William Joseph Schenck

  • On April 15, 2022

William Joseph Schenck, age 71, of Upper St. Clair, passed away unexpectedly while courageously battling ALS on April 9, 2022.

Born on September 9, 1950, he was the son of the late Robert and Anne Schenck.

Beloved father of Michael Robert (Lindsay Keebler) Schenck and the late Christopher John Schenck; loving companion of Patricia Junker; dear brother of the late Robert Schenck.

William was an outdoorsman who loved fishing, hiking and running.  

William graduated from Fordham University and Notre Dame University with business degrees and, most recently, Waynesburg University with a degree in drug and alcohol counseling. William was about to pursue a fourth degree in forestry management when he was struck with ALS. William never missed an opportunity to learn from life experiences, and took pride in continually reinventing himself.

Bill was a great friend and growing up with him in Wayne was truly a friendship I will always carry with me. We shared many terrific times and those memories are forever etched in my heart and soul. People come and go throughout your life but only a few remain friends with you a life time and Bill was one of those friends. He will surely be missed by all of those he touched in his life. All our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family from all of us. All of our love, Dan, Lauren, Brandon and Whitney
