In Memory of Bill Richardson, Bill Kowal,  Bill Ives, Jim Cimino, Jon Schoch and Denny DePalma and Gus Vasso

William “Bill” Kowal Jr., 

91, passed away Friday, December 8, 2017 at his Florida home in Sun City, Florida. He is survived by his wife, Janet Lyn (Iannaccone) Kowal; two daughters, Kimberly Kowal and Kyla (Gino) Caliendo; granddaughter Gabriella Caliendo; sister Lorraine Kowal Shaw; and former spouse Nancy Freeh Kowal Brown; and many nieces and nephews.

A full military honors cremation memorial service and celebration of his life will be held Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at 12:30 pm, with a reception following at the Sun City Center Funeral Home, 1851 Rickenbacker Drive. Please dress in golf attire to honor Bill. There will also be a memorial service in the Spring of 2018 in Rochester, New York.

Bill truly lived his life to the fullest, never failing to seize the day. After being discharged from the Navy after WWII, Bill pursued a fruitful career for the Eastman Kodak Company (Kodak Park). While he enjoyed his job, his greatest lifelong passion was golfing and he spent a majority of his retired life on the course, playing the game he loved most. Bill’s wit and charm illuminated every room he entered and the energy he radiated was palpable. Bill will be forever remembered as a loving husband, a devoted father and grandfather, and a great friend to many. We miss him dearly, but we know he will always be with us anytime we step up to the tee.
