Obituary

William “Bill” Plaskett, 74, passed away on January 9, 2016 at home in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. He was born January 4, 1942 and raised in Harlem, New York.

As a youth, Bill volunteered with VISTA, an organization that focuses on decreasing poverty in urban areas. At 17, his call to service led him to join the United States Army where he served in Korea. In 1972, Bill moved to Florida where he joined the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). He dedicated 30 years as a journeyman lineman for the Utilities Commission of New Smyrna Beach. Bill was a true outdoorsman. He was an avid fisherman, boater, gardener, skillful carpenter and craftsman. He thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in nature, and spent his free time charting the waters of the Indian River Lagoon or relaxing with his family in Bethune Beach.

Bill is survived by his soulmate, Lynne Plaskett. Their children Lisa Plaskett, Clifford Reynolds, Kevin Plaskett, Kala Plaskett, Mikel Plaskett; many loving grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and friends. He is preceded in death by his son, William “Billy/Jihad” Plaskett.

Services will be privately held. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations in his honor, be made to the Marine Discovery Center, 520 Barracuda Blvd, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32169.

    God, grant me the Serenity<br />
To accept the things I cannot change...<br />
Courage to change the things I can,<br />
And Wisdom to know the difference.<br />
Living one day at a time,<br />
Enjoying one moment at a time,<br />
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.<br />
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,<br />
Not as I would have it.<br />
Trusting that He will make all things right<br />
if I surrender to His will.<br />
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,<br />
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.<br />
Amen.
