William D. Walsh

November 2, 1959 — May 16, 2022

William D. "Bill" Walsh, AKA Freckle, 62, of New Milford, New Jersey, passed away peacefully on May 16th, 2022 surrounded by his loving family. Bill was born November 2, 1959, to the late Mary (Ryan) and Willam J. Walsh in Bergenfield. After graduating from Bergenfield High School in 1977, he started his career at Cushman & Wakefield and was a member of Local 68, International Union of Operating Engineers. He had a generous heart of gold, never hesitating to help people out. Bill loved the New York Yankees, family vacations to Barnegat Light, spoiling his great nieces and nephews who lovingly referred to him as “Silly Billy”, playing the lotto, parasailing, bungee jumping, fishing and hunting. Bill leaves a tremendous legacy. Bill was many things but nothing was greater than the title of “Dad.” He spent many years coaching little league baseball and going on camping trips for boy scouts. Bill and his son Connor did everything together. Whether it was something as simple as watching their favorite movies on the couch with one another or jumping out of airplanes, they loved making memories together.  His greatest joy was spending time with his son Connor, nieces and nephews. He will be remembered for his resilience in the face of adversity, his devotion to his family, and his ability to make new friends everywhere. Bill was a very proud member of the Bergenfield Elks, his presence will be missed by his many friends there. He was also a best friend to Kevin W. for over 60 years. He will be profoundly missed by many. Bill is predeceased by his beloved son Connor. He is survived by his brothers, Thomas Walsh and his wife Diana, Kevin Walsh and his wife Eileen, many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. A wake will be held 4-8 p.m. on Thursday, May 19, at Riewerts Memorial Home, 187 S. Washington Ave., Bergenfield. A celebration of his life will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 20 at St. Joseph's Church, Oradell. Interment at Hackensack Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Bill’s name to support Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
