William "Bill" R. Pomeroy, Sr., 89, founder of Pomeroy's Garage, passed away peacefully on January 1, 2022, in the company of his loving wife Mary Louise "Marie" (Costigan) Pomeroy, his family, and his beloved cat.
Bill, son of Lawrence and Laura (Michaud) Pomeroy, was born on December 5, 1932 in Presque Isle Maine. He was predeceased by his siblings Margaret, Ralph, Malcolm, Wendell, and Ronald.

Bill retired from Pomeroy's Garage in the mid-1990's, but he continued to get up every morning and work on one of his many projects. He wore his navy blue Dickies and work boots right up until he couldn't. Bill was a kindhearted man who dearly loved his family, both human and four-legged.
