at the time of his death, passed away on June 14, 2023 in Frederick, Maryland, and has been laid to rest for all eternity. Bill Koontz was a real native of Frederickton, encompassing all that the term “native” connotes. On January 18, 1958, he was brought into the world by his parents, William Koontz Jr. and Iva Koontz.
They ultimately moved into the house on North Market Street that has been in their family ever since, after spending the majority of their time on the south side of town when the family members were growing up there. Bill was an exceptional athlete throughout his childhood and into his teenage years. He participated in a variety of sports while he was a student at TJ High School and received letterman’s jackets in several of them.
Bill is survived by his devoted and loving wife, Lynn Marie of Frederick, his children William Koontz IV of Frederick and Laura Eichler (Robert Eichler) of Westminster, his sister Paula Caprarola (Drew Caprarola) of Frederick, and his grandchildren Brayden Trupe, Dominic and Julius Rhodes, as well as Preston and Devin Eichler. Bill was born in Frederick, Maryland, and passed away in Westminster, Maryland. The city of Frederick in Maryland is where Bill was born. He is also survived by a huge network of cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and in-laws who will eternally preserve treasured memories of his gentle nature and warm smile. He will be greatly missed by all of those who knew and loved him. Everyone who knew and loved him will grieve his passing in their own unique ways.
Both his grandmother, known as MeMaw, and his granddaughter, known as Kendall Grace Koontz, went away before he did. Both of his parents, William Jr. and Iva Koontz, had already died away by the time he was born. His four dogs, Greta, Katie, Pepper, and Butkus, who have always been a source of joy in his life, will be waiting for him at home when he gets there. They have never left his side.
In place of the more common practice of interment, the cremation, which will take place at the Anatomy Gifts Registry in Hanover, Maryland, will be in charge of the proceedings. It has been decided that a memorial service and a celebration of Bill’s life will take place in Pinecliff Park on the 6th of August. We would like to offer an invitation to everyone who would want to come out and share memories of the good moments they had with this dedicated son, husband, father, grandfather, and friend with us. We hope that you will accept our welcome.
