William F. Coons
Bill was a consummate giver of himself. He gave of his time, talent and treasure to Third Presbyterian Church, The Greece Performing Arts Society, the LIFT Corporation (a nonprofit providing mentoring and housing to an inner-city family) and the Mineral Section of the Rochester Academy of Science. He also supported his wife Carol in her involvement in both the Greece Food Shelf and the Third Presbyterian Food Cupboard. He sang in choirs for 50 years and spent many hours collecting minerals and researching the family genealogy. Bill was a talented handyman, and a great problem solver. He had a focused eye for detail and was always a dependable source of advice and assistance. Bill lived a long and honorable life and will be profoundly missed by family and friends.

Karen Donahoe Savarese (Jason), Allison Donahoe (Kyle Christie), Meghan Donahoe Stoehr (Michael), Aaron Coons and Kyle Coons. He is predeceased by his parents, David Floyd Warren Coons and Anna Emily Peshek Coons.
