William H. Feldmann passed away peacefully at his home at Covenant Living in Cromwell, Connecticut, on July 30, 2022. He was 88 years old.
Bill was born in Middletown to Harry G. and Edith (Olson) Feldmann in 1934. He graduated from Durham High School in 1952, served in the Army from 1953 to 1955, and then graduated from Upsala College in East Orange, New Jersey, with a B.S. in Accounting in 1959.
A long-time resident of South Glastonbury, Bill spent about half of his CPA career in public accounting, with the remaining years in private accounting, having finished his career as a controller at Gold Bond Mattress Company in Hartford.
Bill is predeceased by his son Marc William Feldmann, his sister Sandra Williamson and her spouse Robert Williamson, and his sister-in-law Nancy Lang. He is survived by the love of his life and his “best pal” Janet (Lang) Feldmann, his wife of nearly 52 years. He is also survived by his son, Ross A. Feldmann, and his spouse, Cristal D. Martinez Robles, of Falls Church, Virginia; brother Jeffrey Olson Feldmann and his spouse Carol Ann Feldmann of West Hartford; niece Elizabeth Williamson and her spouse David Wolloch of Olympia, Washington; nephew Jeffrey Levin and his spouse Kay Drought of Portsmouth, New Hampshire; niece Jennifer Herwood and her spouse Jeffrey Herwood of Stowe, Vermont; and nephew Erik Levin and his spouse Anne Pearson of Berkeley, California, as well as many grandnieces and grandnephews.
A dedicated husband and father, Bill loved spending time with his family, including on several adventurous trips to such locations as Australia, Egypt, Peru, Mexico, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia. Bill loved to ski, particularly at his beloved Stowe, Vermont. He volunteered for several years as a staff member at the South Glastonbury Public Library, and he also served his community as a treasurer at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in the 1960s and 1970s. In his final days, Bill said, “Thanks to Jan and the boys, I had a wonderful life.”
His family wishes to extend its profound gratitude to the staff of Middlesex Hospital, Hartford Hospital, Covenant Living, and the Middlesex Health Hospice Program for providing excellent care in his final years.
