William John Marz, 89, of Easton, passed from this world into heavenly glory on Monday, July 18, 2022.
Born August 16, 1932 in Easton, Pennsylvania, William was the son of the late Louis J. and Myrtle B. (Poff) Marz.

Bill was a member of the Phillipsburg Alliance Church and was loved by his church family. He faithfully served in the pew ministry and could be found every Monday morning in the church sanctuary, organizing the pew racks with hymnals, Bibles, visitor information and attendance sheets. Bill loved the Lord and it was evident in his life.
Bill was an avid train enthusiast. He was a member of the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians for 15 years, where he served as director, librarian and gift shop manager. He enjoyed the time spent with his fellow train enthusiasts and he cultivated life-long friendships with them.
Bill was very dear to many people and he will be greatly missed but we rejoice in knowing that he is in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He would want everyone to know about the Lord and to accept Him as their Savior and Lord also.
