William “Bill” Sencabaugh, 80 of Littleton, NH passed away on September 5, 2021. Bill was the son of the late William Elmer and Lillian (Reinold) Sencabaugh of Medford, MA. Bill was born in Medford, MA where he graduated valedictorian of Medford Vocational Technical High School in 1959. He followed this by serving his country in the Construction Battalion SEABEES of the United States Navy. He was a lifelong Local 103 Electrician and an avid Ham Radio Operator. Bill’s true passion was public safety and radio communications. This passion led him to found TAC-2 Communications in both MA and NH where he was president and owner until his retirement. TAC-2 provided top tier public safety radio communications throughout New England for over 50 years. Upon moving to NH, Bill joined the Littleton Fire Department rising through the ranks to Captain. His desire to help anyone in need and his expertise in radio communications made for a perfect fit. He was active with the Eureka Hose Company #1 Volunteer Fire Department Association and sat on the executive board as treasurer. His quick wit and sense of humor will be missed by all that knew him.
