Obituary for William Sethmann

William (Bill) Sethmann, 66, of Deposit, NY passed away unexpectedly on October 3, 2018. He is survived by his sister, Louise Sethmann of Oregon, cousins in Kentucky, and a few close friends. He was predeceased by his parents, Martin and Betty Sethmann.

Bill was born in Liberty, NY and moved to Deposit as a young child. He attended Syracuse University graduating with multiple engineering degrees. He then became an independent contractor. He had love for anything mechanical. If you could not fix it, Bill sure could. His passion, however, was with airplanes, and he was in the process of building his second one. Bill was a very intelligent man and would lend a helping hand to anyone. You could often see Bill walking around town, reading the newspapers at the local convenient store, or eating at his favorite place in town, Wendy’s.

Bill was a dedicated member of the Deposit Emergency Squad and also a member of the White Birch Airport.

What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose,
for all that we love deeply becomes part of us.
By Helen Keller
