WILLIAM (BILLY) MC CREIGHT September 8, 1959 – March 9, 2021 Wurtsboro, New York William McCreight passed away on March 9, 2021 at his home in Wurtsboro. He was born on September 8, 1959 at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan. He was predeceased by his father, William McCreight, his maternal grandparents, Antonio and Maria Caputo and his Aunt and Uncle, Nancy and Daniel Cavaluzzi. Ten years ago he lost the love of his life of twenty years, Nancy Lavelle, who passed tragically and from which he never fully recovered. He is survived by his beloved mother, Vinnie McCreight, an Orange County resident for 30 years and formerly of the Bronx; his beloved sister Dotty Tiernan and brother-in-law, Scott Tiernan, Orange County residents for 32 years and formerly of the Bronx; his nephew Eric Tiernan, wife Suzanne, grand-niece Marissa and grand-nephew Jaxon; niece Danielle Dillon, husband Matthew and grand-nephews Dominic and Brandon; niece Jessica Tiernan; close cousins Toni, Chris and Kaiya Dunne and Daniel and Joseph Cavaluzzi and many dear friends including Kay Aughavin and Aidan Moloney. Billy was a self-employed jack of all trades proficient in carpentry, electrical, plumbing, roofing as well as being an accomplished car mechanic. His photo was prominently featured in a Times Herald Record article praising his roofing skills as a volunteer worker for Habitat for Humanity. Billy was a “collector” of numerous items and countless hand and power tools. He was an animal lover his entire life and spent his last years with his canine companion, Red and his macau, Nicky. He was very family oriented and happiest spending time with the loved ones in his life. He was loved dearly and there are no words to express the void he has left and how deeply he will be missed. In recognition of the pandemic, private Catholic graveside services will be held on March 19, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary’s Cemetery, 2 Fr. Tierney Circle, Washingtonville, New York. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Billy’s name can be made to Pets Alive, a no kill shelter, located at 363 Derby Road, Middletown, New York 10940 (845-386-9738).

Billy,
I remember all those years ago when you came to the house to ask permission to date my Mom. It took a little while for me to warm up to the idea but I grew to love you. You became my family and your family became my family. So many wonderful, crazy and silly memories. I know how much you missed Mom when she passed. I pray you are resting peacefully with your beloved again.
To the family,
I love you all so much. I am so very sorry. You are in my thoughts and prayers
Celina

dear, Billy
thank you for always being there for me and giving me good advice, and taking me to the golden gloves, because after I got beat up I probably wouldn't have been able to catch the bus. I will miss you
