William Cucchiarella, 81, of Yonkers, NY unexpectedly left our world with his angels on January 17th, 2021. Willie will be remembered as a loving husband of 59 years to his wife, Linda (Martucci) Cucchiarella, and devoted father to their son, William.

Willie was born in the Bronx on December 31st, 1939, to the late Margaret-Rose and John Cucchiarella. He grew up on College Avenue in the South Bronx, and worked as a bricklayer for many years. He further advanced his career by attending night classes in blue- print reading and construction, and estimating, which enabled him to become a foreman, then a masonry superintendent, a position that he held for over 20 years until he retired. He was well-known in the Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Local 1- NY union for his management and completion of many challenging projects throughout the NYC area.

Willie’s presence will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. He and Linda, enjoyed spending time with their son, as well as their large extended family and many friends. He will be remembered as often being the life of the party, joking around, telling stories, dancing, initiating lively discussions, or sharing his words of wisdom. He was passionate about sports- especially the Yankees, politics, and writing his memoir. Some of his interests included bowling, crossword puzzles, playing cards, and reading the morning newspaper.

In addition to being survived by his wife and son, Willie leaves behind his three brothers: Lucian (Betty), John (Sandra), Jimmy (Barbara), sister-in-law Aurelia, and all of their families of his twenty-two nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and great-great nieces. He also leaves behind his Martucci in-laws: Ronnie (Joanne), Johnny (Louise), Marie Santangelo, and all of their families of his twenty six nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Even though Willie’s passing will leave an empty place at many family tables, he will remain in our hearts forever.

Due to the current pandemic, there will be no services at this time, but a celebration in honor of his life will be planned later this year. Thank you all for your kind thoughts, patience, and understanding during this difficult, and unprecedented time.

Willie & Linda were old family friends of my parents Angelo and Sarah. I remember Willie always the life of the party. In my college years summers I worked the line as an apprentice thanks to John with Willie Lucien and Jimmy. That was some experience with life long memories. Our deepest condolences to Linda and family.

Linda we are so sorry to hear of Will’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We have so many fond memories of you and Will from our breakfast club. He was such an entertainer and his life stories always captivated us. So glad that John got to read all the chapters in his memoirs.

So sorry to hear about "Willie's passing. He was always very kind. He always made me laugh. Always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell. I think he and Linda had a special bond. Through adversity they lived life with kindness and a smile. God bless my cousin Linda and all the family. May he rest in peace.
