WILLIAM A. BURRI
Latham-William Albert Burri (Bill), entered into eternal life on Tuesday September 29, 2020 at his home. Bill was born in Queens County, NY March 28, 1932. He grew up in Bellmore, NY, graduating from Mepham High School where he had played on the football team.
He then went on to earn an Associate's Degree in Engineering at Farmingdale State College. Although, he's always been more of an accountant at heart - he just loved numbers.
He served in the US Army from 1955 to 1957 and received an Honorable Discharge.
Bill was a life-long employee of General Electric in Schenectady, NY, retiring in his late 50's.
He and his wife, Jo-Ann met 39 years ago and have been married for 37 years. They enjoyed bowling and playing tennis together until Bill was sidelined by a back injury. They also traveled frequently to vacation and visit their grandchildren. Bill was an avid computer and internet user, and a loyal tennis and NFL Raiders fan.
Bill was predeceased by his father, William Paul Burri, his mother, Violet Powell Burri, his brother
Bruce Burri and his niece Felicia Kinne.
