September 25, 1937 - July 11, 2018

Newburgh, NY

William F. Laddick, "Bill" of Newburgh, entered into rest unexpectedly at home, on Wednesday July 11, 2018. Son of the late Frank and Mary (Albrecht) Laddick, Bill was born in Newburgh, on September 25, 1937. He was 80.

A lifetime resident of Newburgh, Bill was a graduate of Newburgh Free Academy. He married Barbara J. Bramall and together they raised their children. They were married for 55 years. Bill worked for New York Telephone Company, where he retired as a manager. He was a faithful member of St. George's Episcopal Church, serving as a Sub-Deacon.

After an early retirement, Bill and Barbara loved to travel with adventures to Alaska, Egypt, Hawaii, England, Europe and Jerusalem. A member of the Methol Hunting Club, Bill was an avid hunter and fisherman who shared his love of the outdoors with his daughters. He supported his girls in all their endeavors and was proud of their achievements. His greatest joy was being called PAPA by his grandsons. If Bill was not at home he could be found at the Newburgh Yacht Club where he was a lifetime member, and formed lifelong friendships. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife Barbara, who survives at home; his daughters Heather Moore, and her husband Bill of Milan, NY and Melanie Menzie and her husband Bob, of Newburgh; grandsons Ryan and Kyle Menzie; as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents Bill was predeceased by his sisters, Kathryn Garvey and Barbara Lawrence.
