It is with deep sadness that the City of Snellville announces the death of Planning Commission Chairman G. William “Bill” Kingsbury.
He passed this morning on his 79th birthday.
Over the past five years, Bill battled health issues while diligently serving in his capacity with the city.
He was appointed to the city Planning Commission in September of 2015, was voted Vice Chairman in January of 2018 and Chairman in June of 2018.
“This is a big loss for city and community,” said City Manager Butch Sanders. “He was valued participant in all of the city’s conversations. His voice and input will be missed.”
Kingsbury was also a member of the Downtown Development Authority.
“He was a great human, a mentor, and one of Snellville’s best community advocates,” said Planning and Development Director Jason Thompson. “Bill never missed an opportunity to serve.”
A socially distanced memorial service is being planned for Saturday, April 3.
