William Hatton

d. May 9, 2019

William L. “Bill” Hatton, 72, of Maple Street, passed away on Thursday, May 9, 2019, at his
residence with his family by his side.

Born on November 1, 1946, in Norwich, William was the son of Carl E. and Ida May (Borst)
Hatton. Bill was a twin, and one of his parents’ eight children. He attended Norwich City
Schools, then went to work in the Mendel slaughterhouse for 22 years, Norwich Shoe Co. for
eight years, then as a senior recycling attendant for Chenango County’s waste management
facility for 20 years. For 25 years, Bill and his family also helped keep the Chenango
Fairgrounds clean during fairground events. Bill enjoyed fishing, hunting, and camping, and for
many years “called Bingo” for the St. Bartholomew’s and St. Paul’s Church bingo events. He
also enjoyed traveling to South Carolina to visit his brother.

Most of all, Bill was devoted to his five children and their families. He always put his family
first. He is survived by his children David (Joel Birchenough), Carl (Ashley), Richard
(Cassandra), Wendy (John), and Susie (Daniel), each of Norwich, and 16 grandchildren. One
great-grandchild is soon to be born. Bill is also survived by his siblings Leatrice (Russell) Chase,
Elaine (Joe) Mason, Kurt (Kim) Hatton, Shirley Reigles, Roger (Brenda) Hatton, and Wilson
Hatton (Bill’s twin), several nieces and nephews, and by the mother of his children,
Kathryn Pattee. He was predeceased by his brother, Henry.
