On October 7, 2019, Bill Romine entered the kingdom of heaven and was reunited with his beloved Norma, who he so desperately missed.
Bill was born in Akron, Ohio on January 24, 1929 to Gomer and Beatrice Romine. Bill lived in Cuyahoga Falls for 61 years. He leaves behind his brother, Dorsey “Dutch” Romine (Ann), his son Bill Romine (Cathy), daughter, Alicia McFarland and a large blended family including step children, grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors and friends. All were loved by him and loved him.
In his youth, Bill attended Hower Trade school. He enlisted in the US Army and served in the post WWII European Theatre. Upon his return, Bill had several jobs including a 17-minute stint with one of the large rubber companies. He would tell the story that he just knew that wasn’t for him. He was a loyal employee of the Ford Motor Company where he spent 39 years in the Walton Hills Stamping Plant often working 7 days per week.
Bill was a hardworking and humble man who lived a simple life. He enjoyed camping, boating and fishing. He and Norma were fortunate to be able to travel and relax in their early retirement years. They visited Europe and enjoyed several cruises and cross-country car trips. He looked forward to “Cousin’s Breakfast” and regular meetings of the David Hill Gang. “Porchville” was a place often enjoyed by Bill and Norma.
