William George Barndt Sr. age 90 of Quakertown peacefully passed away on June 17, 2020 at St Luke's Hospital Upper Bucks Campus in Quakertown PA. He was so happy to be home spending his last days with family and his dog Simon. He was a loving husband to Irene Fay (Foulke) Barndt for 66 years. He fondly called her "his bride". They held hands as they fell asleep every night until the end. He was an awesome dad to and is survived by his son William G. Barndt Jr. and his wife LouAnn (Stever) Barndt. He was a proud Poppy to his two grandchildren Alyssa J. Barndt and Corinne N. Barndt. Poppy was also blessed with two great grandchildren Gianna Elle Barndt and Luca William Barndt. He totally adored them and they brought much joy. Bill, was a kind man known for his warm smiles and kind ways. There was always a hint of mischief in his eyes. He was called to serve during the Korean War. He proudly served in the United States Army and served in Germany. He spent his leaves traveling throughout Europe. Upon leaving the service, he went home to Haycock Township. He met Fay and married. They settled in Keller's Church Pa. Bill worked in a hosiery mill. He soon entered into an apprenticeship with Acme Markets and became a skilled meat cutter. He worked for Acme Markets for 38 years until retiring at age 62. Bill was not one to sit idle so he worked part time cutting meats for Frederick's Meats until-age 86. Bill and Fay spent their golden years traveling the country with their fifth wheel camper until finally dividing their time between PA and Florida. Bills many interests included fishing in Delaware and hunting. He was a farmer at heart and enjoyed raising chickens. He had a passion for berry picking and loved to eat as many as he picked! He grew up speaking Pennsylvania Dutch and enjoyed speaking his childhood language at Grundsaugh Lodge yearly banquets. He was a member for over 50 years at the Masonic Lodge in Quakertown PA. He was a friend to all and will be truly missed by many.
