He was predeceased by his father William, his wife Michele and his grandson Elijah. William served his country in the U.S. Air Force, after which he embarked on a career as a NYS Trooper. He loved being a State Trooper and it was a great source of pride and joy in his life. He retired in 2004 from Troop C in Kirkwood. He enjoyed travel, was a skilled woodworker, loved animals, and he enjoyed his weekly poker games with his poker buddies. He loved to make people laugh and will always be remembered for his sense of humor and making people feel good. In recent years he continued his service to the community by serving as a Town of Windsor Justice, a position he held until his death. A gathering to celebrate his life will be held during the week of the July 4th 2018. More information will be provided at a later date.
