William Ralph Amaroli
Mar. 13, 1925 – Feb. 26, 2014
Passed away peacefully with family by his side, Bill enjoyed a truly wonderful life.
Born in San Francisco, Bill attended Galileo High and served in the Navy in World War II on the USS Anthony Destroyer. Bill married his forever love Doris (Honey Pot) in 1950 and their beautiful journey lasted nearly 64 years.
Bill leaves behind his wife Doris, 3 children and 6 grandchildren, daughter Jeanne Patterson (Mike, Catherine, Joe, Chrissy), son William, son and daughter-in-law Mike and Joni (Nic and Kevin).
After a successful career in Engineering sales, Bill retired at 58 and shared time between homes in Millbrae and Napa. Both avid golfers, Bill and Doris cherished the friendships they made as members of Silverado Country Club. Some of Bill's happiest memories were family gatherings at Silverado, traveling, and doing for others, such as fixing anything that was broken. Bill was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. We were very lucky to have him in our lives. As Bill used to say he played a perfect round in the scorecard of life.
A private family service has been held. The family wishes to thank the staff at Mills Estate Villa for their compassionate care.
