William "Bill" Paul Gank ,
48, of Terra Alta, WV passed away unexpectedly in his home on November 11th, 2021. He lived with his fiancée DR. Laurette Flannery whom he loved from the day they met. Bill Gank had to kick, punch and crawl his way through life. He was a man of his word and helped anyone in need. Despite the obstacles life handed him, Bill accomplished his GED and was inducted into the Carpenters Union where he served as a journeyman. Bill had a hard exterior and a heart of gold.
Bill was the son of Stephen Roger Gank of Hutton, MD and the late Madeline Virginia "Sue" Miller Gank. He was born July 1, 1973 in Oakland, MD.
In addition to his father, he is survived by his children Mia S. Cannon of Mt. Lake Park and Cody W. Gank of Terra Alta; step children, Tyler Warner of Fairfield and Ashley Civiero of Waynesboro, Larry Harvey Jr. and Joselyne Trice; daughter-in-law, Brianna Stevens; Brian's in-laws, Braiden Ashby and Kristy Goff; brothers, Brent Gank of Hutton and Bobby Tasker of WV; sisters, Amber Childers of Terra Alta and Misty Wiles of Clarksburg; his former spouse, Christine Harris and Joy S. Gank; step grandchildren, Ava Warner, Elijah Carter, and Rosalina Civiero.
In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by his son, Brian Paul Gank.
There will be a private family memorial service with cremation provided by Arthur H. Wright Funeral Home, Terra Alta.
In lieu of flowers or any other gifts of condolence, William wished to have donations made to the St. Jude's Hospital. He wanted this because this foundation provided Laurette with her life saving biventricular pacemaker and he wanted to be part of "saving more people who do good in the world".
