William May Obituary

William James May, 79 of Liverpool, passed away January 10, 2024. He was born in Syracuse, NY. Bill retired from S.M. Flickinger Co where he was a union steward and a member of Teamster’s Local 317.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years Rose (Bombardo) May, his son Brian May, his daughter Robin (John) Beel, and his siblings: Barbara Smith, Sherri (Charles) Moe, Cindy Baker, and Robert (Susan) May. Bill is also survived by his grandchildren: Mary Kate, Shannon, Payton, and Trevor Beel.
