William George Starr

William G. Starr, age 68, 95 Sugar Camp Road, Danville, passed away peacefully at his home at 11:50 p. m. Thursday, September 1, 2016, after an illness of two years.

Born in Liberty Township, Montour County on December 9, 1947, he was a son of the late George W. and Beverly (Schenck) Starr. He  resided in the Danville area his entire life and  was a 1966 graduate of Danville High School.

Bill was employed by Interstate Battery Co., Hughesville for 28 years, retiring in 2012.

He was an avid hunter and outdoorsman, and played softball earlier in his life. He was especially proud of his daughter and three granddaughters.

Bill proudly served with the US Army in Vietnam from August, 1967 to July, 1969.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Susan McCarty.
