      William G. Bortnick (1949-2011)

      William (Bill) G. Bortnick, 62, of 20462 Reeds Rd., Conneautville, in Conneaut Township, passed away Monday, January 17, 2011 at 11:55 p.m., surrounded by his family and friends. He was born in Meadville, January 13, 1949.

      His parents were Pete Sr. and Mary Melnick Bortnick.
      He was married to the love of his life, Cynthia Traut, on July 22, 1978. Everyone there had said it was a wedding to remember.

      He served in the Army in Vietnam.

      He worked as a millwright out of 2235 Local of Pittsburgh, and was a member of the Linesville V.F.W. He was also a member of the Palmer United Methodist Church.


      He was a man who always had a kind and loving word to say about everyone. You could say his kind heart matched his physic. Most of all, he loved his family; each and every one of us. His wife, with whom he had so many wonderful times; there was never one without the other. They would go fishing and camping together all the time. Of course they couldn't have gone too many times without the grandkids. But there was "Old Precious", as mom would call it; my dad's 67 C-10 Chevy truck, my dad's other passion. As for all of his brothers and sisters, they could have only been so blessed with a brother so great to their children and them. For us, our dad was just great and we were so lucky; and the life lessons were amazing. We were truly blessed. As for his grandkids, they were the apple of his eye. The biggest joy in his heart. He never missed anything; not a game or recital, or an opportunity to have them around as much as possible. He taught all three of them to tie their shoes. We could all have hoped for something that special: that one person who was our biggest fan, our loudest cheerleader, and most trusted friend.


      Survived by wife, Cynthia Lee Bortnick, at home; and two daughters, Samantha Lee Bortnick of Meadville, and Melodie Renee Fusco and her husband, Joshua Fusco, of Linesville; three grandchildren, Hailey, Hollie, and Joslyn; his brothers and sisters, Pete and Liz Bortnick of Fla., David and Barbara Bortnick of Concord, Ohio, James and Marie Bortnick of Conneautville, Donald Bortnick, Sr. of Conneautville, Alice and Bob Barbee of S.C., Doreen and Russ Nelson of Conneautville; along with several nieces and nephews, as well as great nieces and nephews.


      He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother, Larry Bortnick.


      Friends may call at White-Cool Funeral Home, Conneautville on Friday. Calling hours from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

      Funeral Service will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. at Conneautville Church of Christ, 1308 Main St., Conneautville, with Pastor Matt Rendulic officiating.
