Obituary

HAMPDEN – Willard C. “Bill” Carleton, 91, passed away March 8, 2020, at a Bangor hospital. He was born December 13, 1928, in South Union, the son of Raymond and Miriam (Turner) Carleton.

Bill attended schools in Union. He worked at Sullivan Ford Sales in Bangor for many years, and later owned B&L Auto Sales in Hampden with his wife, Louise. Bill’s first love was racing cars, earning him the nickname, “Wild Bill”. He was a 2005 inductee into the Maine Motor Sports Hall of Fame, winning well over 100 races during his racing career. Bill also enjoyed racing snowmobiles during the winter. He was a member of the Hampden Kiwanis, and Goodwill Riders Snowmobile Club of Hampden.

In addition to his parents, Bill was predeceased by 2 brothers, and one sister. He is survived by a daughter from a previous marriage, Dawn Towers; two grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, and a special friend, David Webster.

A Funeral Mass will be held 11a.m., Saturday, March 21, 2020, at St. Paul the Apostle Parish, St. Matthew’s Catholic Church, 70 Western Avenue, Hampden. Relatives and friends are invited to share conversation and refreshments in the parish hall immediately following the Mass, Saturday. Private interment will be in Lakeview Cemetery, Hampden, in the spring. Those wishing to remember Bill in a special way may make gifts in his memory to Good Shepherd Food Bank, PO Box 1807, Auburn, ME 04211-1807.
