William (Bill) Diaczok, age 85, of Trumbull, beloved husband of the late Lillian L. Diaczok, passed away peacefully on February 17, 2013.

Bill was loving, compassionate and devoted to his family and friends. He enjoyed traveling with his late wife Lill, of sixty years, in addition to tinkering around his home using his extraordinary mind to solve problems and be creative. Bill’s latest project was restoring a 1950 roadster.

His desire to learn and discover was unyielding.

The family would like to thank and extend their heartfelt appreciation to the Quigley family and Officer Millington of Trumbull, and to the staff of St. Vincent’s Medical Center.

A celebration of Bill’s life will take place in April.
