In Memoriam, William H. “Bill” Woolworth III

We are heartbroken at the unexpected passing of our Co-County Wellness board president William “Bill” Woolworth in March.

Bill has been a steward in our community and to our organization for many years. This has been a devastating loss for so many, especially for those of us lucky enough to call him friend.

He was a native of Berks County and attended Exeter Township High School where he also earned his Eagle Scout. He was a graduate of West Chester University and received his MBA from the University of Baltimore. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Widener University School of Law.

Bill had worked most recently as the Executive Vice President, Chief Risk Officer with Malvern Bank NA, Paoli, PA and had previously served as Executive Vice President, Chief Auditor of Customers Bank. He was a Certified Internal Auditor and recently served as an adjunct professor at Penn State Berks Campus. He was also an adjunct professor at Rosemont College in the MBA program.

Bill and his longtime partner and husband, MD Monir Moniruzzaman, were the owners of Dans at Green Hills Reading, PA, for the past 16 years. The restaurant fulfilled both his dream as an entrepreneur of fine dining and as a sommelier. Wild Bill, as he was affectionately known, loved to cook!

He had a passion for community and volunteerism. He loved to help everyone. He was currently serving as President of the Board at Co-County Wellness Services. He previously served on the Caron Foundation Audit, Risk and Compliance Committee. Bill was a board member of the Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He served as a board member for Junior Achievement of Greater Reading and Lehigh Valley. He was an advisory Board member for the University of Baltimore, Merrick School of Business. As a former student of Junior Achievement, he attributed his passion for business because of his JA experience. He was an active volunteer and contributor to the Yocum Institute of Arts Education. He was a member of Nativity Lutheran Church, Reading.

He loved going on cruises and loved trying out new dishes in his kitchen. He had a passion for life, his family and friends.

The Rev. Carol B. Kehler, his pastor, and Carolyn Bazik of Co-County Wellness officiated his services.

If you would like to make a donation in Bill’s memory to Co-County Wellness Services, kindly send to: CCWS PO Box 8626, Reading, PA 19603-8626

Thank you for supporting the work we do and the mission Bill supported and loved for so many years. Bill’s work will live on in the many lives he touched with his kindness and generosity
