William H.T. Sudbrink

William Harold Taylor (Bill) Sudbrink, 71, of Willet, died Sunday June 3, 2012 with his family at his late son Tommy's former home in Willet, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Mr. Sudbrink was born in New York City on August 26, 1940 to William F. and Martha S. (DeShazo) Sudbrink. Bill served in the Navy and was a master carpenter.

He is survived by his wife, Caryl Lewis Sudbrink; his children Caryl R. Warner and husband Scott, Charlie D. Sudbrink and wife Marcy, William C. Sudbrink, Charlene E. Sudbrink, Laurie L. Sudbrink, Joanne M. Freiberger, Maggie E. LePetz, Sydney S. Harrell and husband Mike, Gerry C. Ellis and wife Lorie, Pamula J. Powell and husband Herb, Tammy L. Hayes and husband Dale, Debbi D. Posten and husband Andy; 26 grandchildren; and 10 great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his youngest son, Thomas Dalton Sudbrink; a granddaughter Nicole Muriel Hayes; a brother, Charles Sudbrink; and a sister, Joan Sudbrink Watts.

The family will be present to receive friends at the K.L. Sharp Funeral Home, Cincinnatus, NY on Sunday, June 10 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. A memorial service and meal will be held at the Senior Center in Willet immediately following.

In lieu of flowers, Bill would have preferred donations to Caring Community Hospice of Cortland County, 11 Kennedy Parkway, Cortland, NY 13045; or the Triangle Seventh-Day-Adventist Church, 3670 Route 206, Whitney Point, NY 13862.

My sincere condolances to the Sudbrink family on Bill's passing, I will forever miss his witt, smile,
and friendship.

Time really flies - seems only yesterday that Bill moved to Willet and was teaching me and my brother Rob how to lift weights, and telling us his visions for Stump Pond (Sportsmans Lake)

Sorry I can't be there for calling hours, but I will reflect on the many good times we shared and take comfort that he is at peace.
