William "Bill" Slater, 86, of East Haven passed away June 19 at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He was born Nov. 21, 1933, in New Haven to George and Mildred Slater.
He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Doris (Mawer) Slater; two devoted daughters, Tracy Fucci of East Haven and Kati Loda (Greg) of East Haven; along with three grandchildren he loved and adored, Donald "DJ" Fucci, Talia Loda, and Sammy Loda. William was the last survivor of his immediate family; he was preceded in death by his parents and siblings George Slater, Gloria Collier, and Robert Slater.
William was a man of simple means; he loved spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed watching football and baseball (New York Yankees), but his favorite sport was horse racing. He was often referred to by his family and friends as Bill, Mr. Bill, Dollar Bill, and Willy. Being a family man, he took great pride in his grandkids and loved watching them play sports. Bill enjoyed music, especially The Beatles, Roger Whittaker, and The Dixie Land Jazz Band. He was a US Marine Corps veteran and a retired employee with 30 years of service at the Railroad.
The family received friends on June 24 until the time of service in the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home (Clancy Funeral Home), 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven. Burial was private.
