May 17, 1940 — April 22, 2022

William R. "Bill" Plante, Sr., 81, of Manchester died unexpectedly on April 22, 2022, at his residence.
Born in Littleton on May 17, 1940, he was the son of the late Natalie Plante. He was a graduate of Libson High School and worked as a machinist for many years before retiring from Texas Instruments in 2001.

He was unique man with a "colorful" language. He was vivacious and "full of it". Bill had a great sense of humor, enjoyed life and was quite the prankster. Above all else, he will be remembered as a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend.
Surviving family members include his beloved wife of 37 years, Judith P. (Preble) Plante of Manchester; three children, William Plante, Jr. of Sanford, ME, Peter Plante of Washburn, Me; and his daughter Stephanie; three grandchildren; five great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
