Obituary of William Russell Putnam

William "Billy" R. Putnam, age 83 of Mansfield, PA, passed away on Monday, October 2, 2023 at The Green Home in Wellsboro, PA. Billy was born March 12, 1940 in Blossburg, PA, a son of Donald H. and Thelma B. (Bailey) Putnam. He worked as a mechanic and then Service Manager for Dahlgren Chevrolet for many years. Later he worked as a mechanic for Costy's Chrysler Plymouth. Billy was a veteran of the US Army. In his younger years, he roofed houses. He always enjoyed taking junk and making it into something useful. In his later years, he was the local repairman for lawn mowers, weed eaters, rototillers, or anything with a motor. Billy's woodworking skills were exceptional, and he has left behind many beautiful treasures for his loved ones.
