William “Bill” Arlie Maestra, 80, of Westmont, took the road less traveled onto his next journey on February 2, 2023. Born on September 14, 1942 in Buffalo NY, son of the late Aurelio and Cesira (Cisilin) Maestra.
Preceded in death by parents and sister Joan (Miller).
Survived by wife of 53 years, Mary Ellen (Jankowski), sisters Betsy (Sanford) and Corinne (Catalano), daughter Amy (Grenell) and son-in-law Tom, son Marc and daughter-in-law Susan (Clark); grandchildren Sophia, Patrick, and Jonathon.
Bill was a veteran of the United States Air Force where he served in Okinawa, Japan. He retired as a civil engineer from Bethlehem Steel.
He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He loved jazz, wine, and good food. Bill loved to debate, although he never argued with fools. But mostly he loved sharing his wisdom and time with his three grandchildren. Godspeed Nonno.
