OBITUARY

William "Bill" Maura

December 27, 1951April 13, 2019

It is with a heavy heart and profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and best friend William "Bill" Maura on Aprill 13th, 2019. Bill was born Dec. 27,1951 to Francis Maura Sr. and Elizabeth (Catanzaro) Maura. He is survived by his wife, Faith Maura of Plainville, his son, John Walsh of Bristol, his brother, Frances (Jimmy) Maura of Rocky Hill, his beloved dog Mack and the cats. Bill grew up in Wethersfield, CT and graduated high school from Wethersfield High School, class of 1969. He retired from LIMRA in Windsor in January of 2018. His love for people and passion for technology carried him proudly through his 47 year career from the mail room to vice president. Outside of family and work, his biggest passions were The Beatles, Volkswagens and the Red Sox! Bill's fondest moments were picnics or dinners out with family and close friends, Red Sox games with his wife or son and family road trips often camping in one of his beloved VWs, either his Westfalia or Herbbie, his beloved 1967 sunroof Beetle always blasting The Beatles or the live Sox games on 1080AM radio. Everyone who's ever met Bill has been touched by his ability to listen, his unique ability to think outside of the box troubleshooting anything and pure compassion that could help heal anything anyone was going through. Calling hours will be held on Thursday, April 18th from 2-4:30pm at 444 Farmington Ave, New Britain, CT at the New Britain Memorial-Sagarino Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Bill's name to Protectors of Animals, 144 Main St. Unit O, East Hartford, CT. 06118

Faith, John and family, I would like to wish you all, my sincerest condolences on the loss of an Amazing Man. Billy was and always will be "Special"! He was always there for anyone, anywhere, anytime. His kindness, love and support to all, was boundless.

I first met Billy on Sigourney St. in Hartford, Ct., June 1976, as Joe Krukas brought me around the building introducing me to everyone at L.I.M.R.A. We came upon Billy outside the old computer room and before Joe had a chance to introduce me to him, Billy starts to tell us a joke, and before I knew it, I was L.M.A.O... He smiled at me as only Billy could do and I felt completely at ease...

He will be missed by me and by many others. I hope one day our paths cross again... You are my shining star!

Faye & John, our sincere condolences on the passing of Bill; he was a great boss, and a greater man. When I told Bill our daughter Ting Ting was learning about and liking the Beatles in school, Bill sent her 2 Beatles CD's. I know these CD's will be appreciated more as time goes by, and we will all think of Billy every time we hear the Beatles.

My sincere condolences to the Maura Family, Bill and I were friends from a very early start. Having gone to Charles Wright school. Our most memorable time in life was playing Little League for the VFW. His Dad and Mr. Ricardo were our coaches. We won the pennant in either 65 or 66. What a team we had. Later in life Bill was able to get me a job working at LIMRA. Bill was the most likeable person I ever knew. We had the greatest crew when we were younger. He will be missed by everyone. Respectfully David Wolanin.
