I Merchantville Lodge # 119 F&AM announces the death of Brother William F. Megargle Jr due to COVID-19


It is with sadness and regret that I have to announce that Brother William F. Megargle Jr, a member of our Lodge for over 40 years, has passed to the Lodge on High. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there is not a Masonic funeral service planned at this time. When there is more information we will pass it along.

Please keep the families of Brother Megargle in your thoughts and prayers.

Long Beach Twp. – William F. Megargle Jr. died Thursday, April 16, 2020 at his home in Long Beach Township, NJ at the age of 83. Born 1936 in Camden, NJ, Bill graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in 1954 and earned a BS in Chemical Engineering and later an MBA from Drexel University. He worked early in his career at Campbell Soup, then spent most of his professional life at FMC Corporation as a packaging engineer. He remained professionally active long after retirement, consulting and also serving as Treasurer for the Technical Bag Committee of the Institute of Packaging Professionals into 2020. A longtime resident of South Jersey, Bill remained engaged throughout his life in local organizations, including the Pennsauken Lions Club, the Merchantville Masonic Lodge #119, and the West Jersey Numismatic Society, serving many terms as Treasurer for these organizations.

Bill is survived by his loving wife Carolyn (nee McCauley); his three daughters, Lisa Megargle (Glenn) George, Sharon (Todd) Foust, and Eileen (Peter) Tronosky; eight grandchildren; and a large extended family and network of friends.

The family will announce a memorial service for him at a later date. For service updates and condolences please visit www.gaskillbrown.com.
