Bill was predeceased by his father, William L. Fadden, Sr., in 2001.
He is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Margaret “Peggy” (Jaquin); his four children whom he adored: Timothy of Syracuse, and Amy, Colleen and Mary, all living at home; his mother, Bernice Fadden, and brother, Michael Fadden, of North Syracuse; his father-in-law, Charles Jaquin; his many Jaquin brothers and sisters in-law; several nieces, nephews, and cousins, including Kevin Williams; and his beloved pet and best girl, Gracie.
Bill will always be remembered for his witty sense of humor and his ability to make everyone laugh. He was a wonderful father to his four children. They were his pride and joy.
