William A. Oberdalhoff, 62, of 494 Hildabrand Lane, Mifflinburg, entered into rest on Sunday, May 14, 2017, at 5:15 p.m. at the Gatehouse at Susquehanna Health Cancer Center.
He was born June 19, 1954, in Baltimore, Md., a son of the late Edward and Lillian (Phillips) Oberdalhoff. On May 16, 1997, he married Judy Mitchell who survives. Together, they shared almost 20 years of wedded memories.

Will was a master plumber. He had such a kind and gentle spirit and was dedicated to everyone in his life. He was always willing to lend a helping hand.
He was a member of the Mifflinburg Church of Nazarene, and enjoyed being a caravan driver. He was also a member of the Union County Sportsman Club, as well as S.A.S.S. (The Single Active Shooting Society) where he was known as "Boxcar Willy".
Will enjoyed fishing, camping, hunting, riding horses, being outdoors, and spending time with his family. Whenever Will and Judy would travel to Baltimore, they would be sure to stop and eat Will's favorite food, Maryland Crabs.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Rebecca and Kurt Bragunier, of Baltimore, and Rachael and Adam Downes, of Mount Airy, Md.; three grandchildren, Flannery Bragunier, Hayden Downes and Jackson Downes; two brothers and one sister-in-law, Douglas and Doris Oberdalhoff, of New Oxford, and Edward Oberdalhoff, of Port Deposit, Md.; and his daughters' mother, JoAnn Flannery, of Baltimore.

Family and friends are invited for a time of visitation with the family from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at First Church of the Nazarene, 12 Market St., Mifflinburg, followed by a celebration of life at noon with the Rev. Wayne S. Krell officiating.
