William E. Temple

October 1, 2018

William E. “Bill” Temple, 68, a lifelong Danville native, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, September 30, 2018 at Grandview Health Homes, Danville.  He was born December 11, 1949 in Bloomsburg PA, the son of the late Lewis Domer and Sarah Agnes Hain Temple.

Bill graduated from Danville High School in 1968.

He served his country in the United States Coast Guard.
