We regret to inform the Williamson community of the passing yesterday of our cherished co-worker and longtime machine tool technology director, Carmen Martella, after a long battle with illness.

President Michael Rounds said, “It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of our friend and co-worker Carmen Martella. Yesterday he lost his long and courageous fight against an illness that took him from us all too soon. Carmen devoted himself entirely to Williamson and there was nothing he enjoyed more than running his shop and teaching his students for the last 31 years ­— and those students are the great legacy he leaves behind. We will miss him greatly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.”

At this time, we ask you to respect the privacy of Carmen’s family. We will announce funeral arrangements when we learn them. Please keep Carmen and his family in your prayers.

Carmen was such a great guy in high school and later when we happened to bump into each other in Acme in Aston, PA years later! I found out after that his son, Carmen III, went to Sun Valley HS with my children. 

RIP Carmen. You were always one of the friendliest people I've ever known.
