William “Bill” “Billy” Tripodi, of Ohara Twp. on November 20, 2017, went to meet his Creator. He was the beloved and only son of the late Larry A. and Pearl M. Tripodi. He is survived by his dog, Buddy; his Godmother, Dorothy Pisano; aunt, Frances Bentlejewski; Godchildren, Lori Schneider (Helwick), Gina Duncan (Helwick); and numerous cousins. Bill was a very devout Catholic. He attended St. Fidelis in his younger years, where he studied to be a priest. Even though life did not lead him down that path, his faith in God stayed steadfast and he was involved in his church for years. He was a “son” of the American Legion at Post 106 in Sharpsburg. He also had his Fourth Degree in the Knights of Columbus. He may have been an only child however with the love of his many cousins, he was never left to feel alone. His cousins, Amy and Paul Faas' children, Jenna Schmidt (Faas) and Regis Faas, were more like his niece and nephew. His memory will be forever in their hearts. Please celebrate with the family as God welcomes William Home. Friends received at WORRELL FUNERAL HOME, INC., Friday Noon to 9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Joseph Church at 10 a.m. on Saturday followed by burial in St. Stanislaus Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to Amy Faas and they will be placed in his estate.
