William V. Bird

AGE: 55 • Cliffwood/Aberdeen Township

(Willie Bird)

William Bird, 55, of Cliffwood/Aberdeen Township, passed away, Tuesday, November 1, 2016, at his home. He was born in Jersey City, but resided in Cliffwood for 54 years.

He was a graduate of Matawan Regional High School and retired this year, after 32 years as a construction laborer, with the Heavy and General Laborers Local #472, Newark.

His true passion was being outdoors and being on the water. He loved and enjoyed his boat, the Laura B, and spent endless hours fishing and crabbing. He also took great pride in his home and loved working around the house.

William was predeceased by his mom and dad, Wilbur and Helen (Ciarkowski) Bird. He is survived by his loving sister, Laura Bird and her husband, Thomas Kackle; his cherished girlfriend, Viola Harding and her son, Frederick Osmond "Willie's Buddy;" his dear Aunt Eleanor and her family; his caring and devoted cousins, Wayne and Donna Jablonski and Richard Meagher; his special and forever friend, Kim Olsen; and his lifelong friends, who were always there for him along his journey.

He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by his family and all that had the pleasure of calling him their friend.

At the direction of the family, William will be privately cremated. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Day Funeral Home, 361 Maple Place, Keyport, NJ, was entrusted with the cremation arrangements. You may post a condolence to the family online at the funeral home website www.dayfuneralhome.com.
