West Roxbury, MA - William Leroy Brenner left this earthly world Sunday, November 25, 2018, at the VA MICU in West Roxbury, MA, much to the surprise of us all, with unexpected lung complications.
Bill was born May 8, 1941 in North Lewisburg, Ohio. He grew up as a farm boy along with his brothers, Norm and Larry. In high school, he played football and basketball. He LOVED his Ohio State Buckeyes!!
Bill was an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Air Force where he served as an Airman 1st Class. He was very proud of his country. Bill's chosen career path was as a salesman, whether it was Motorola or cars. He was a smooth talker who was known by people wherever we went.
Bill moved to Tewksbury, MA in 2017 after his wife died. He was very proud of his grandson, Chase and loved seeing him grow up. He loved crossword puzzles and truly enjoyed Bingo, Poker and his Card Ladies at Heatherwood!
