November 18, 1935 — April 12, 2024


William Charles Sirman, 88, a resident of Valdosta, peacefully passed away on Friday, April 12, 2024. Born in Valdosta on November 18, 1935, he was the beloved son of the late John Hamilton Sirman and Flossie Belle Harris Sirman. William's journey began at Lake Park High School before embarking on a career that took him from Western Union in Albany to Burroughs Corporation in Pennsylvania. His dedication led him to serve the federal government as a civil servant, working with the FAA at the Air Traffic Control Center in Hampton, GA, in the mid-1970s until his well-deserved retirement after 30 years in 2000. He was a proud member of the Elks Lodge and the Moose Lodge.

He was preceded in death by his first wife, Mona Davis Sirman, second wife, JoAnn Coppedge Fletcher Sirman, and several siblings.
