Marlborough – William W. Vinal Jr., 62, of Marlborough, died unexpectedly May 8, 2019, at his home. Bill was preceded in death by his adoring wife, Debra (Jusseaume) Vinal who died in 2012.
Born in Worcester, he was the son of the late William W. Vinal Sr. and Marie (Bouley) Vinal.
Bill loved spending time with his family, especially his children and grandchildren. He always had a special treat for all the children any time he would see them. He also loved being out on the open road on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, cruising the backroads and taking in the fresh air and freedom.
When he wasn’t spending time with his grandkids or on his Harley, you could probably find him on the tennis courts or softball fields where he met numerous friends and teammates.
He was a proud, longtime member of the United Steelworkers Union with over three and a half decades of dedicated service to Wyman-Gordon in North Grafton.
Bill is survived by his loving daughters, Melissa (Vinal) Clark and Melina (Vinal) Schlegelmilch; his grandchildren, Austin Whear, M Clark, Tighe Clark, Londen Whear, and Adelae Schlegelmilch; his sisters, Sarah Vinal, Rita Vinal and Marianne Vinal; his brother-in-law, Robert Leet, as well as dozens of nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews.
Visiting hours will be held Tuesday, May 14, from 4-7 p.m., at Slattery Funeral Home,Inc., 40 Pleasant St., Marlborough. A funeral service will follow at 7 p.m. at the funeral home.
