William A. "Hose-1" Strumpfler, of Enfield, entered into eternal rest at the age of 84, on Monday, March 17, 2014, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born June 9, 1929, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the son of the late Albert L. and Anna (Torma) Strumpfler, and had resided in Enfield for over 50 years. William served his country proudly with the U.S. Army. A self-employed businessman, he owned and operated Hose and Rubber Co. for many years. He was very active in scouting and was an assistant scout master with Troop 888. In his leisure time he enjoyed being outdoors, fishing, gardening, his dogs, and feeding and watching birds. But his greatest joy was spending time with his family. He was also an avid N.Y. Giants fan.

William is survived by his five beloved children and their families including nine grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; his "baby" sister, Lyn Tyler, and brother-in-law, Al Tyler; his sister-in-law, Dolores Strumpfler; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at the convenience of his family.
