Schnecksville

William R. Lentz (Bill), 75, of Schnecksville, passed away on Wednesday, March 20th, 2024, surrounded by his loving family, at Lehigh Valley Hospital, Cedar Crest Campus. For eighteen cherished years, Bill was the devoted husband of Janice I. (Semmel) Lentz.  Born in Allentown, he was the beloved son of the late Robert W. and Katharina (Wimmer) Lentz.
A graduate of Parkland High School, Bill's passion for music shone brightly.  He played in a band and even recorded an album, a testament to his creative spirit.  Shortly after this musical achievement, Bill answered the call to serve, enlisting in the United States Navy.  He proudly served his country during the Vietnam War.
Following his honorable discharge, Bill followed in his father's footsteps, working for the family plumbing company.  He later transitioned to the hospitality industry, holding positions as a hotel night manager and maintenance technician at Olympic Gardens.  Bill's career culminated in many years of dedicated service as a chauffeur for J & J Limo, from which he eventually retired. Bill was also a faithful member of Horizon Church of Allentown.
Survived by his loving wife, Janice, his children, and grandchildren who will always cherish his memory, including his son, William A. Lentz and wife Julie of Branchdale, PA; daughter, Angel R. Lebak and husband Alan of Lawrenceville, GA; and grandchildren Timothy, Rachel, and Dominic.
