William Archie Blount peacefully passed away early Saturday morning on March 16, 2019, after a long illness. William, who many of his dear friends knew as "Bill," will be greatly missed.

He later moved to Providence, RI for approximately two years before heading out to California. He returned to New Jersey after a few years and resided in Asbury Park. While living in Asbury Park he worked at Monmouth Mall Macy's in retail for a few years before his disability. William "Bill" resided in Ocean Township for the last ten or more years.
