William's Story

ORONO AND GREENBUSH - Bill Caron, 66, died unexpectedly, September 18, 2015, at home. He was born December 7, 1948 in Clinton, MA, the son of Nil and Mary (McNickalus) Caron.

Bill graduated from Sacred Heart Academy of Worcester, MA in 1966. Following some college, Bill enlisted in the US Air Force and proudly served in Vietnam as a Security Police Officer. After his service, he worked for the New England Telephone Co. for 24 years. When he was younger, he was a Range Officer and trained several Police Departments in firearms. Bill also competed in professional shooting competitions. Recently, he had been enjoying ATVing and exploring the backroads of Maine. He was quick with a joke and always gave his opinion on a subject. His laugh will be missed. He would have celebrated his 16th anniversary with his wife, Susan (Chaff) Caron on September 25.

Bill is survived by his wife, Susan Caron; son, Christopher Grilli and his wife, Alexis of Rutland, MA; his most loved granddaughter, Quinn; sister, Nancy Rausch and her husband, Richard of The Villages, FL; niece, Melissa and her family of MN; as well as many cousins throughout Massachusetts and Canada.

A graveside service with military honors will be held 1pm, Thursday, September 24, 2015 at Maine Veteran's Memorial Cemetery, 163 Mount Vernon Rd, Augusta. Condolences to the family may be expressed at www.BrookingsSmith.com.
