William Piervincenzi

William A. Piervincenzi, 74, died Saturday, March 18, 2017, at his home in Andes.

He was born October 14, 1942 in Brooklyn, NY, the son of Attilio and Florence Piervincenzi.

Bill was a man of diverse interests, and he explored all of them with great passion. After teaching Biology at Nassau Community College on Long Island for 25 years, he and his wife, Edna (Eddie), began to reside full time in Andes. They had built their home by hand over many years with the help of family, friends, and many members of the community. Bill was constantly exploring. He enjoyed cooking, nature, music, and being involved with community activities. Bill’s energy and zest for life were both kinetic and inspiring. He was well loved and will be missed by all.

He is survived by his wife Edna Piervincenzi, his 3 siblings Barbara Rubin, Ronald Piervincenzi, and Susan Piervin, 4 adult children, Gina Torre, William Piervincenzi, Andrea Pollack, and Adam Piervincenzi, and 5 grandchildren.

The family has opted to forego calling hours and services, and will instead plan an intimate celebration of his life in late spring or summer. Contributions in lieu of flowers may be made to the Andes Fire Department EMT Division or the charity of your choice. Arrangements by the Hynes Funeral Home, Margaretville.
