William Charles Punches, age 76, of Oviedo, Florida, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, March 6, 2020.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 28, 1943. Bill graduated from Kelvyn Park High School and received an Associates of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Margie, of 36 years, his three children, Denise (Lon), Jill (Todd), and Jason (Leigh). Bill is also survived by his two sisters, Charmaine Waggener and Georgia “Bunny” Carney, along with many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his son, Dean, and siblings, Herbert, Robert, Dennis, Shirley, and Patricia.

He cherished his ten grandchildren and one great-grandchild and held a very special place in his heart for his two godsons, Chris Rezac and Joseph Viney.

Bill’s professional career began at Payco American Corp (established by his brother, Dennis) where he worked until the company was sold in 1996. He then created his own healthcare company, Patient Financial Medical Services, soon afterwards and remained as president until he sold it in 2010. Upon the sale, he became a consultant for the new ownership. Bill was a member of HFMA (Healthcare Financial Management Association) and a proud donor to Advent Health and Orlando Health hospitals.

Bill thoroughly enjoyed playing golf, fishing, and most of all, his family. He felt pure joy in helping so many folks along the way. Bill’s humble beginnings and generous heart gave him much compassion for helping others. He will be dearly missed and truly holds a special place in all our hearts.

Uncle Bill was one of the kindest and most generous men I have ever known. He would literally give the shirt off his back to help his fellow man. He will be greatly missed. The earth became a little poorer and heaven a little richer the day we lost him. RIP Uncle Bill. Say hi to Dad for me. Peace and comfort to all of us who loved him.
