Some thoughts from Kerry-Ann
Bill or Billy as he was known to his family, and I have been in love for 26 years and share our home with our two lovely fur babies Max and Rocco. Living in Newark for the entire time. We always enjoyed the beautiful park and the amazing Cherry Blossoms in April. Taking drives on the weekends, often visiting AC and taking a chance with the one arm bandit. I always looked to him to give me the daily update on the World….and the Weather. He made me open my eyes and see things in a whole new way.
The love for his Nephew James (Jim) was without boundaries. He truly considered him his Son and always wanted to make him a priority. Jim and Bill were the dynamic duo.
He was a lover of animals, always looking to rescue his next fur baby. He spent years researching Mafia history and accumulated an extensive collection of pictures and information. Politics was an area that he enjoyed, especially the active banter of the daily going-ons on political TV . He was a avid baseball fan and could give you statistics off the top of his head on any and all records. His favorite team was the LA Dodgers.
In honor of his love of Cats, in leu of flowers a donation to the Blue Moon Cat Sanctuary in Palm coast. Florida. This is an organization that his Brother and Sister -in -law are active volunteers in. They work to give feral cats a safe environment to live out their lives. https://www.bluemooncatsanctuary.com/donate
