He was preceded in death by his daughters, Alanna Shannep and Mary Harrington and his brothers Derry and Jack.
Bill immigrated to the United States in 1949 and married Flossie on April 18, 1953. He served in the US Army and was retired with a disability. He became a successful general contractor building residential and multifamily units in the San Francisco area. His devotion to the Irish community was felt by so many of colleagues and friends and is especially evidenced in his involvement with the building of the Irish Cultural Center and his membership of both the Rebel Cork Benevolent Association and Ancient Order of the Hibernians.
