Obituary for William R. "Bill" Owens

Bill Owens, 82, passed away Sunday November 1, 2020 in Clearfield.
Born November 21, 1937 in Clearfield, he was the son of Herschel and Bertha (Woodling) Owens of Bigler. He was a 1955 graduate of Clearfield Area High School. Additionally, he was a 1962 graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Banking at Bucknell University, and a 1968 graduate of The Stonier Graduate School of Banking at Rutgers University.
After serving in U.S. Navy for 3 years, he started his banking career at County National Bank in 1959. In the 1960's, he pioneered the bank’s entry into the computer era. Through his 32 years with the bank, he progressed through all levels of banking - from clerical and administrative to executive. After retiring from the bank as President in 1992, he continued to serve on the board of directors until 2007, the last seven years as chairman.
He served the community during his professional career in many ways on numerous boards and committees, including the Clearfield United Way, Clearfield Chamber of Commerce, Clearfield Foundation and the Industrial Park Authority. He was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church and numerous clubs and social organizations in Clearfield.
He married Elizabeth J. “Betty” Greslick of Curwensville on August 30, 1962. They enjoyed a full life in their 58 years together - laughing, loving, and living life to its fullest.
Betty survives along with two sons Jeff and Greg and seven grandchildren. Jeff resides in Arlington VA with his wife Donna and three children - Jack, Sara Jane and Kate. Greg resides in Richmond VA with his wife Michele and four children - Molly, Ellie, Meg, and Luci.
A celebration of life service will be held Saturday November, 7, 2020 at 11:00am at Trinity United Methodist Church in Clearfield with Reverend Hiram Westover and Pastor T.J. McCabe officiating. Friends will be received at the church from 10:00am until the time of services at 11:00am.
The family respectfully requests that attendees wear masks and practice safe distancing. We are considering everyone's health and well-being and doing what we can to mitigate risks given that we will have attendees from out of state.
