Please share a memory of William to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
William "Bill" Raymond Coughlin Jr., 86, entered heaven Thursday May 5, 2022. Predeceased by his parents Catherine and William, sister Pat, brothers Tim and Jack and many beloved friends, Bill is survived by his wife Millie, daughters Colleen (John), Kim (Patrick), Chris (Brian), grandchildren Seth Ian, Claire, Maeve, and Grace, brothers Denny (Marion), Mart (Susie), and Richard, and sisters-in-law Linda (Barbara) , Barbara Coughlin , Pat Coughlin and brother-in-law Keith (Nancy), and a large extended family. A lifelong resident of Binghamton, proud Air Force veteran, retired electrical engineer, handyman, avid camper and Buick owner, enthusiastic trailer salesman, Oktoberfest organizer, dedicated JayCee leader, Pee Wee Football coach, Notre Dame and Yankees fan, devout Catholic and dedicated member of St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Bill loved his life and his community. Throughout many health ordeals these past few years, he was a warrior to the end, facing all challenges with a positive attitude, humility, and grace. Born during the Great Depression, Bill grew up on Lawton Avenue with his six siblings, parents and grandmother in a 3 bedroom, 1 bath home. It was here and visits to the farm on Bunn Hill where Bill's lifelong playful spirit and general sense of mischief were nurtured. Supported by his family, neighbors, friends, and church who bore witness to his struggles, Bill taught us all through his perseverance, strength, endurance and affable spirit. He will be missed. A funeral mass will be offered at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Highland Avenue, Binghamton, Thursday May 12, 2022 at 11a.m. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City.
