Obituary

William “Bill” Power, Jr.

Passed away peacefully early Sunday morning, March 1, 2020, at the age of 59. Bill was a child of the Lord and has moved on to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Born into a loving family, Bill had a younger sister with whom he would often be mistaken as a twin and two younger brothers.

He was the best friend to his wife Mary of 36 years. He was a scout leader and a soccer coach to his sons Bill and Donovan. For years, Bill enjoyed the role of stay-at-home dad and was an all-around super phantasmagorical guy. He worked in many different industries and learned a variety of skills that made him handy around the house.

Devoted husband, father and friend to all those who were lucky enough to know him, he loved the simple pleasures of food and family. For many years Bill faithfully and lovingly hosted weekly Sunday dinners for his sons, grandmother, mother and father where he would joyfully practice his culinary arts. His big heart and love of his family was displayed in his love of cooking and the wonderful meals he prepared.

Bill had a great fondness for music with an eclectic taste. His passion for music was passed on to his sons who with his influence and support fostered their own musical passion and talent.

Bill had a quick wit and a great sense of humor. He loved laughing with friends and family and was always ready to share a joke. He was a proudly frugal man who very much enjoyed going to garage sales for great deals.
Bill will be greatly missed. He left us too soon.

Bill was the beloved husband of Mary, loving father of William Power III, and Donovan Power, proud grandfather of Apollo Power, dearest son of Eileen Michrina (Ray) and the late William Power, cherished brother of Margaret DiNicola (Robert), Edward Power (Maria) and Joseph Power (Marisa), beloved son-in-law of David W. Nehring and the late Joan Nehring and brother-in-law of David J. Nehring (Rebecca), Robert Nehring (Perry), Kathleen Lusz (Henry), Christopher Nehring (Kristine) and Michael Nehring (Melody), and dear uncle to many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Family will receive friends Thursday, March 5, 2020 from 5-8pm with at 7:30pm Rosary and Scripture Service at A.J. Desmond & Sons (Vasu, Rodgers & Connell Chapel), 32515 Woodward Ave. (btwn 13-14 Mile), (248) 549-0500.
