William James Meehl, Jr. of Southampton, PA passed away on April 30, 2020 at Southampton Estates. He was 91 years old. William was the beloved husband of the late Nancy S. Meehl. Bill and Nancy shared 66 years together. He was born in Abington, PA, son of the late William J. Sr. and Mabel Meehl.
Bill was a graduate of Lower Moreland High School and West Chester University. For a year after graduation, he worked for SPS until enlisting in the Army where he served as an X-ray Technician during the Korean War, stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Post Army, he moved on to become a Data Processing Manager with Brooks Instrument, where he spent the majority of his professional career. During this time, he resided in Hatboro, PA with his family, where he attended each and every sporting event and extracurricular activity his three children participated in.
Bill retired from Brooks Instrument in 1987. During retirement, he and Nancy traveled cross country and spent their winters in Florida for a number of years. What Bill loved most was spending quality time with his entire family on vacations in New Hampshire and the Pocono Mountains. His free time hobbies included exercising, fishing, crossword puzzles and counted-cross stitch (his artwork is displayed in each of his family members’ homes and at the Southampton Estates).
Bill was an avid Philadelphia sports fan, especially the Eagles and Phillies. He stayed active well into his years and became the proud recipient of several medals at the Senior Olympi-ACTS throughout his 80’s.
