Billerica – Mr. William P. Quagliozzi, of Billerica, formerly of Waltham, died Friday, March 19, 2021 at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington. He was 76.

Bill was born in Waltham on January 12, 1945, a son of the late Joseph and Anna (Aucoin) Quagliozzi, and was a Waltham High graduate. A Billerica resident for more than thirty years he enjoyed following local politics and was a town meeting member for the past few years.

Until his retirement Bill worked as a quality control inspector for Custom Machine in Woburn for ten years and held the same position for thirty years prior with the W.H. Nichols Company in Waltham.

Vacations to York, Maine and strolls along the Marginal Way in Ogunquit were welcome yearly respites. Tuesdays were reserved for golf with his childhood buddies where they shared the triumphs and tragedies of family, work and social life and was something for all to look forward to.

He also loved following other sports including the Red Sox, Patriots and Bruins and had been a longtime coach for the Waltham Little Nippers Baseball League.

Bill leaves his beloved wife of fifty-one years, Diane I. (LeBlanc) Quagliozzi; his children, David W. Quagliozzi of Nashua, New Hampshire, Chris Quagliozzi of N. Andover and Susan A. Quagliozzi of Lowell; his grandchildren, Audrey Quagliozzi and Olivia Mullen; his brother and sister, Joseph Quagliozzi of Harvard and Carole Langley of Waltham and many nieces, nephews and their families.

He was also a brother of the late Marie Squires and Ann Hurst.

Family and friends will honor and remember Bill's life by gathering for calling hours in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte 20), Waltham on Tuesday, March 23rd from 4 to 7 p.m. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning in Saint Mary's Church, 133 School Street, Waltham. Burial will be in Mount Feake Cemetery, Waltham.

To view Bill's Funeral Mass please visit at 10a.m. on Wednesday, March 24th.

Memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105

A note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love and support, give them a virtual hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
