William Andrew Marcon
William Andrew Marcon, 97, died ursday August 29, 2019 at Val-
ley Terrace Assisted Living in Wilder, VT.
Bill was born March 6, 1922, a son of John William and Delphine
Paviol Marcon. He grew up with his parents and two older sisters, Lena
and Alice,in Canaan,Connecticut. He graduated from Housatonic Val-
ley Regional High School, president of the class of 1940 and was hon-
ored when the school asked him to speak at commencement ceremo-
nies 50 years later. After graduation he left for Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute in Troy, NY where he earned his degree in Civil Engineering.
College was interrupted by World War II. Bill enlisted in the US
Army Air Forces and proudly served as a navigator on B29s in the Pacif-
ic. After returning from his military service and nishing his education
he married his high school sweetheart Eve Consolini. He worked for
Standard Oil in Texas and for the State of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg
before settling in Yorktown Heights, NY where Bill became the young-
est Town Engineer in Westchester County.Together Bill and Eve raised
their daughter, Linda and lived a life full of joy, dining and dancing.
Bill continued his professional career as a civil engineer, establishing
his own consulting o ce in Yorktown Heights,NY working in the areas
of municipal engineering, water supply and land development eventual-
ly establishing William A. Marcon Associates with his son-in-law Tom.
He served as the oldest Town Engineer in Westchester County for the
Town of Somers, NY. He was a member of the American Society of
Civil Engineers,National Society of Professional Engineers and Ameri-
can Water Works Association as well as Rotary International.
Bill was overwhelmed when Eve died in 1967. Amazingly he met
Lucille Wolf and they were married in 1969. ey moved to Ossin-
ing, NY where they enjoyed blended family activities, playing tennis and
traveling together. Lucille died in 1976 and he once again found love
and was married to Margaret Scheu Owens in 1977. Bill and Marge
lived in Heritage Hills in Somers, before retiring to Fairway Village on
the golf course at Quechee Lakes, VT in 1990. ey moved to Valley
Terrace in 2013 where Marge died in 2016.
Bill met Charlotte Yoder and spent three wonderful years together
laughing, watching the birds and enjoying local music concerts. Often
after dinner, he would entertain fellow residents while taking requests at
the grand piano.
Bill was musically gifted. If he could hum it he could play it on the pi-
ano, banjo or mandolin. He spoke French and Italian and enjoyed skiing
and riding his Harley Davidson. Bill was an accomplished golfer and was
proud when he shot his age at 80. His positive outlook on life inspired
everyone he met. Bill encouraged everyone to enjoy life to the fullest.
He leaves behind his special friend Charlotte Yoder of Valley Terrace;
a daughter Linda Davis and her husband Tom of Randolph,VT; grand-
daughter, Emily Marotto and family Mike, Eva and Max Marotto of
Duxbury, VT; grandson, Andrew Davis and family Veola and Renata
Davis of Miami, FL; step-children, Helene Rutledge, Carole Davis,

dren and great-grandchildren.
