Doc William "Bill" Mooney

May 16, 1955 — January 29, 2024


William "Bill" Mooney, known affectionately as Doc Mooney, passed away peacefully at his residence on January 29, 2024. Born on May 16, 1955, in Princeton, New Jersey, Doc led a fulfilling life and leaves behind a legacy that will be treasured by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

From a young age, Bill displayed immense potential and unwavering determination. He pursued higher education with zeal, earning his DMD from the University of Connecticut. This accomplishment not only illuminated his intellectual brilliance but also denoted his commitment to excellence in his chosen field.

After completing his education, Bill went on to establish his own practice in Colchester, Vermont. Through the years, he proudly served the community as the owner and esteemed dentist of his practice until his well-deserved retirement. Patients were always at ease under Doc Mooney's care due to his warm demeanor and genuine concern for their well-being.

Family was also of the utmost importance to Bill. He is survived by his beloved sister Patty Seitz and her husband Don of New Jersey, along with 2 nieces,1 nephew, 4 great nieces, 2 great nephews and numerous cousins. Bill and Patty’s relationship was forged through shared experiences and unbreakable sibling love. They stood side by side during both joyous occasions and moments of adversity, providing unwavering support for one another. He was predeceased by his loving wife Kaye.

Beyond dentistry, Bill was a compassionate and caring individual whose presence uplifted those around him. His intrinsic ability to connect with others fostered countless friendships throughout his lifetime. One person who holds a special place in Bill's heart is Judy Allinson of Colchester, VT. They shared a deep bond founded for each other and their love of the outdoors and hot rod car shows.

Outside of professional pursuits and familial ties, Bill was passionate about embracing life's simple pleasures. He found solace in nature, whether it be a romp through the woods with a bird dog and a good friend, hunting grouse and woodcock or sitting in a duck blind watching the sun come up and waiting for the birds to fly.

One of his favorite outdoor pursuits was to hunt wild turkeys. With this in mind, to honor and celebrate the remarkable life of Bill Mooney, a Celebration of Life will take place on May 1, 2024 (the first day of turkey season) at the Minor Funeral and Cremation Center in Milton, VT. The ceremony will commence at 3:00 p.m. providing an opportunity for family, friends and cherished acquaintances to gather, share stories and pay their final respects to this exceptional individual. It will undoubtedly be a fitting tribute to a man who touched the lives of so many.

Doc Mooney's departure from this world leaves behind immeasurable grief and loss. Yet, as we bid farewell to this extraordinary soul, let us remember the indelible impact he made on each person lucky enough to have shared in his journey. May his legacy serve as a guiding light, inspiring us all to strive for excellence, cultivate meaningful connections with others, and embrace life's simple joys.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to a local animal shelter of your choice in memory of William "Bill" Mooney — an incredible dentist, loyal friend, and beloved brother. Camouflage attire is not only appropriate but encouraged.
