William Roland Felmlee, age 85, of Beech Creek, Pa. passed away peacefully on October 31, 2019 at his home surrounded by family. Bill was born on September 11, 1934 to the late Guy O. and Sara B. Felmlee in Curtin Twp., Centre County, Pa. He served in the United States Air Force from 1953 to 1958 stationed at RAF Shepherd’s Grove in Suffolk, England where he met and married Doris ‘Pearl’ Groome, his wife, who survives.

Bill was a gifted tool and die maker and machinist working for Cerro Metal Products of Bellefonte, Pa. until his retirement. He enjoyed playing baseball in his younger years, hunting with family and ‘The Johnny Bull’ hunting camp which he built on the Orviston Mountain. He was a life long member and deacon of the Lock Haven First Baptist Church serving humbly as the Adult Men’s Sunday School teacher for many years.

Bill will be best remembered as a husband, father and grandfather of integrity and a man of sincerity. He lived his life with a clear conscience before his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, striving to bring glory to God in all that he did. “Only a sinner saved by grace by a gracious God”.

He is survived by 4 children, son Guy and (Tammy) Felmlee of Sigel, Pa., son Rob and (Leslie) Felmlee of Lock Haven, Pa., daughter Stacy and (Adam) Hunt of Beech Creek, Pa. and son Chad and (Holly) Felmlee of Beech Creek, Pa.

Bill is also survived by 8 great grandchildren, 2 step grand children and 1 step great grandchild. He is fondly remembered by his extensive “English” family who he held in deepest regard.
