Chili, NY: Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at age 68.
Predeceased by his parents, Robert and Margaret Pepper.
Survived by his sisters, Valerie Towner, Caroline Pepper (Eugene Ritter,) Barbara Sullivan (Daniel,) several nieces, missing nephew Brian Sullivan, great nieces, great nephew, Uncle Fred Piker, and several cousins.
Bill grew up in Chili, NY where he graduated from Churchville-Chili School. He went on to get his BS degree in Business Administration from Rochester Institute of Technology. From there he went on to a career in the printing business and retired from Canfield and Tack in 2010.
Bill had many interests, including woodworking, fishing, sailing, motorboating, gardening, photography, saltwater aquariums, Tai Chi, cooking, grilling and baking. (He made a mess, but it was always delicious!) He was very kind and a good listener. His favorite place to be was at Draper Lake in Canada where he spent all of his summers for most of his life.
We’d like to thank Rochester Presbyterian Home for their loving and compassionate care for Bill for almost 3 years and to Edna Tina Wilson Living Center for the last part of his life.
Bill’s Celebration of Life will be on Saturday, June 25, 2022 from 10 am-1pm at Rochester Cremation, 1118 Long Pond Road, Rochester, NY 14626.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to:

We are so very sorry for your loss. Sending heartfelt thoughts and prayers to you all. Love, hugs and peace…❤️
So very sorry for the loss of your brother and our coworker and friend. Bill was the most pleasant person to work with and was missed since the day he left Canfield.
Sending prayers of peace to you and your family.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Bill & I were often the last ones left in the office at the end of a day at Canfield. I valued his knowledge and dedication to our work and I couldn’t ask for a nicer more genuine person to sit next to and work with. He was terribly missed when he left C&T………however, I could always look forward to his witty Christmas cards! Sending thoughts and prayers to his family.
Bills Celebration of life will be Saturday June 25th from 10:00 to 1:00 pm with a service for Bill from 11:00 to 12:00 at Rochester Cremation , visiting will be from 10 to 11 and from 12 to 1 .
I loved working with Bill! Even when I was jealous of his delicious smelling pizza he would heat up for lunch everyday. He was a kind, generous man who you could always count on if you needed anything. RIP Bill!
I am so sorry for your loss!
I worked with Bill for many years at Canfield & Tack and, as others have said previously, found Bill to be wonderful to work with. He was thoughtful, professional and very generous with his time. Despite the seemingly endless stream of “urgent” estimate requests, Bill always had time to answer one more question or to research one more issue. Bill truly exemplified the culture of customer service that was the hallmark of C&T in those times.
We all lost a friend. Please accept my sincere condolences.
