So many happy memories with our children. I’ll always remember our visits with deep fondness. Our hearts are with you at this difficult time.

Words fail to express the sadness we feel by the loss of Uncle Bill, but at the same time we are happy that he’s no longer uncomfortable and in pain. We remember him as always being so warm, caring, and full of joy. He would do anything for those he loved, and his great attitude, sense of humor, and happiness were contagious. There are so many great memories we have with Uncle Bill during several family reunions, the donkey that was delivered to our house when we were young, the David Letterman cameraman interviews one year when he came to visit, etc. Please know that we wish we could be there with the Asparro family, and we are praying for your peace and comfort during this difficult time. We love you - Mike, Brooke, Savannah, & Alex

Bill impressed me as a man who smiled easily and worked hard to fulfill his many lifelong dreams. His love of family, home and garden were top of list. Baseball dreams, cool cars, boats, good food and family entertainment followed close behind. His dreams were contagious and we were all lucky to be a part of them. He did it his way...and it was always with style.

Asparro family, you have my deepest condolences and prayers. Bill was such an amazing man. He was always smiling and had so much love for everyone. From the moment I met you all, I instantly felt like I had gained an extended family. Bill had such a warm and kind spirit. You could always feel his joy. I am honored to have known him. He leaves behind a wonderful and loving family that is his legacy. Thank you for the love and memories, Bill.

We are so saddened by the passing of Uncle Bill. There have been so many great memories of vacations and holidays spent with your family and how Uncle Bill always brought love and laughter to those occasions. From the DisneyWorld RV trip to the Bear Mountain Christmas tradition to Easters at Captain Bills and so many other great moments of fun, joy, love, and family, we will forever treasure the memory of Uncle Bill.

With Sympathy and Love,

"Batter up" Bill, we had great times playing baseball in and after high school! You pitched, and man could you pitch! I played 3rd base and how we would make jokes between us when I would return the ball back to you from 3rd base. I watched you start your glass business, and man did it grow. But I know it grew and was successful because of your personality and hard work.
You will be in everyone's heart forever.

So many Wonderful memories from when we were kids -And we went cross country with Mom and Dad when we youngsters living in Queens - to point lookout beach house in the summer - all the great memories at the beach! As we got older in our teens, your baseball and cars then getting married and fun times with you and Dee. Then you and your beautiful children so glad we all hung out and then the wonderful trip to Italy and even right up to the pandemic - it has been a beautiful journey! You will always be in my heart! I love you, Bill, my big brother-always & forever! Love, Linda

Rest In Peace, Bill. High school was a very long time ago but you are not forgotten. You were one of the nicest guys in our class. You will be missed. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

A lifetime of shared memories, each made “memorable” when customized by the injection of Bill. Double-dating in fast cars; Bear Mountain Christmas caroling, skating and dancing; Captain Bill’ s Easter competition for craziest centerpiece; and so many shared family holidays topped off with LCR & hilarious grab bag insanity! One of our favorite memories is a gondola ride in Las Vegas. Our Gondolier was renowned for being able to sing any requested Italian song. OF COURSE, Bill had secretly asked another gondolier for the name of a song that he was sure our gondolier wouldn’t know. As we rode on our gondola, Bill tearfully told our gondolier about an Italian song his mother sang to him as a child and how he would love to hear it once more. “Of course, of course no problem, I know every Italian song”, said our gondolier confidently. Bill gave him the name of the song . We then watched a look of pompous confidence fade to shock and dismay....and we were crying! You just had to love him!💕

Aunt Dee, Tracy, Lyndsay, Adam & entire Asparro family,

I am so very sorry for your loss, and I wish I could be there in person to offer my condolences. I love you all so much.

When I think of Uncle Bill, I think of that smiling face with a joke ready, a dance move to lay down, and tight hug no matter how old were. He loved his family fiercely which is why I have only wonderful, happy memories of any time I spent with all of you. He is truly missed, but the good memories will always remain close to my heart.

Much Love,

Love and condolences from Khoshal, Finn, Violet & Jackson
