ROCHESTER, NY- April 25, 2023 at the age of 76 Bill entered into peaceful rest in his home surrounded by those he loved. Bill is predeceased by his parents Anna and Herbert Mondore. Survived by his sister, Linda (Ron) Bauer; daughter Yvette (Terry) Tehan; granddaughter Nicole Ilardo, Kayla (Danny) Kaplan, Megan (Brian) Sciera and three beautiful great-grandchildren.
Bill retired from the NYPD after 30+years of service and served his last days in the Arson and Bomb Squad Special investigation unit receiving the second highest achievement of gold shield. One of his last calls to duty was in response to the tragic event of 9/11. He was one of many courageous and dedicated responders that sacrificed many sleepless days and nights in dangerous conditions for the service of other to uphold the oath he took. Every year he would faithfully watch the tribute to those that lost their lives and always remind those “to never forget” with a wish that he could have found “just one survivor”. After living in the downstate area for all of his adult life he retired and moved to Rochester to be close to his family. The love and connections he made will forever be held close in all our hearts and will never be forgotten.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, June 2nd 2023 from 4-8 pm at Shadow Lake Golf Club, 1850 Five Mile Line Rd, Penfield, NY 14526. In lieu of flowers please donate to HEART 9/11 at https://www.heart911.org/support .
My deepest condolences. I will miss chatting with him. I will forever hold the memories of good times spent together. I know for sure his friend Barney greeted him at the gates of heaven. Wishing you all comfort in your memories. I will never forget him. I wish I was able to come and celebrate his life. I will certainly be there in spirit.
