William Mack "Bill" York, 88, of Asheboro passed away on March 3, 2021 at the Randolph Hospice House.
Mr. York was born in Randolph County on October 16, 1932 to John and Mary Poole York. Our dad proudly served in the Air Force, completing 3 tours of duty, including 2 tours in Vietnam. After retirement he worked the next 20 years in Heating and Air Conditioning including owning his own business, Bill's Service & Repair. He taught several years at RCC and finally left at the ripe old age of 80 years.
Our dad was a man of quiet strength and he could do literally anything with his hands. He loved working in his shop. He called it "tinkering", but he built furniture and bird houses, and he even built the table saw he used in many of his projects. He was also an amazing cook!
More importantly, this humble man taught his children and grandchildren about life, hard work, owning up to mistakes, and being good, honest people.
Our hearts are shattered, but our spirit knows that Heaven has gained one of the very best!!!
In addition to his parents, Bill was preceded in death by his brother, Carl York and his sister, Patty McCourry.
He is survived by his son, Jeffery York of Greensboro; daughters, Dawn Stone (Wes) of Franklinville and Kathleen Lambe of Liberty; his beloved grandchildren, Autumn Dugas (Joshua), John B. Cheek III, and Kara Lambe; and several nieces and nephews.
