Deepest sympathy

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of former Stony Creek councilman William “Wild Bill” Liebl, 80, who passed away on April 2 at Glens Falls Hospital.

Born Nov. 12, 1932, in Stony Creek, he was the son of the late Francis X. and Bella (Matuszak) Liebl. He was a 1951 graduate of Hadley-Luzerne High School.

He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. Upon his honorable discharge, he enlisted in the U. S. Army, attaining the rank of corporal.

Liebl worked at International Paper Co. in Corinth for 35 years, retiring as a millwright in 1989. He was a cowboy at several area dude ranches and was caretaker of Livingston Lake Club. He was also a certified private investigator.

He married Patricia A. O’Rourke on Jan. 25, 1957, in Corinth. Pat died Jan. 10, 1995, following 37 years of marriage.

Bill was active in many community organizations including the Stony Creek Volunteer Fire Department and Corinth Knights of Columbus.

Liebl was a Stony Creek town councilman for several terms.

He taught the 4-H snowmobile safety course, was a Boy Scouts of America leader, and served as a master of both the Warrensburgh Masonic Lodge and Unity Lodge No. 22.

Liebl was a member of Oriental Shriners of Troy, and was appointed as a state fire warden. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, horseback riding, snowmobiling and socializing.

Survivors include one son, Joseph Liebl of Glens Falls; two daughters, Bernadette Gray and her husband, Kim, of Gansevoort, and Maureen Zinda and her husband, Larry, of Stony Creek; his beloved grandchildren, Justin and Jared Zinda, Courtney and Chan Gray; two brothers, Daniel Liebl and his wife Patricia, of Hadley, and George Liebl and his wife Jean of Swansea, Mass.; two sisters-in-law, Agnes Liebl of Greenfield Center, and Teresa Liebl of Swansea, Mass.; his close friend Barbara Brooks of Queensbury.

Friends called April 5 at Brewer Funeral Home in Lake Luzerne, after which Masons conducted services. In keeping with Bill’s wishes, there were no funeral services.

Bill’s family expresses gratitude to Dr. Hoy and the staff of Glens Falls Hospital for the compassionate care provided.

Contributions in Bill’s memory may be directed to C.R. Wood Cancer Center, 102 Park St., Glens Falls, NY 12801 or to American Heart Association, 440 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205. To express condolences, see: www.brewermillerfuneralhomes.com.
