Bill was a calming influence on people, at home and at work and had an undying optimism. Bill never complained and even when sick, he would say that he wasn't. Bill never fully retired from the practice of medicine–his patients were too important. Bill loved all animals, golf, the Beatles and traveling with his family. Bill had a great sense of humor and found joy in every moment of life.

Haywood Tyner "Butch" Wall - March 9, 1953 - June 9, 2022

Wall

Haywood Tyner "Butch" Wall - March 9, 1953 - June 9, 2022 aywood Tyner "Butch" Wall, 69 passed away unexpectedly on June 9, 2022 at his home in Indiantown. He was born March 9, 1953 in Orlando Florida to Clarence “Woody” Wall and Mary Conroy Wall. They were a military family, so they relocated alot in his youth with his father's deployments and stations. He graduated from Vero Beach High School and settled in Indiantown Florida 52 years ago.

Butch was a union member with the Teamsters, where he worked constructing the FPL power plant in Indiantown. His picture of a snowman he built at the FPL job site during the historic 1979 Florida snowfall is legendary. He worked 25 years with US Sugar in various positions until his retirement.

He met the love of his life Cheryl Lynn Gibbs on Thanksgiving 1974 and they dated for over a year. During that time a Moody Adams Crusade came to Kiwanis Park in Indiantown where Butch made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ that impacted his life and ensured his eternal salvation. He and Cheryl married on July 1, 1976 at the Dunklin Memorial Baptist Church in Indiantown. And the rest is history.

They started their family together, welcoming 4 children: Clarence, James, Eric and Kimberly and raised them in Indiantown. As the kids grew up the family took several memory making month long summer vacations out west. Butch loved to travel, however in his later years those traveling with him would have preferred to be the driver.

Butch was a lifelong Harley Davidson motorcycle collector, builder and rider. His most serious accident was 25 years ago when his Hog hit a hog just a couple of miles from home and yet he was able to ride The Tail Of The Dragon a few years later just fine.

A constant in Butch’s life was a love for music, books and watching movies on the big screen. A love that he shared with his wife and passed on to his children. Butch had a very active sense of humor that was a main stay in his life. His and Cheryl’s sardonic wit has helped them stay married for 46 years, it’s better to laugh at something than to cry about it. That and she has never seen him clean shaven. He always made a point to be a good tipper, a lesson he learned from watching his Mother work waiting tables as he was growing up.

Butch was a good and loyal friend. When he considered you a friend it was a lifelong friendship, many of which he treasured and made a point to stay connected with. Often times while he was traveling if he knew he was close to where a friend lived he would stop by unannounced to say hi and catch up. Going somewhere with Butch was always an adventure, you never knew where you would end up or when you would get home. At the very center of it all was love. He will be remembered and missed by his family, friends and all that knew him. He was also “Santa”. This part of his life brought joy to him and the children he saw.

Sadly, Butch was predeceased by his infant son, Clarence Earl Wall; and 2 precious grandbabies they were expecting to welcome into their family. Those angels surely greeted Papa at the pearly gates. He was also predeceased by his parents Clarence and Mary and 2 brothers: Jess "Ricky" Wall and James "Jimmy" Terry. Welcome home "Butch".

Butch is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Cheryl Lynn Wall; sons James Haywood Wall, Eric Lee Wall (Nikki Frick) daughter Kimberly Sue Wall Saylor (Steve); Grandchildren Rowan Lynn Wall and Alex Frick and sister Judy Wall Dungey (Steve).

A celebration of his life will be held at the Family Worship Center of Indiantown on Saturday, 6/18/2022, at 11:00 a.m. Immediately following will be a time of fellowship and sharing of a meal and general gunfire at the Family Worship Center fellowship hall.

For those who wish in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Indiantown Veterans Association.

Coates

Gary L. Coates - October 8, 1945 - June 8, 2022 Gary L. Coates passed away peacefully on June 8th, 2022 due to complications of Parkinson’s Disease. He was born on October 8th, 1945 in Berkeley, California. However, his early ancestors traveled to Mount Hood, Oregon by wagon train where his mother, Virginia Ebiu, grew up in the family orchard. Gary always considered this area his special place. He graduated from California State University, Northridge, and immediately started his own marketing company with a friend/partner. His success brought him an offer to join Sanford R. Goodkin Research Corporation to conduct market research studies and act as a consultant in development opportunities. A few years later he was offered a position with a Canadian development company that positioned him in Boca Raton, Florida as president of their Florida properties, but he would eventually embark on his own once again with the creation of PMA Sales Group, Inc.

He loved the outdoors, fishing, hiking, and spending hours on his boat. He also competed in local road races as well as participated in many marathons. He will be greatly missed and remembered not only for his never-give-up attitude, but his support and selflessness for the family he loved so much.

He is survived by his wife Robin, children; Christopher, Catherine, and Shannon (Josh Stout), his cousin Cari Reuter (Jim Fagan), his daughter Lori (deceased first wife, Jayne Garrett), his granddaughter Amber (Dylan Sydow), great-grandson- Gunner Sydow and step-great-granddaughter Krissy Sydow.

