William A. Nedoroscik
1940 – 2018
William “Bill” A. Nedoroscik was born on August 11, 1940 in Cohoes, New York to the late John and Agnes Nedoroscik. He was the brother of Carol Soulia, Chuck and Jim Nedoroscik, and the late Deloris Speanburg, Jean Herman, Ed and Jackie Nedoroscik.
Bill served in the U.S. Navy from 1958-1961. During this time he became a part of Task Group Alpha, where he served aboard the U.S.S. Valley Forge CVS-45. During his time with the U.S. Navy, Bill participated in Project Mercury, Project Skyhook, and was involved in the rescuing of all 28 survivors of the tanker SS Pine Ridge, which had broken in two during an unforgiving storm. He then went on to serve in the Naval Reserves until his honorable discharge in 1964.
After his time in the U.S. Navy, Bill enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1965. He fought valiantly against hostile forces in the Republic of Vietnam, and participated in the since declassified operations known as Deckhouse III, Deckhouse III phase 2-Code name “Toledo”, and Deckhouse IV. Bill was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 1968. He was the proud recipient of both the National Defense Service Medal and the Vietnam Service Medal.
Bill is survived by his son William J. Nedoroscik of Clifton Park, New York, with whom he had a close relationship with. He had a special relationship with several nieces and nephews, and is also survived by several great nieces and nephews. Bill was always helping others out of the kindness of his heart, and had a soft spot for children and those in need, especially military veterans.
Bill worked in the construction industry for H & M Contractors and John L Wojcik, Inc. for most of his civilian life. He later became the Camp Manager at Kelts’ Grove in Waterford, New York.
Bill was a patriotic veteran, who served on the Board of Directors of the Veterans of Lansingburgh Club, Troy, New York. He also served as a marshal during several parades over the years and was awarded the “Veteran of the Year” award in 2016.
