CLASS OF 1966
WILLIAM GEORGE WETZEL (1944-2014)
Bill died November 14, 2014, of complications from AL amyloidosis, a rare blood disease that he battled for 18 months.
Pam, his wife of over half a century, was with him.
Bill came to Princeton from Baldwin High, in Pittsburgh, where he captained the football and basketball teams, played baseball, and sang in the choir.
At Princeton he majored in economics, belonged to Quadrangle, played freshman football, and served as business manager of the Student Laundry and senior manager of the Student Pizza Agency. He lived off campus with Pam.
Bill spent 18 years in marketing, for Proctor & Gamble in Cincinnati, the Clorox Company in Oakland, California, and an advertising agency in Atlanta. The final chapter of his career was management consulting, with a specialty in team-building and leadership development. An avid golfer, he loved the outdoors and travel. He and Pam were long-time residents of Dunwoody, Georgia.
In addition to Pam, Bill is survived by daughters Jill Wetzel and Holly Williams and their families. The Class extends its heartfelt sympathy to all of them.
