True to his passions, he loved playing poker machines, golfing, going on cruises and traveling the world with his late wife, Joan, of 61 years.

As such, William leaves a sister, Mary Guertin, two sons: William and his wife of Holyoke, MA, and Kenneth of Westfield, MA, as well as a daughter, Kimm and her husband of Ludlow, MA.
