William L. Klehm, III, 57, passed away on July 24. He was the son of William L. Klehm, Jr. and Virginia Carty, and the stepson of Gladys “Candie” Klehm.
Bill was born in Boston and lived in North Andover, Massachusetts. He moved to East Greenwich two days before he entered second grade. Bill graduated from EGHS in 1983. He worked at several vocations before working for himself as an independent contractor in recycling. Although he later moved to Cranston, he continued to spend most of his time in East Greenwich. During his last several years Bill fought a long and hard battle with COPD.
For the many who knew him, he was a true, dependable friend with a generous heart of gold. He was always available to those who asked for or needed help. Bill will be missed by his many friends.
Besides his parents, he is survived by his sister, Mary K. Markovitz; niece, Amanda Blake, and his great-niece and nephew: Ruth and Joseph.
