Obituary

William H. Stengel, III, age 65, of Voorhees, NJ passed away on Sunday, March 22, 2020.

Bill Stengel was born in Philadelphia, PA and resided in Williamstown, NJ before moving to Voorhees in 1994. William was a member of Saint Andrew the Apostle Roman Catholic Church in Voorhees. He retired in 2008 with United Parcel Service out of Vineland, NJ after a long career as a driver and member of the Teamsters Union. He worked in his second career by building and working his own landscaping business. He was extremely passionate about motorcycling and loved hiking. Vacationing and visiting the national parks was one of his favorite pastimes where he was contemplating becoming a park ranger volunteer when he retired from landscaping. He had a great appreciation for music and especially loved going to music festivals. Bill also enjoyed cooking “his way” and worked so hard to make the family holiday dinners and other home entertainment events as perfect as possible. Something little known to others was his talent for writing; over the years he wrote beautiful poems and letters to his wife. But above all, he cherished the time spent with family, especially Lola and Malin, his granddaughters, and will be deeply missed by those he leaves behind.

Bill was preceded in death by his father, William H. Stengel, Jr. He is survived by his wife, June A. Stengel (Coates); mother, Lucy Stengel, sons, Michael A. Stengel (fiance’ Joy Pieloch, William H. Stengel, IV (Melanie); grandchildren, Lola, Malin, Samuel and Sydney; brothers, Michael J. Stengel (Karen), Gregg Stengel (Lynda), Glen Trace (Kim); sister, Betty Ann Dolly (Pete); many nieces and nephews.

At the request of the family, services will be private. Interment will take place at Jesus, Bread of Life Cemetery in Mount Laurel, NJ. In lieu of flowers and donations, please keep William’s family in your thoughts and prayers. Due to our current health crisis, there will be a memorial mass and gathering to celebrate Bill’s life in a few months’ time.

There will be a private funeral service on Friday, March 27, at 11:00 AM, which will be live-streamed on YouTube. This can be accessed through the Mount Laurel Home for Funeral YouTube channel:

So, so sorry about your loss. Bill and I found a connection through motorcycles. He saw my BMW in my garage when he was out here as our landscaper and then we started to really talk, I told Bill that I was president of a BMW club and then found out that Bill used to belong to the same BMW club.
He was truly a great worker, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to find someone to replace the great work he did.
My deepest sympathies... I’m sure wherever he’s at, he’s shining on!

I will always remember all the bike trips I took with Bill. 13 years in a row we did the Laconia trip although Bill had done it many more times than that. He was always ready to go even after driving his truck the night before couple hours of sleep and he was ready to go again. Rain or shine he was ready to go trying to break last year's time. Going to miss you Bill but I will always have my riding memories.

From John Forbes:

I have too many good memories to write here. Bill and I rode together for many years. My favorite memory is our trip to Arizona to visit my uncle. The roads out west are straight and isolated. We rode into the worst thunderstorm I had ever seen. I could not see the road ahead of me. But I could look down through the bottom of my helmet and see the wheel of Bill's bike next to me. I decided to follow his wheel, thinking somehow he must be able to see better than me. It seemed like hours anf finally we were so wet we pulled into a rest stop to pour the water out of our boots. And Bill said to me," I don't know how you could see, I was just watching your wheel and following you." And I looked at him and said, "You 've got to be kidding me. I couldn't see anything, I was following you." So we decided to stop for the night. We realized we had both been driving blind.

I am so sincerely sorry for this terrible loss. I knew Bill from seeing him at Arlong"s for about 35 years. We would talk about music, which he knew so much about, and I enjoyed his sense of humor. I will miss seeing him, and I wish his family comfort in his memories. I hope he is the angel that watches over his family
