Obituary of William Guarino

William R. Guarino of Port Richey Florida, formerly of Woodridge passed away peacefully at home on Friday, August 16, 2019. He was 84.

He was born on April 17, 1935 in Brooklyn, NY to the son of the late Gicochino and Ann DelPrete Guarino.

Willie, as many knew him by, proudly served our country in the United States Marine Corps as a Sergeant from 1954-1956. He was a mechanic by trade but a master at everything; he had a talent for being able to fix anything. He had a heart of gold and would give the shirt off his back if there was a person in need. He was known to everyone and everyone was known to him as "Moe". In his younger days he loved to travel and there was not a party that went by he wasn't dancing the night away. When he was living in New York he was a member of the Church of the Immaculate Conception and the Fallsburg Senior Citizens.

He loved to spend his time with his family, whether it was having coffee and sweets or playing a very competitive card game. He loved his family dearly but was the most proud of his grandchildren; whether he was watching them at their cheerleading competitions, on the lacrosse field or watching his smallest granddaughter walk across the floor he always cheered them on with a joyful clap or a smile that would lite up his whole face. He was one of a kind and will be deeply missed by everyone that knew him.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving children Jack Guarino and his wife Rita, Rosalie Szynal and her husband Steve, Hero (Peter) Taliercio, and Anthony Guarino and his wife Ashley, his granddaughters Danielle and Stephanie Guarino, Sara and Julia Szynal and Sarai Guarino, his brothers Jack, Joseph and Ralph Guarino, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends. He was predeceased by his sister Nettie Perrello and his brother Tony Guarino.
