William "Bill" Walter Propst

William “Bill” Walter Propst, 84, of Old Fort, North Carolina, passed away Friday, March 04, 2022 at the Memorial Campus of Mission Hospital in Asheville after a brief illness.

 

He was born in Buncombe County on January 04, 1938 to the late Woodrow Propst and Mary Elizabeth Williams Propst of Black Mountain, NC.

 

Bill retired from Ethan Allen following over 30 years of service. He was also a veteran of the U.S. Navy. He was a wonderful man who was well known and loved throughout his community. Bill loved to tell jokes and truly enjoyed making others laugh. He enjoyed gardening, fishing, hunting, and camping. He was also a big fan of bluegrass music and NASCAR racing. Bill never had anything bad to say about anyone, never worried about anything, and he enjoyed life to the fullest.

 

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by several siblings; a granddaughter, Brandy Burnette McKinney; and a stepson, Von Lipe.

 

He is survived by his wife, Verdie Stevens Propst; his daughter, Amanda Wilson (David); three stepsons, Steve Burnette (Carolyn), Gary Burnette (Shirley), and Johnny Duane Lipe; three grandchildren, Austin Wilson (Rachel), Audrea Burgin (Robby), and Quince Burnette (Marcitta); and two siblings, Clara Kelly and Gary Propst.

 

A graveside service will be held on Friday, March 11, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Cherry Springs Memorial Park.
