William- known as Bill, Billy, Dad, Dirtson or Nonno was the kindest, sweetest and most gentle man. Had a huge heart and a soft soul.

He loved to do dishes after Sunday meals with the family and clean the kitchen so meticulously and then pass out on the couch with his grandkids all over him. Being an engineer for many years, he knew how to fi x it all and build it all. He loved fi sh, steak, and just all food in general in huge portions! He loved family visits and phone calls to check up on him… he loved going for massages or having personal training sessions or spending time with his best bud Al. He loved lounging around and snuggling his kitty cat. They were best friends. His biggest loves of his life were his 6 grandkids and boy did they adore their Nonno. Angelina, Robi and Roma loved their sleepovers at Nonno’s and used to fi ght to stay with him alone so they could get all his undivided attention. Taking rides to the dollar store to go on a shopping spree, lounging around and going for rides to get food… He was also well known at Roma’s beauty salon and had many great hairstyles by her… Rocco asked to go to Nonno’s house several times a day because he knew he had chocolate waiting for him! All the kids loved Face Timing him and the kitty every chance they could and he loved it too. Anthony loved taking rides with Carlo on the weekends to see Nonno, playing at the park near his house, and he so enjoyed playing monopoly in the living room with Nonno and Nonno showing him how to use his treadmill. Sophia loved his kitty, sitting on his lap, and showing Nonno all her toys. Most of allwe know he absolutely adored his two children Candice and Carlo more than anything in this whole world and the feeling was beyond mutual.
