GREENVILLE- William Carl Kinner passed away peacefully in Greenville, Maine on March 4th 2015, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Lewiston on August 2, 1925, to William & Gertrude Kinner of Poland, Maine. \n\nHe served in Panama in the US Army during WWII as a Morse Code operator. Upon returning to Maine he married and started a family. In the early 1950's he moved to McLean, Virginia and began a 26 year career with the US Government, spending the majority of those years abroad. Bill attributed the success of his career to the support of his wife, Kaye. From his military service, to his government career, and throughout his entire life, Bill was a patriotic man.\n\nBill retired in 1979, and shortly after bought a camp on Moosehead Lake where he and Kaye enjoyed boating, fishing and hunting. There he began a second career as a real estate agent and took pride in sharing the Great North Woods with clients. His family and friends have gathered together at camp for over 30 years. His love for and knowledge of the outdoors, and his dinnertime stories about his world travels, will be remembered by all who have spent time with him.\n\nBill leaves behind his beloved wife of 66 years, Kathleen Trenholm Kinner, who will forever call him her "Sweet William"; his daughters, Anita Carlson & husband Robert of Rutland, Mass., Kathie Pandolfo & husband Sal of Natick, Mass, Carol White of Bethel, Maine, and son-in-law Joe Sherman of Sao Paulo, Brasil; nine grandchildren, Michael Pandolfo & wife Katie, Matthew Carlson & wife Alison, Carla Uzzell & husband Mark, Angela Sherman & husband Gabe, Sarah Davidson & husband Phillip, Melissa Sherman, Emily White, Megan White, and Cassidy White; and eight great-grandchildren, Jessica and Alison Uzzell, Lily and Alexis Davidson, Luciana and Lucas Pandolfo, and Anya and Isaac Carlson; sisters Barbara Clune and Joan Kinner of Poland, sister-in-law Pinkie Bartley & husband Tony of Greenville, and brother-in-law Dick Trenholm of Camden; and several nieces and nephews. \n\nBill was predeceased by his parents, his brother Wally Kinner and his daughter Marilyn Sherman.\n\nServices will be held in the spring at the Maine Veterans Cemetery in Augusta.
