William Scherer, 49, of Taylor unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at the Atlantic Care Regional Medical Center, Atlantic City, NJ. He was born in Scranton, December 2, 1970 and was the son of Sara Pallien Scherer and the late William P. Scherer.
Billy was a 1989 graduate of Old Forge High School and a graduate of Bloomsburg University. He worked many years for Bank of America and was employed for the last 19 years with Cigna Health Care as a client service executive.
Compassionate, kind hearted, and giving, Billy was the person who could light up a room, be the life of a party, and make friends instantly. He was the first to step up and help anyone who needed it and would often do these gestures of kindness anonymously. Billy was a very comical man whose motto was “there was no line too far or fence too high that he wouldn’t cross” to get a person to laugh. Bill was a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan and adamantly believed that no woman should wear an open toe sandal without their toes painted. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
In addition to his father, William is preceded in by his sister, Deborah Gula, who died July 6, 2013.
In addition to his mother Sara, he is survived by his
brother John and his wife Kerri, of Shavertown and his sister Jacqueline Boylan and her husband Thomas, of Pittston. Also surviving are several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Billy’s family would like to thank Aunt Candi for always being there and his best friends Kori and Jake Leoszewski for being with Billy when his family could not be with him.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to www.gofundme.com In Memory of Billy Scherer for the Scherer Family.
