    Dear Michelle and Marcia, I’m so sorry to hear about Will’s passing. We were neighbors for many years and fondly remember both your mom and dad attending our annual Christmas parties. I still have many of the beautiful wood carvings he used to make for us each Christmas and think of him every time I decorate for the holidays. May your memories help you through this difficult time.

    I remember Mr. Scire when he was a custodian at the Veterans Memorial School. I was a 6th grader in 1960 and he was the nicest man. I can remember him teasing me (don’t know what about) but evidently I liked it. So sorry to hear of his passing.

  3. RIP Uncle Willie

    I already miss you

    Gonna miss bringing u coffee and jelly donut

    My sympathies to the Scire family. Bill was a fine gentleman who always had a welcoming and friendly smile at Veterans school or on the streets. RIP Bill.

  5. For over 35 years, I referred to him as “ Mister Willy “ ! I was honored to know such a “ Good man “! He truly loved his wife ,family ,home and garden ! I will always remember how happy he made me feel when we got together ! A beautiful thing happens when grown men can say “ I love you “to each other . He was like a second father to me ! Rest In Peace my old friend ! We will meet again for many more laughs…..hopefully, not too soon !!!

  9. To Bill’s family I am very saddened to hear of your loss. Mr. Shire was the custodian at my elementary school when I first got to know him and later he was Bill when I worked with him as a colleague in the school department. When I was a kid he gave me a signed Red Sox baseball from his connections with the Red Sox and I still remember him on his moped as he mad his way back and forth to work. I was so very lucky to have know him and for his friendship for so many years. Again my condolences to his family at this most difficult time
