William “Bill” Alcavage passed suddenly on August 2, 2020, age 64 years.

Bill is survived by his longtime girlfriend Donna Buss; children: William “Billy” J. Alcavage; son Eric M. Alcavage (Dana L. Alcavage), and daughter Brittany L. Alcavage, whom he shared with Diane L. Alcavage(nee More’); his step-daughter Kathryn M. Horner and husband Timothy J. Horner; his “adopted” son Christopher J. Thomas; his brothers Steve, Bob and wife Rita, John and sister Cyndy. Bill was Pop-Pop to Austin M. Horner and Joanna M. Rossi. He was predeceased by his parents William S. and Mary E. Alcavage (nee Ballinghoff).

Bill shared many passions with his loved ones. He inherited his love of trains from his father and shared it with his siblings. Bill loved spending time outdoors (which coined him the nickname “Nature Boy”), especially with his family. Whether sitting around a fire in the backyard or going on family camping trips, he always felt at home enjoying nature. Bill shared photography, especially photographing sunsets, with Brittany. He dedicated much of his life to the Boy Scouts and shared it with Billy, Eric and Pher. Bill and Donna shared many passions, but most importantly—spending time with all of their children and grandchildren.

Visitation will be Monday, August 10, 2020 from 10:00-11:00 am at St. Joan of Arc Church, 3107 Alabama Road, Camden, NJ 08104, with mass to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the family.

Where would we all be today, were it not for our wonderful memories! When you were 6 years old, you were our ring bearer in our wedding, such great memories!! You are such a fantastic guy! And what a wonderful dad and Pop Pop you were! You loved many of the things that I love such as camping, scouting, fishing, exploring, family get togethers and many other things. I enjoyed having conversations and laughing with you. God must have wanted another angel!! RIP, Billy, you will definitely be missed!! Love always <3 Uncle Fred & Aunt Barb

Bill, you were the best brother anyone could ask for. The closeness we shared was like no other. As kids, we were inseparable, Through the years, not much of that has changed. As we grew older we were always there for each other. You were always the jokester of the family. I will miss you more than you’ll ever know. Until we meet again, I will carry you with me in my heart. I love you Bill.

My heart aches for all those who were blessed to be apart of Bill’s life. When the sudden tragic loss of a good man leaves us for heaven I often ask why? It doesn’t seem fair. I have only had the pleasure of meeting Bill a few times. Every encounter was warm, welcoming and there was always laughter. I could see and feel the love he had for his family. When ever Mr. Alcavage’s name is mentioned in the future , the words genuine, kind and good will be the feelings I get when thinking of the man I knew. Praying for the family to have the strength through this most difficult time

Cousin Billy, I can't express how hard this is for me. I loved you and loved the memories we shared. I think Christmases were the best and i can even picture you opening up some presents right before your mom made some delicious meals. Every time I'm at a picnic, barbecue, or pool party I'll think of you fondly and smile. Your sense of adventure, quick wit, and calm demeanor helped define you in my eyes. I love the experiences and joy you brought to my life and will cherish the memories and celebrate the light you left everyone. Kiss my Aunt Mary and Uncle Bill for me, will ya?

Uncle Bill was such a wonderful man! We didn't see each other much but when we did get together he was always a pleasure to be around. We would always have great conversations while enjoying a couple cold ones. One of my favorite memories was when we all went to the beach house together at Wildwood Crest. Always a good time. RIP Uncle Bill 🙏 Will never forget you and you will be missed! Love always! ❤

My daddy. My hero. I’m so sorry this happened to you. You were THE BEST dad ever. I’m not really sure how we’re suppose to go on without you but... we will. We miss you more than we can even explain and love you more than anything. We will celebrate your life. And don’t worry, we’ll carry on the tradition of telling your corny dad jokes. Keep sending the signs, they’re the best ❤️
