Obituary

William Henry Prange Jr., 90, of Stow, Ohio, was called home to the Lord October 13, 2019 after a lifetime of service. He was born Oct. 30, 1928 in Northampton, Ohio to the late William H. Prange and Clara (Herbruck).

He is survived by children, William Prange (late Cheryl) of New York; David (Brenda) Prange of Akron; Laura (Terry) Freeman of Cuyahoga Falls; Eric (Linda) Prange of Cuyahoga Falls; and Steven Prange of Stow; grandchildren, Peter (Cassandra) and Joseph Freeman of Cuyahoga Falls; Melissa Prange of Akron; Erica (Matt Knittel) Prange of Lyndhurst and Caleb Prange of Cuyahoga Falls.

Bill is preceded in death by his wife, Rosemary (Leasure); daughter, Judith Prange; siblings, Lois (Jess) Allphin; Jane (Jim) Woods; and Robert (Darlene) Prange.

He was a 1946 graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School and an Army veteran of the Korean conflict. Bill married Rose July 17, 1952 and moved to Stow in 1959.

Bill worked as a postal clerk for the United States Postal Service for 26 years. He was a bricklayer, beekeeper and nuisance trapper.

He was a member of Grace Bible Church in Stow, and one of his last wishes was that everyone who knew him would do a good deed for someone less fortunate in remembrance of him.

My sympathies to the Prange family for your loss.
Fifty years ago, Mr. Prange became a positive influence in my life. He was one of the most industrious men I've ever known. He reached out to help my family in a time of need. In his 4-H club, he taught how to cut and nail to build rabbit hutches with 2x4's, plywood, and hardware cloth. I learned simple AC wiring from him and experienced summer house painting on plank and ladder scaffold. He sat me down to eat with his family at the dinner table at least several times, which a boy always appreciates.
I'm certain the Lord will reward him greatly for his kindness and generosity.

Uncle bill was such a kind inspiring person. I enjoyed hearing his stories about my grandmother (his sister), the farm they grew up on, and the family history. I will honor his request to do an act of kindness for someone in need and I am sure many others will too.

Sending love and condolences,
