William "Bill" Charles Mauran

SOUTH GLENS FALLS — William "Bill" C. Mauran, 56, of South Glens Falls was called to heaven on Saturday, July 20, 2013, surrounded by his loving family after a battle with cancer.

He worked as a Correction Officer at Washington Correction Facility, for the New York State Comptroller, and the New York State Department of Labor until he became ill. He also preferred to be called "Wonky" or "Billium" by his friends and family. Bill dedicated his life to entertaining and making his friends and family laugh.
