William Douglas Maurer, 90, of Columbus, GA gently left this earth Sunday, January 15, 2023 surrounded by love, his family and his best friend. At his request, no service will be held. He was preceded in death by his devoted wife, Maria Maurer, his son, Bruce Greer and his daughter, Dorothy Smith.
Bill was born August 2, 1932 in Bethlehem, PA to the late Mary Pulley Maurer and William Maurer. He was one of four brothers who all preceded him; Jim, Bob and Tommy.
Bill joined the Navy at age 17 and set out on a life full of adventure. After four years of service, Bill opted for civilian life and began a long career with the US Postal Service. This career began on the mail train with the Railway Mail Service. He retired from the US Postal Service in 1989. Bill is best described as a lover of all souls and a man of endless curiosity. He enjoyed the outdoors, the ocean, gardening and all animals on the planet. He left this earth just as he lived, gently and full of love.
Bill is survived by his granddaughter, Stacey Doggett and wife Michelle Zeller, as well as extended family and caring friends.
