William J. “Bill” Benner, 58, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at Mid Coast Hospital on October 15th. Bill was born April 12, 1964 in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Edward H. Benner and Marrianne G. (O’Daniels) Benner. He grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey and attended local schools there. The family moved to Maine in 1985.
Bill was employed by many local businesses over the years including Hannaford Supermarket. He was a friendly, quiet man with a soft heart and cared for others when the need arose, including being a caregiver for his mom at home before her passing in 2016. Being a hands-on person, Bill enjoyed working on his cars, handling repairs around the house when required and was a self-sufficient builder when the opportunity presented itself to him.
Bill is survived by his sister, Brenda (Benner) Pipher and her husband Mark of Foxboro, Massachusetts and his sister Deborah (Benner) Harrison of Bristol, Maine, as well as many nephews, nieces and great nephews.
A private graveside service will be held at a later date.
Arrangements are entrusted to Hall Funeral Home and Crematory, 949 Main Street, Waldoboro. Condolences may be shared with the family at www.hallfuneralhomes.com
