William H. Benderski

April 7, 1955 — October 4, 2021

William H. Benderski, 66, of Syracuse, passed away peacefully Monday at Upstate University Hospital after a long battle with cancer.

Bill was born in Syracuse on April 7, 1955. After graduating from Bishop Ludden High School in 1973, he went on to get his radio operator’s license.

Bill proudly worked at Gianelli Sausage for 50 years, holding several positions over the decades. His close co-workers are like a second family. In 1978, he met Debbie and they were married in 1981. In 1982 they had their only child, his namesake, Bill, Jr. Very passionate about music, he could often be found listening to tunes and playing the guitar in his recliner after work and on the weekends. Anyone who knew Bill knew him as a good man, a hard worker, and a loving father and husband.

Bill was predeceased by his parents, Zeon and Stephanie; and his brother, Robert.

Bill is survived by his wife, Deborah; son, William; brother, Ronald (Kristin Lovecchio) and several nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends may call Friday, October 8 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Buranich Funeral Home, 5431 W. Genesee St., Camillus. The family requests that all flowers and notes be sent to Buranich Funeral Home. Face masks are required.
