LOCK HAVEN –Dozens of family members and friends wished Bill Eisemann happy birthday last Sunday in the banquet room at Haywood’s on the Green.

Bill celebrated his 95th birthday and was surprised by daughter Christine McGinniss and son David Eisemann, who arranged the time of celebration that included cake, coffee and lots of conversation.

A Navy veteran, Bill’s a retired teacher, having taught chemistry and physics at Lock Haven Senior High School for 35 years.

He also dabbled in local politics, serving stints as Clinton County commissioner, Lock Haven city councilman and mayor of Lock Haven.

Bill still drives and is actively involved in many local organizations, and his church, Covenant United Methodist in Lock Haven.

LANA MUTHLER/THE EXPRESS Bill Eisemann talks with Carol Brown while shaking hands with her husband, Judge Carson V. Brown.

A handsome man, he smiled often as he made his way around the banquet room shaking hands and talking to the many friends he’s made over the years, and sat proudly in a chair, surrounded by his family in front of the stone fireplace for photographs.

He seemed to enjoy all the attention and he certainly deserved it. He’s a man who has spent his life in service to his community.

And that’s a wonderful thing!
