He came to the United States as a young man and brought with him the trade he learned as a boy in Italy. He was a barber and eventually bought a barber shop on Cortlandt Street in North Tarrytown. He was affectionately known as ‘Red’ the Barber. The business began to change in the early 1970’s and he decided to close the shop. He went to work for General Motors where he worked until his retirement

Bill was also an accomplished musician. While he played the violin for the Yonkers Symphony, he also played the accordion, organ, piano and just about every stringed instrument.

He was president of I.T.A.L.O. Bill was also very involved in the early days of soccer in this country. He was a 35 year member of the Eastern District Soccer League and was inducted into its Hall of Fame.

He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren Michael, Liam Thomas, Danny, Hailey and Kaitlyn; his sisters Angie Farrell and Delia Ackerman; Shirley Marmo, the mother of his children as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
