Ok, the flowers are set: we (the grandchildren) sent a spray of Fuji Mums and Red Roses with a Blue ribbon that says "Grandpa." There will also be a small American flag attached and is signed with our names. Military = Red, White, & Blue, right? :)

Most of you know me and know what my last name is. However, I wasn't completely comfortable putting it out there for the world to see. I mean, if you're going to stalk me, you should at least have to do a little work for it. :p

Veteran William C. ********, of Quincy passed away at Quincy Medical Center on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at age 80.

Bill was born in Weymouth where he was raised and educated. He lived in Quincy for the past 40 years. (Actually, he wasn't born in Weymouth, he was born in Quincy - I know this because of the family tree Ellin is creating.)

He served in the US Navy for 20 years with service in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. After his retirement from the Navy, Bill worked as a letter carrier for the US Post Office. He then worked as a supervisor in the tint department of the California Paint Company for 40 years.

He was a member of the George F. Bryant VFW Post in Quincy.

Bill was the beloved husband of the late Carolyn H. (Hale) ******** and is the father of Dennis Paul ******** of Melrose and Bruce Alan ******** of Abington. He is also survived by his niece Marilyn D'Angelo of Quincy, his dear friend Grace Dunn of Billerica and 3 grandchildren. (It's acually *4* grandchildren - I've called to have that corrected....)

A funeral service will be held in the Dennis Sweeney Funeral Home 74 Elm St. Quincy Center on Monday, February 26 at 10:00am. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend. Visiting hours are on Sunday from 2:00 to 4:00pm.

Burial with military honors will be at Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett.

Donations in Bill's memory may be made to the Old Colony Hospice 1 Credit Union Way, Randolph, MA 02368.
