William C. Pfeffer

June 19, 1944 - March 21, 2014
William C. Pfeffer

William “Bill” C. Pfeffer of Wilmington, NC took his final ride on Friday, March 21st 2014 at the age of 69.  Bill succumbed to the effects of a stroke but not before putting up one final fight. 

Bill is survived by his wife, Jody Jones Pfeffer; brother, John; three sons, Adam, Mathew, Kurt; and beautiful grandchildren that adored him. Bill was born to Marie Alice and William A. Pfeffer in New York City; served his country in the US Army from 1965-1967 and later retired as a Sergeant from the New York City Police Department. Bill’s big heart will be missed by many.  As a true patriot, he taught us all much about selflessness, sacrifice, respect, and honor.  He devoted much of his energy to support his country and so many causes he held dear.  Above all, his bond and love for friends and family will most certainly be missed.  Every man dies, not every man truly lives.  Life is short, forgive quickly, love honestly, laugh easy, keep it simple, ride often, ride free, no regrets.

A Visitation will be held Monday, March 24, 2014 from 6:00 until 9:00 PM at the Wilmington Funeral Chapel.

  A memorial Service will be held 1:00 PM Tuesday, March 25, 2014 at St Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, 12 North 6th Street, Wilmington, NC 28401.

    Bill Pfeffer is one of the best Cops and one of the few Great Bosses I have ever had the good fortune to work with and especially to consider a friend. He always had that great respect for working Cops that seemed to elude so many other supervisors. He spoke up for them, fought for them, and took the time to try and help along the many rookies who passed through the 71. He had that rare quality that made him seem like an old school Boss, who never forgot where he came from. Bill was a Vet, a dedicated Cop, and from what I understand a great Father who brought his kids up with a love of Duty, Honor and Country. He could do no less, it was in his blood.... Please keep his wife Jody and his sons Adam, Matthew and Kurt in your prayers. Bobby E

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.
