William A. "Bill" Mattingly III, 70, of St. Joe, passed away May 15, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. He was born February 27, 1948, to the late William A. Mattingly Jr. and Helen Elizabeth Mattingly. Bill served in the Navy during the Vietnam Era and received a Navy Achievement Medal. He was the founding president of the Kentucky Antique Farm Machinery Association, and one of the original members of the St. Joe Fire Department. Bill was retired after 34 years as a machinist with Big Rivers Electric and was also a farmer and a business owner, owning Mattingly Machine. He loved going to auctions, collecting antique tractors, and BBQing. Bill loved his '66 Mustang and enjoyed showing it at car shows. He was known for helping his neighbors solve mechanical issues, and in the afternoon, you may have found him drinking beer with his relatives and friends. Bill was of the Catholic faith, and a member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church. He will be very much missed by everyone who knew him. Along with his parents, Bill was preceded in death by a son, Brian Anthony Mattingly in 1972.
