William T. Kearney Jr. March 4, 1931-September 28, 2021.

William T. Kearney Jr. “Bill", 90, of Norwich, CT died on September 28, 2021. He was born in Norwich, CT on March 4, 1931 son of the late William T. Kearney Sr. and Marguerite (Keirans) Kearney.

Bill was a graduate of Norwich Free Academy. Bill served his country in the United States Air Force as a radar specialist in Iceland during the Korean War. After his service, he worked for the CT Department of Transportation as a highway engineer for over 35 years. Following retirement, Bill worked at two car dealerships in Norwich for fun due to his love of cars.

Nothing made him happier than to spend time with his family.
