Legere, William R. ROTTERDAM Favorite Brother Bill lost his long fight with lung issues Saturday morning, January 13, 2013. Thankfully, he is no longer struggling with this incurable condition; sadly he is gone. Born in Schenectady, Bill was the son of the late Charles and Daisy (Hoyt) Legere and a graduate of Schalmont Schools. The head of maintenance and grounds for the Bond Funeral Home for over 39 years, Bill retired in 2010. An avid baseball card collector, Yankee fan and cat lover, Bill will be missed by all. For those of you who were fortunate enough to have known Bill, you can fill in the rest, but for those of you who didn't: Bill was a one of a kind who was the most good natured, easy going guy, who was blessed with an envious and infectious sense of innocence and wonderment about the world around him. Even though he was learning disabled, he would have a conversation about world events, as well as discuss the process of copying his cassette and LP's to the computer and then to a CD. You could not help but smile at his sense of humor and qualified musings. It was his trusting, accepting gentle nature that made him special. Like mom, he accepted everyone and I never heard him utter a bad word about anyone. Ever. REPEAT: Ever.. Years ago I started lobbying for, and won, the Title of "Favorite Brother" Come to find out, he had three favorite brothers. See you later Bill. He is survived by his brothers, Charles Legere (Beatrice) of Selkirk, Michael Legere (Amy) of Flagstaff and Raymond Legere (Renee) of Glenville; his nieces and nephews, Samantha and Alexandra Legere of Glenville, Jacqueline Legere of Massachusetts, Kristin Legere of Delmar, Zachary Wegner and Ryan Wegner both of Arizona. A gathering will be held on Friday morning January 18 at the Bond Funeral Home, Broadway & Guilderland Ave, Schenectady, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, followed at noon by a memorial service. Interment will follow at Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made in Bill memory to the Animal Protective Foundation of Schenectady County, 53 Maple Ave, Scotia, NY 12302. Online condolences at bondfuneralhome.com
