William Wetzel III
January 08, 1942 - June 29, 2021
On June 29th 2021, William O. Wetzel III, of Ross Township, died at home at the age of 79.
Bill is survived by his loving wife Peggy; children, Gretchen and William; and brother Ellsworth (Cindy). He was preceded in death by his parents William and Rosella Wetzel.
Bill was born on January 8th, 1942 in Pittsburgh, PA. He graduated in 1964 with a degree in art education from Edinboro State College. In addition, he received his master’s degree from Penn State University. He went on to teach art education at West Jefferson Hills School District for 37 years. He was also an adjunct professor at Penn State University and CCAC.
Bill was a devoted husband and father who would do anything for his family. A talented artist, Bill’s work has been displayed in local galleries and with great pride in his family’s homes. He had a dry sense of humor that made everyone chuckle. To say he will be missed, is the greatest understatement ever said.
There will be a private memorial service.
