William Francis Etts

AGE: 89 • Jackson

William Francis Etts, age 89, of Jackson, NJ, passed away peacefully at home with his wife of 64 years by his side on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. He was born on October 10, 1927 in Brooklyn, NY and lived in Syosset, NY before moving to Jackson, NJ. William is survived by his wife, Grace Elizabeth (Sacer), his children, Gregory, Jennifer and Dennis Patelis, Christine and David Zettle, Douglas Sr. and Susan, his six grandchildren, Steven, William, Alexis, Douglas Jr., Arden and Shannon and his two sisters Jackie Jacobs and MaryAnn Todd.

William was a generous man who loved not only his children and grandchildren, but his nieces and nephews with an abundance of joy and happiness. He was a kind gentleman that encouraged intellectual conversation and always enjoyed a challenging debate. William enjoyed his sports and declared there were only two types of guys, good guys and bad guys and the only good guys were the NY Giants and NY Rangers.

William would be happiest being remembered by all who knew him as a man who loved his family. The family will be holding a Celebration of Life in the near future. In Lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Visiting Nurses Association Health Group Hospice, C/O Foundation Office, 176 Riverside Avenue, Red Bank, New Jersey 07701.
