By Committee Chair Kati Townsley
June 19, 2019

The Reese & Community Volunteer Fire Company is sad to announce the passing of Life Member William J. "Mr. Bill" McKenzie, who passed away yesterday at the age of 97.

William J. McKenzie (Mr. Bill), of Finksburg, passed away Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at Carroll Hospice Dove House. He was born May 31, 1922 in St. Clare, Pennsylvania, and was the son of the late George and Mary (Bobby) McKenzie. He was the cherished and devoted husband of Reese VFC member Wilma I. McKenzie.

Bill was a highly decorated Veteran of the United States Army where he received the Distinguished Service Cross (among other medals) for his service during World War II, where he participated in Normandy Invasion and the Battle of the Bulge.

He was employed by the Social Security Administration in the administrative department until his retirement.

Bill joined the Reese & Community Volunteer Fire Company in 1999 and had served as our Historian and as a member of the Fire Police. He loved Thursday night BINGO's where he would serve as our Kitchen cashier, greeting customers with a smile and a joke.

He was a member of the St. John Catholic Church, and frequent harmonica entertainer at the local Walmart.

Surviving in addition to his wife, Wilma, is his sister, Marie Geist, of Shenandoah, Pennsylvania; and numerous nieces and nephews and wonderful friends.
In addition to his parents, Bill was predeceased by brothers Jack McKenzie, Daniel “Chip” McKenzie, Joe McKenzie, Frances McKenzie, Sam McKenzie and Jim McKenzie.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 27th, 2019 at Reese and Community Volunteer Fire Company, 1745 Baltimore Boulevard, Finksburg.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Reese and Community Volunteer Fire Company in Mr. Bill’s honor. Arrangements provided by Pritts Funeral Home and Chapel. Online condolences may be offered at www.prittsfuneralhome.com.

Please keep his wife, Life Member Wilma McKenzie in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
