William “Bill” Whitman Carmichael Sr.
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine – William “Bill” Whitman Carmichael Sr. of Presque Isle, Maine, age 78, peacefully passed away March 30, 2018, with loved ones by his side.
Bill is survived by his daughter, Bessie Small and her husband, Gregory, and their children, Gage and Kelsey; a son, William Carmichael Jr. and his wife, Maureen, and children, Ethan and Nolan; stepdaughters, Julie Kelley, Jenny Johnson and Jaylene Dill; as well as grandchildren, Janel Lucas and Victor Rouland; and a great-grandson, Skylar Lucas. In addition, he is survived by sisters, Annette, Pearl, Linda and Jeannie; a brother, Marshall; as well as several nieces and nephews, who loved their “Uncle Bill.” Bill was predeceased by his mother, Bessie and father, Milford “Miff” Carmichael; his beloved wife, Pauline; son, Tommy Dill; daughter, Wilma Sywanyk; sister, Vernna; and brothers, Mickey, Harley and Rodney.
Bill was proud of the time he served in the U.S. Army and spreading lime in the fields of Aroostook County. He loved hunting and fishing, and loved to tell the tales of his adventures, often leading to him laughing so hard he couldn’t finish. His rhymes and jokes will be missed by all that knew him.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to his nephew, Harley Carmichael Jr., who selflessly helped our Dad whenever called upon.
The date for a spring graveside service to be held at St. Mary’s Church in Presque Isle will be announced at a later time.
