William G. Koble, 78, of Fallston, passed away on April 15, 2020, at Elmcroft of Chippewa, after an extended illness.
He was born May 30, 1941 to William E. Koble and Dorothy E. (Schoaf) Koble who resided in Fallston. This is where Billy lived and served his entire life. He loved this town. Billy served as a Fallston fireman for many years along with working as a steelworker at J&L Steel. He also worked at the Beaver County Times as a security guard. He proudly served in the United States Army in the 1960’s and was member of the American Legion #19.
Billy was preceded in death by his parents and wife Donna L. (Vandine) Koble.
Surviving is a son Lou Caler and his wife Laurie and granddaughters Carole Ann Caler Klinkner and Tammy Caler. Surviving siblings include Donald Koble and wife Dorothy, Kenneth Koble and wife Maureen, and Alice Zugonics and husband John. He had many nieces and nephews – Cheryl and Jason Hickey, Susan Koble, Kenny Koble Jr., and wife Carrie, Kevin Koble, Karen Koble, Lisa Howell, and Nancy Wilson. He also had many grand nieces and nephews.
Billy was blessed with so many great friends. We would like to thank them for each making so many trips to visit him at his home and Elmcroft. He looked forward to those visits with friends. He attended Westminster United Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder. He loved attending church with his friends and getting together at their monthly breakfasts. Nothing made him happier than to make a friend an apple pizza pie.
Because of Covid-19 there will not be a public service, but we will have a memorial celebration of Bill’s life at a later date.
The family would like to thank Elmcroft Senior Living and Gateway Hospice for their care for Billy.
