Proudly Serving the South Branch Valley Since 1969



William Frederick Munck

October 23, 1949-September 27, 2023


William (Bill) Frederick Munck, 73, of Frostburg, Maryland passed away on September 27, 2023, at the UPMC Western Maryland Hospital Center in Cumberland, Maryland.  He was the son of the late Gertrude and Carlton Munck.  In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by a sister, Patricia McCumber, and a brother, Carlton Munck.

Bill worked as a Rehabilitation Services Food Supervisor in both West Virginia and Kansas.  He retired from the position in Kansas and moved to Frostburg with his wife Susan. 

Bill was a former town councilman and mayor of the town of Valley Falls, Kansas.  Upon his return to Frostburg, he became very active in the Frostburg Lions Club serving as president for many years.  He was the winner of several Lions Club awards, the most notable being the Melvin Jones Award, the organization’s highest honor named for the founder of Lions International.  He and his wife, Susan, also a Lion member, co-founded the Summer Lunch Box Program which fed meals to children in the Frostburg area during summer time.  This Lions Club program was recognized and publicized by Lions Club International for its outstanding service to the community.

Bill was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Frostburg.  He participated in many activities of the Church including several mission trips to a South Dakota Indian reservation.

Bill received great enjoyment in helping people whether through Lions Club projects or those of the Church.  He was totally dedicated to serving others, a testament to the Lions Club motto, “We Serve.”

He is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Susan Taylor Baker Munck.  He is also survived by a nephew, Jason McCumber (Jana), nieces Kara Enos (Randy), Kelli Smith, and Jamie Holbert (Jason).   Also surviving are three children from a previous marriage, Katrina Munck, Jeffrey Munck, and William Munck Maguire.

A memorial service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Frostburg at 1:00 p.m. on October 14, 2023 with the Rev. Stan Howes officiating.  Because Bill donated his body to science, there will be no visitation. Memorial donations may be made to either the Frostburg Lions Club, 160 E. Main St., Frostburg, MD  21532 or the First Presbyterian Church, 33 Broadway, Frostburg, MD  21532.
