Bill was born on June 9, 1950 to the late Herman and Ruth Fersch. He was one of five children to bless the family. After graduating Rutherford High in 1968 he headed off to Wagner College where he would earn his BS in Chemistry. A year into college he drove north and attended Woodstock with somebuddies. Bill was a true hippie through and through. He still had the original admission ticket.
He was passionate about his education having spent 2 years abroad in Medical School. He was a Mensa member and earned his MBA in Computer Science.
After college he started his career in pharmaceuticals. In 1987,he became a Dad. This was his proudest role of all. He loved watching his daughter Erica grow and bragged of her often all 33 years of her life. When he wasn’t at work he loved to cheer on his beloved NY Yankees & NY Giants. He believed much could be cured with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and some good chocolate. Although we are saddened by his passing, we take comfort in knowing he is at peace and watching over his family from above.
He leaves his daughter Erica Fersch, his brother Edward Fersch(Kathy Berg), his sister Carolyn Healy (Kevin); his loyal canines Carina and Shelby; niece Alisa Fersch (Henry Adams), nephews Gabriel Fersch (Hazel) and Daniel Healy (Hannah), manyfriends and colleagues. His brother Donald and sister Dorothy passed previously.
