    MILTON — William “Bill” Thayer, 46, of Howard Drive passed away peacefully Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, at the Vermont Respite House in Williston, surrounded by his family and friends.

    He was born in Woodsville, N.H., on Jan. 23, 1967, the son of William E. and Betty (Wright) Thayer. He is predeceased by his father, who passed in 1993.

    Bill worked for the Central Vermont Medical Center for 30 years, spending the last 20 at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin, Vt., where he was a devoted Manager of Nutrition and Food Service.

    Bill was a very caring, humorous, and generous person. He was a talented individual, which was evident in his many design projects, both personally and professionally. Bill’s love of family and his inner strength is what enabled him to be a devoted son, caring brother, loving uncle, and true friend to so many.

    Bill loved to entertain and cook for his family and friends. He spent countless hours listening to all genres of music, gardening, and especially spending time with his nephew, Reese. He also enjoyed traveling and meeting new people. Bill will forever be missed for his loyalty, addictive smile, and great sense of style.

    Survivors include his mother, Betty Thayer of Barre, Vt.; one brother, Paul Thayer and his longtime companion, Stacey Leadbetter of Barre, Vt.; one sister, Audrey Peters and her husband, Jeff Ouellette of Milton, N.H.; a special nephew who he loved so much, Reese Thayer of Barre, Vt.; and his two loving canine companions, Bennie and Jett.

    Bill’s family will receive guests at the Pruneau-Polli Funeral Home, 55 Summer St., Barre, on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013, beginning at 11 a.m., with a service of remembrance immediately following.

    In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Vermont Respite House, 99 Allen Brook Lane, Williston, VT 05495; or the Chittenden County Humane Society, 142 Kindness Court, South Burlington, VT 05403.
