William H. (Jr.) Maier

April 9, 1950 ~ December 10, 2019 (age 69)


Bath-William Maier, age 69, died on December 10, 2019 of complications from ALS. 

     Bill was born April 9, 1950 in Summit, NJ.  The son of William and Ruth Maier and brother to Sue Maier Slavik.

     He spent his childhood in Chatham, NJ graduating from Chatham High School in 1968.  He attended the University of Maine at Orono and graduated in 1972 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Natural Resource Management.  After marrying Ellen Goodrich, they settled in Bath in 1975 where they raised their three children on the banks of the Kennebec River.  Bill made many connections in and around Bath through his work as a Land Use Consultant. 

      He was an avid skier, outdoorsman and spiritual seeker and spent as much time as he could on the river, in the woods or on the slopes. The final years of his life were an exercise in loss, but Bill never lost his humor or his determination to make the most of what he had.  He was held up and supported by a vast angel team of dedicated family, friends and caregivers.

       Bill is survived by his son, Erik and his wife, Faye and their two daughters, Isabel and Eleanor; son, Scott and his three children, Owen, Elliott, Teryn; and daughter, Amy and her husband Trip.
