William D. DeNoia , age 76, died of cancer on October 3, 2023 at home in Ipswich, MA.
“Bill” is survived by his wife, Karen, of Ipswich; and his brother, John and his wife Lynn, of Charlestown, RI. He is preceded in death by his parents, John and Ida, of Groton, CT.
Bill was born on February 8, 1947 in New London, CT. He graduated from Lowell Technological Institute in 1969 with a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering. Bill was well-known for his passion for salt-water sport-fishing, having begun as a small child fishing with his family. He and his brother, “Jay”, ran a charter fishing operation on the “White Stallion” from Groton, CT, Pt. Judith, RI, and Gloucester, MA. In 1975, the brothers built their own second “White Stallion” from a Harris 35’ hull to replace the original Brownell, and focused their energies on fishing for Giant Atlantic Bluefin Tuna. They won several tournaments and together caught over 300 fish, with Bill landing at least 200 as angler. In 1978, they bought a Stonington dragger, the “Grace R”, and shifted primarily to commercial fishing for groundfish, first from CT and then moving to Gloucester, MA.
After marrying Karen in 1979, Bill settled into his engineering career, working primarily as a production manager and engineering supervisor at several food and beverage companies. He and Karen bought a small horse farm in Ipswich, MA, where they raised and boarded horses.
After cremation, Bill will be interred in the family plot at St. Mary’s Cemetery in New London, CT. A small graveside service followed by a Celebration of Life will be held for family. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the American Cancer Society via https://www.cancer.org/donate/donate-by-mail-or-phone.html.
