William C. Wrocklage
William Charles Wrocklage, 90, of Milford New Hampshire died peacefully on June 14, 2018 at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack, NH.
Bill was born on November 26, 1927 in Teaneck New Jersey and lived in Hackensack. After serving in the US Army in Korea, Bill married his high school sweetheart, Carolyn (Cramer) Wrocklage. He set up a TV repair business in Westwood, NJ and worked part time as an auxiliary policeman. His passions were yearly vacations to Truro, Cape Cod, fishing, boating, trains, stamp collecting, and ham radio (K1IE)
In 1967 Bill took a job managing the installation of nurse call systems in hospitals in the northeast. He and Carol, and their two children, David and Ellen, moved to the then small town of Merrimack, New Hampshire. Upon becoming empty nesters, Bill & Carol moved to their beloved hilltop home in Goffstown, NH overlooking the city of Manchester.
Retirement took them to Sebastian, Florida, where they enjoyed the warmth and sunshine until Carol’s death in 1997. Bill immediately moved back to Milford, New Hampshire to be near family. He joined the Milford United Methodist Church, where he had the good fortune to meet Claire Place, who became a special friend and was at his side when he passed.
Bill is survived by his son David, wife Cynthia, grandchildren Christopher and James and their wives Sarah and Stephanie, and great grandchildren Cavan and Fiona, and his daughter Ellen and her husband Jim Geary, grandchildren Janice and Kevin Wnek, Graham Geary, and Emily Geary, and great grandchildren Jack and Abby.
A memorial service will be held at 1 PM on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at the Milford United Methodist Church at 327 N River Rd, Milford, NH. Donations to Community Hospice House, Merrimack NH, are requested in lieu of flowers. www.hhhc.org/how-to-help/donate.
