Obituary of William D. Molyneux

Please share a memory of William to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
William Molyneux of Dansville passed away May 25, 2024, at age 75. Bill was born in Dansville in 1949 to David and Barbara (Milligan) Molyneux. He was a 1967 graduate of Dansville High School and attended Alfred State College before serving in the United States Coast Guard from 1968 to 1972. In 1975, Bill started Molyneux Construction, and was well known in the community for his honesty and impeccable work. A modest, generous man, Bill always saw the good in people and made friends easily. In 1987 Bill was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses and from then on, tirelessly volunteered his time teaching others about the Bible and the hope that God's Kingdom promises for a better life now and in the future. Bill was a beloved elder in the Dansville Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses Bill was a great storyteller and had a keen sense of humor. Playing cards and board games with his sons when they were growing up, and kayaking and camping with them were among his fondest memories. Whenever he would be the (inevitable) winner of the Monopoly games they played, Bill would jokingly apologize and say, "Sorry guys. I'm a businessman." He loved to take walks with his family and contemplate the beauty of creation. The last several years, Bill enjoyed spending time with his granddaughter, Scout, whom he adored. Bill is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Helen (Brownell) Molyneux, his beloved sons, Michael Molyneux, David (Whitney) Molyneux, and Daniel (Taylor) Molyneux, his cherished sister, Susan (Alex) Barr, granddaughter Scout Helena Molyneux, and sisters-in-law Cathy (Dave) Reinholtz, Deb (Jimmy) Walker, and Cindy Mansfield (John Westfall), as well as several cousins, nephews, and a niece. Bill was preceded in death by his parents, his brother-in-law Jimmy Walker, his brother-in-law David Brownell, sister-in-law Candy Brownell, and his cousin, James Molyneux. The family would also like to express gratitude to the CareFirst Hospice team, Painted Post, for their compassionate and thoughtful assistance these past few months.
