Bill Ogletree, 77, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, at home in Ocoee, Florida, with his wife and daughter by his side. 

Bill was born on Oct. 29, 1943, in Orlando, Florida, at Florida Sands and Sanitarium now known as AdventHealth. He is the son of the late James T. and Lura Mae (Clark) Ogletree.

Bill is survived by his loving wife, Helen L. (Klotz) Ogletree; and daughter, Jill D. Ogletree; as well as his nieces, Jo J. Reeves, of Oak Hill, and Leslie Camille (Camie) Bentley, of Winter Garden.

Bill loved his hometown of Winter Garden, where he lived and worked most of his life. As a commercial salesman for Ace Hardware in Winter Garden, Florida, formerly known as Bray Hardware, Bill was known and loved for his personable service. His customers walked into Ace Hardware and yelled, “Mr. Bill!” Everyone enjoyed the best service possible and left with a smile. Bill was knowledgeable from hardware to history—especially Winter Garden history. Bill was a proud veteran of the Vietnam War, serving in both the U.S. Navy and Marines. He loved his country until the very end. Winter Oak Funeral Home & Cremations.
