William (Bill) Ernest Tiano, Jr., 64, of Clarksburg passed away suddenly on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at his home.
He was born in Clarksburg on January 15, 1955, a loving son of the late William E. Tiano and Barbara Tomaro Tiano who survives in Clarksburg.
In addition to his mother, he is also survived by his husband, Thomas G. Day, and also his former wife, Alana Tighe Pazdric and her husband Steve.
Also surviving are one daughter, Natalie Oliverio and her husband Damon of Clarksburg; two sons, William E. Tiano, III of Las Vegas, NV, and Tyler Vincent Tiano and his fiancé Shannon Miller of Clarksburg; two step-children, Erin R. Day of Mt. Clare and Kelsi L. Day of Fall River, MA; three grandchildren, Isabella Mia Oliverio, Emmett Hayes and Brinley Mae Keough; one sister, Mary Beth Barberio and her husband John; one brother, Robert J. Tiano and his wife Lisa of Clarksburg; and several nieces and nephews, along with a large extended family.
Bill was the retired Head Grocer for Kroger with over 40 years of service. He was a member of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union and the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, where he was a joyful addition to the choir.
Easily recognized by his smile, Bill didn’t know a stranger. To know him was to love him – as his infectious personality spread joy to anyone fortunate enough to spend time with him.
In 2008, Bill was diagnosed with Guillain Barré Syndrome, facing a near death experience, and more than a year of rehabilitation. He fought this disease with unwavering courage and strength, surviving more than 11 years with just a few modifications. His family and friends are so grateful for the time they had on earth with him.
Beloved by his children and grandchildren, “Pap,” was the go-to source for a fun treat, or a new adventure. He always put the needs of his family before his own. He was a devout Catholic and relied on his faith to see him through many years of both hardships and joys.
An expert gardener, Bill beautified gardens of those who needed him most – teaching patience and love along the way. Always in the kitchen, Bill regularly cooked exceptional Italian food for his family, whom he loved so much.
There was nothing Bill couldn’t fix or finagle with a twisty-tie or a handy piece of wire; to make work again or leave better than when he found it.
Bill will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a loving father, devoted husband, loyal brother, trusted friend, and good son.
