William “Bill” Eury, born Jan. 31, 1942, was killed in a tragic accident on May 1, 2023, in Orlando.
He was respectfully and lovingly known as “Sea Ray Bill” by most during his more than 30+ years at Parker Boat Company in Winter Park. Bill loved boating, diving and snorkeling and spent hours on the rivers and waterways of Florida in his canoe and kayak. He was an avid wildlife and nature photographer.
Bill is survived by Phyllis, his friend and former wife of 46 years; his children, Scott, Jackie, Ryan, Kyle, Seth, Devin and Kalyn and their spouses Michelle, Ashley, Josh and Dolan. He also leaves behind his 13 grandchildren, Heather, David, Noah, Brendan, Ella, Gabby, Donavan, Logan, Landon, Melanie, Madeline, Charlotte and Levi; siblings, Peter, Steven, Michael, Pauline and Virginia.
Bill’s family will be having a Celebration of Life on the Wekiva River, one of his favorite places.
