William DeStefano's Memorial Fund

As many of you already know, Bill was an incredibly generous person who would do anything he could for his friends and family.  When times were good he would often give more than he could afford and figure out how to pay for it later. He experienced many ups and downs in his life, but lately the downs were winning. Life's challenges got the best of him and he wound up back home in Caldwell just in time to help care for his ailing mother, which he did for the last 7 years until she passed last February. The decision was made to sell the only place he truly could ever call home and try to start over elsewhere. He had to use that money for previous financial obligations and was forced to start with very little. His health and the cost of living were quickly eating away at all that he had.  Depression set in and his anxiety got the best of him. Bill was always too proud to share his difficulties with most people so he internalized his struggle to the end.  Please show him that we all care by donating to his end of life expenses as there are many. He would personally thank each of us if he could.

He will be greatly missed!
