Obituary - William -Bill- McCollWilliam (Bill) McColl, 90, of Rye, New York, passed away on November 11, 2022, in Marietta, Georgia, surrounded by his family.

Bill was born in Yonkers, NY to the late Duncan and Margaret McColl on August 11, 1932. He attended Saunders Trade School in Yonkers, NY. He joined the U.S. Navy in 1952, where he served in the Korean War aboard the USS Dealey.

Bill married the love of his life, Alice Joyce in 1960. Shortly after, they moved to Rye and started their family.

Bill worked various jobs in his early years, including working on the railroad before starting with New York Telephone Co, AT&T and PepsiCo Inc. He enjoyed activities such as hunting, golfing, bowling, and softball. He was a hard worker but always found time for family and friends, especially the “Happy Hour Crew” on Friday evenings. This group of dear friends met weekly since the late 80s.

Bill was a proud and dedicated member of the Rye Fire Department from 1964 to present, serving as Fire Chief from 1972-78.
