William W. “Bill” Fagundus, Jr.
BAYVIEW — William Winfred “Bill” Fagundus, Jr., 56, born in Pitman, New Jersey, passed away on May 21, 2007. A graduate of East Carolina University, he worked at A&B Auto before beginning a 25 year career with the N.C. Department of Human Resources. Though his “paying” job was with the State of N.C., his real passions were always in his craft. He had natural talents of carpentry, mechanical work on cars, gardening, tinkering in general, and that is where his heart was most content. Beyond the creation of his work, he found joy in his two children; Bryan Carl Fagundus of Winterville and Ashley Fagundus Dengler of Wilmington. In addition to his children, Bill leaves behind two beautiful grandchildren; Turner Bryan Fagundus and Wyatt Carl Fagundus; a daughter-in-law, Julie Fagundus; and a son-in-law, Todd Dengler. He also leaves behind two brothers; Frank Fagundus of Washington Township, NJ and Duncan Fagundus M.D. of Greenville NC; two sisters; Colleen Cooke of Salem, NJ and Faith Neal of Aura, NJ; ten nieces and nephews and one great niece. Preceding him in death were his mother, Lois McLeod Fagundus and a sister Laura Fagundus. We will miss our father, friend and brother, but we rest in knowing that he is dining with the King today. (1Peter 5:10) And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, June 1 at the Bayview Community Church at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Beaufort County Humane Society. Arrangements made by Wilkerson Funeral Home and Crematory.
