He leaves his sister Cleta and husband Ron Novello, sister Anna and husband Peter Calitri, brother Bobby and wife Debbie Crisafi all of Beverly, and brother Johnny and wife Pam Crisafi of Salisbury. He also leaves four grandchildren: Michelle Fraser (married to Dan Fraser), Sean, Michael, and Angela Haith; along with two great-grandchildren: Finn and Max Fraser.

Billy had a long and successful career with Webster Industries, a Peabody plastics company, for 44 years from pushing a broom to Vice President of Distribution/International travel. After retirement, he enjoyed many happy years as a working board member at the Beverly Italian Community Center. Some of those fellows even made it to Maine for a lobster extravaganza ICC style. There were many fun times spent on the Gulf Coast in Mississippi and the coast of Maine over the years with his daughter’s family. Disneyworld has nothing on Grampy.
As we all that know him….know that he loved great food and his scotch……so we send him off with a toast, “Make me a scotch, 3 fingers” and a wise-cracking joke.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
