SUNBURY — Senior Judge William H. Wiest passed away Saturday.
The longtime county judge was celebrated as a fixture of kindness and generosity in Northumberland County, especially in the Dalmatia area, where he resided for most his life.
Though perhaps best known as a judge, Wiest was a notable philanthropist. In addition to other charitable acts, he and his wife, Karen, helped initiate a program through the Spreading Antlers Children’s Foundation that brought local elementary school students to the Sunbury YMCA for swimming lessons. The couple also established a scholarship program in memory of two of their children for Line Mountain School District students.
