William Francis Daly, 87

William F. Daly of Sanatoga, Pennsylvania, was called to God on April 30, 2022, at Chandler Hall Hospice in Newtown, PA. He was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, on March 19, 1935.

Bill was the oldest child of Bernice (Kelley) and William Henry Daly, Jr., and brother to Judith (Haley) and the late Joseph Daly. He was raised in Monson, Massachusetts, graduating from Monson High School in 1953. The nearby woods and streams inspired Bill’s lifelong love of the outdoors and fly-fishing on the Quaboag River.

Bill earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Massachusetts in 1957 and began working as a programmer in the pioneering days of electronic data processing. In 1963 Bill married Anne (Leahy) of Rockland, Massachusetts, and relocated to Pennsylvania. They resided in Sanatoga for over 50 years with their children and were active members of St. Aloysius and St. Teresa of Calcutta parishes. Bill retired from Guy Carpenter / Marsh McLennan, Philadelphia, in 2004, following MIS roles with Berwind, Alco Standard and Biddle Instruments.

Bill is survived by his children William F., Jr. and Patricia Simmers (Joseph); and grandchildren Liam, Lucinda and Thomas. He was predeceased by his wife, Anne, and son Peter. He will be remembered by many special nieces and nephews, neighbors and friends.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, May 6 at 11:00 at St. Teresa of Calcutta Church, 256 Swamp Pike, Schwenksville, PA, with Fr. Pidgeon officiating. Burial will follow in St. Aloysius New Cemetery, Pottstown. Visitation will be from 10:00 to 11:00 at the church.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances in his name may be made to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (myasthenia.org).
