William H. (Bill) Karmany, Jr., 72, of San Angelo, passed away on July 20, 2019 after a very long, hard fought battle with Agent Orange. Bill was born on September 5, 1946 to William H.

He graduated from Angelo State University in 1972 with his Bachelor's Degree in Business. Private First Class Karmany served in the United States Army and was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star Medal. His time served for our country lead to him being medically discharged. Which he was proud to be a veteran. Following his time in the military he worked for GTE for 20 years. In between working and spending time with his family, Bill proudly volunteered with the Boy Scouts for over 50 years. He was an accomplished Eagle Scout, Vigil in the Order of the Arrow, and received the Silver Beaver. He enjoyed gambling, fishing, hunting, cooking, and farming. He loves pigs and most of all, spending time with his family. Bill is preceded in death by his parents William H Karmany Sr. and Hazel G. Karmany. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Jerry Karmany; his children, William H. Karmany III "Trey" - the favorite and only son that he was very proud of-and wife Velyn; daughter, Brandy Williams - his right hand and mini "Bill"-and husband Michael who was his number 2 son; daughter; April Karmany - his baby girl.

Not only did he enjoy the calls he looked forward to those calls. Bill was loved by many and he cooked for all. He had a zest for life and a love for food, but don't steal his pecan pie! He passed away happy, surrounded by family, and doing what he loved. He had an amazing roll Wednesday and passed away Saturday. Miss you and love you till the 12th of never.

Bill was one of a kind. I enjoyed many a Boy Scout activity with Bill and will miss great conversations with him around the campfire. Condolences to his family. Rest In Peace.

So sorry to hear about Bill's passing. My husband, Dickie Dodd worked with Bill in San Angelo for several years back in the 80's. He and Bill were good friends. I lost Dickie on Feb. 12, 2018. I know what you all are going through and I hate that for you. May God bless each one of you and hold you all close at this time. My prayers are with you all. Brenda
