William J. Pautler, Jr

January 8, 1984 ~ October 4, 2022 (age 38) 38 Years Old


William F Pautler, Jr, 38, passed away on October 4, 2022 from complications due to Covid, while on vacation in Ireland. Will was born on January 8, 1984 in Niskayuna at Bellevue Hospital to William and Lorraine (Wilkes) Pautler.                     

Will graduated from Averill Park High School in 2002 and he attended Hudson Valley Community College. After college, he worked at Home Depot and then as a Motor Vehicle Representative at the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles since 2008.

He was always proud to announce the many kudos he received from his clients, ever the smile on the face of state government. 

Will was most loved by his parents and his devoted girlfriend, Heather Kearney. He had a beautiful, welcoming spirit and will be genuinely missed by all including his childhood friends Jess Daus-Warner, Bill Daus and Kurt Meichtry. He is also survived by his uncles and aunts, John (Ann) Pautler, James (Kathleen) Pautler, Beverly Maddaloni and Patricia (Kevin) Larson, his many cousins and his neonatal nurse and lifelong friend Maureen Devine. 

There will be no services. A celebration of Will’s life will be held later.
