William J. Riordan, 60, of Naples, FL formerly of Marco Island, FL and Derby, CT. God took his weary hand and called him home on March 23, 2013 after a full and happy life.
Bill was born in Derby, CT to Joseph and Mildred Riordan. He graduated from Derby High School and attended Sacred Heart University in Bridgeport, CT where he met and married his best friend Marianne Barbara Saleski. Bill was active in STORM Engine Company of Derby and developed a great love for being a volunteer fire fighter. In 1973 Bill joined the Trumbull Police Department where he made his career as a police officer. Upon retiring in 1999, Bill and Marianne moved to Marco Island, FL where he enjoyed the warm gulf breeze. Bill was a kind and loving man who would do anything for anyone, the type of guy that would give you the shirt off his back. He touched so many lives in so many ways and will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
Left to cherish his memory are his devoted wife of almost 39 years, Marianne; his sister Pat Reineck of Oxford, CT; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Robert and Teri Saleski of Newtown, CT; Nephew, Dave Oates of Peru, MA; nieces Eileen Hine of Oxford, CT and Starr Katz of South Salem, NY as well as several great nieces and nephews.
A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, April 6 at 11am at San Marco Catholic Church, 851 San Marco Rd, Marco Island, FL 34145.
