WILLIAM GEORGE DEVENNEY, JR.

February of 1935 – June 2, 2018

Bill was born to William and Ruth Devenney in Wilmington, DE, reborn into God’s family as a teenager, and delivered to Heaven on June 2, 2018.

Loved by his family, Bill was preceded in death by Joan, his loving wife of almost 60 years. He is survived by his five children: Bill (& Shari), Mark (& Marina), (Lee &) Ruth Epstein, Shawn, and Faith, his cherished siblings, Jane Meder and Guy (& Ruth) Devenney and many nieces and nephews. Bill loved being a grandfather and great-grandfather to 30 children, here and in heaven.

After the Navy and Bible School, he spent his entire career with the family trucking business, William’s Chemical Transport Inc. He was a giving friend to many through the years and loved meeting people and learning about their life.

Above all, Bill loved God, God’s Word and singing about his Savior, Jesus. He wanted his children and family to personally know Jesus and honor the Lord with their lives. He brought joy to many by caring for, hosting, and serving family, friends, missionaries and church groups through the years.

A celebration of Bill’s life will be held Saturday, June 9, with a viewing at 11:30 AM and funeral at 12:30 PM, at McCrery & Harra Funeral Home, 3924 Concord Pike, Wilmington, DE, and interment to follow at Siloam United Methodist Church Cemetery, 3720 Foulk Road, Garnet Valley, PA, 19060.
