William "Bill" R. Postlewaite

October 9, 1947 ~ June 16, 2022 (age 74)


William "Bill" Postlewaite, 74, of Brewster, passed away Thursday, June 16, 2022.
He was born October 9, 1947, in Canton, the son of the late  Wilbur and Ruth (Herman) Postlewaite.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Vicky Ridgway of Virginia.  
Bill served in the Army during the Vietnam Era.
Bill's greatest joy in life was his family, followed by hunting, fishing and Harley's. 
He is survived by his wife Darlene S. (Bowman) Postlewaite of Brewster, his children, Michelle (Jeff) Postlewaite of Canton, Scott (Natasha) Postlewaite of Massillon, Josh (Holly) Postlewaite of Canton and Crystal (Brian) Triplett of Navarre.  His beloved grandkids, Anthony, Jordon, Jacob, McKenna and Kayleigh Postlewaite, and Tyler and Maci Triplett.  

Bill was not just a friend, but a father figure to so many others that were near and dear to his heart, including his cousin, Scott B. Postlewaite of Carrollton, nephews, Philip and Marty Ridgway, and niece Candy Ridgway-Mayo of Virginia.  His fun nature and joy for life will live on in his children and grandchildren.  
Bill's wishes were for cremation and to spread his ashes near his favorite fishing hole.
A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.    
Condolences to the family may be made here on our tribute wall.