His wishes to donate physically to Parkinson’s Brain Research was with enduring optimism that a cure could be realized someday in the near future.

Frank adored his loved ones and deeply cherished his relationships with both his family and friends. His role as grandfather was his greatest source of pride and he was known as the best Poppop in all the land to his eight grands and four great grands.

Born on the 4th of July 1945, he planted childhood roots in Rahway, New Jersey where he later met the love of his life, Joanne. He enlisted in the Navy at the age of 17 and became a decorated Vietnam veteran.

He moved his family to Connecticut in 1971. He was a dedicated employee of Union Carbide Corporation, holding various positions over a 32-year span and ending his career as the director of finance.

His sense of humor and love of people helped him establish and maintain lifelong friendships while continuously creating new ones wherever he found himself. He was an avid golfer and loved his home located on the 9th hole of the Heritage Ridge Golf Course. When he wasn’t golfing himself, he would offer a cold drink, smile, and small conversation to his golf buddies who passed by his back porch. He loved to spoil his grandchildren, tell elaborate and animated stories, write poetry, go fishing, dabble in the kitchen, play words with friends, rummy, and dominos. He and his wife Joanne were days shy of celebrating their 58th wedding anniversary. Together, they enjoyed seeking new adventures, traveling and enjoying the precious, small moments in between the bigger parts of life.

He fulfilled a lifelong dream of serving the Lord when he became a eucharistic minister for Saint Christophers Church and enjoyed his time participating in the men’s ministry group.

He leaves behind his loving wife Joanne, daughter Colleen and son Michael. He is survived by his son-in-law Gordie Fairchild Jr., grandchildren Tyler and his wife Jen, Whitney and her husband Albert DiGiacomo, Sydney and partner Carl Winkler, Cameron, Emory, and partner Kris, Sophie and partner Andrew; his daughter in law Marit Vader, granddaughters Marte and Arianne Weiland; great-granddaughters Adriana, Alacey, and Ashlyn Fairchild and great-grandson Oliver Winkler; sisters Peggy and Carol and their respective husbands Jimmy Carlson and Charlie Manto, sisters in law Peggy Weiland, Patti Roediger and Dolores Palazzo, brother in law Joe DiComo and wife Maureen, thirteen nieces, eight nephews, and many great-nieces and nephews.

John Arnold Spina - November 11, 1938 - June 2, 2022

Spina

John Arnold Spina - November 11, 1938 - June 2, 2022 It is with enormous sadness that we mourn the passing of John Arnold Spina, also known as Jack, Captain Jack, Big Jack, and Happy Jack, after a brief illness, on June 2, 2022.

Jack is preceded in death by his father Anthony Joseph Spina, Jr., his mother Virginia Fay (Elia) Spina, brother Anthony Joseph Spina III, and first wife Jane (Cotter) Spina.
Jack is survived by his beloved wife of 30 years, Mari Jo (Jo-Jo) Spina, his son from his first wife, John Joseph Spina (also known as Jack), daughter-in-law Dianna, grandchildren Devin, Isabelle, Gianna, and great-granddaughter Novena Maria, his sister-in-law Catherine Spina as well as many other brothers and sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, and cousins.

Jack was born on November 11, 1938, in Paterson, NJ. He joined the National Guard Reserves in 1960 where he served his country for several years. In his long life, Jack was a true jack of all trades and worked in and ran businesses in textiles, commercial construction, dry-cleaning, auto sales, and managed rental properties.

Jack had a great gift of socializing and making everyone he met feel comfortable with his warm and magnetic personality, deep voice, and smile. Jack served as President of the Lake Wallenpaupack Yacht Club (LWYC) for four years where along with his wife Jo-Jo they welcomed friends and family and hosted many social events. Jack loved horseback riding, golfing, fishing, skiing, barbequing, and of course vacationing at Port St. Lucia, Florida, where Jack, Jo-Jo, and beloved kitty Oscar, recently made their permanent home.

Jack leaves behind warm memories of his unconditional love for those close to him; especially his wife Jo-Jo and the family and friends he shared so many happy times with over the years. Jack will be tremendously missed though we are comforted that he has been promoted to God’s universal family reunion in heaven.

Due to the geographical distance of many family and friends, there will be no funeral service. A private life celebration in honor of Jack will be held later in Pennsylvania and Florida with those dates to be determined.

Schwartz

Jane Schwartz - April 8, 1932 - June 1, 2022 Remembering Jane, Loving Mother Grandmother(Grammy) Friend A Lifetime of “Sweet Memories” of one who Loved us so!

Miss Me-But Let me go
When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little- but not too long
And not with your heads bowed low.
Remember the Love that we all must take and each one must go alone.
It’s all part of the Master’s plan. A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart, Go to the friends we know.
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.

Miss me-but let me go

The family would like to Thank you for your prayers and support during this time. Your shared memories, comforting condolences, and gestures of love are truly appreciated.
