William Albert Caterson

March 29, 1938 ~ August 3, 2022 (age 84)


William Albert Caterson went home to be with the Lord on August 3, 2022. He was known as “Bill” to his family and friends. Bill was born at Mound Park Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, March 29, 1938. He attended Euclid Elementary, Mirror Lake Junior High and St. Petersburg High School before joining the United States Marines Corps in 1956. After basic training, he was stationed in San Diego, California for a brief time, but spent most of his stent in the USMC in Hawaii until 1959.

Upon returning to St. Petersburg after his service in the Marines, Bill resumed delivering furniture for Maas Brothers Department Store until 1988. He also worked for Kimberly Quality Care delivering medical supplies until his retirement in 1995. Bill was a member of Central Christian Church from the mid - 1960s until the late 1990s. He served as a Sunday School teacher, Deacon and various other capacities as well while attending. During this era, he spent his leisure time singing, dabbling in his stamp collection, watching sports and taking family vacations to the mountains of Georgia and North Carolina. Bill always had a quick dry wit about him, and sometimes even a “dad” joke. In retirement, Bill enjoyed reading, listening to music, watching classic television, playing games, attending family gatherings, but mostly working on family genealogy with his sister, Marilyn.

Bill is preceded in death by his mother Lucille (1971), his father Albert (1967), as well as his daughter Debbie (1990) and sister Estelle (1997). He leaves behind his daughters Peggy Kruml (Larry) of Castle Pines, Colorado, Marianne Caterson of St. Petersburg, Florida, Cheryl Skaggs (Robert) and step-grandsons Grayson and Asher Skaggs of Trinity, Florida, his granddaughter Barbara Sprenger and great-grand daughter, Eliana, and great-grand son, Simeon, of Aurora, Colorado. His sister, Marilyn “Kitty” Shea, resides in St. Petersburg, Florida, as do many nieces, nephews and great- and even great-great nieces and nephews throughout Florida and the United States.
