William T. Fitzgibbons

Jerseyville 12/25/2013

William T. Fitzgibbons, age 77, died Dec. 25th at 4:27 PM AT Jersey Community Hospital with his loving family at his side. Bill earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Missouri, Rolla, graduating at the top of his class. Growing up on his family farm, Bill developed a strong work ethic that led to a distinguished career at Olin Brass where he retired as the Director of Engineering after 40 years of service. He was a master mechanic and a jack of all trades and always had to be working on something, never meeting a challenge he couldn’t tackle. He applied his endless knowledge to the house he designed and resided in until the time of his death. Bill had a passion for life that showed in everything he did. It was that passion that saw him through a progressive disease that he battled courageously for over 25 years. Bill lived for his family and never missed an opportunity to brag on his kids and grandkids, whom he cherished. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
