William A. “Billy” Cosner, husband of Lynn Breznicky Cosner of Boyertown, PA died unexpectedly on April 29, 2020 at the age of 65. Born on February 19, 1955 in Scranton, PA, he was the son of Robert and the late Ann Cosner.
Billy graduated from Abington Heights High School, Class of 1973. Following graduation, he served in the US Navy on the USS Nimitz CVN-68 as an Electrician’s Mate. He was a “plank owner” and crew member when the ship was placed in commission.
On November 8, 1980 he married his “bride”, Lynn Breznicky. They recently celebrated 39 years of marriage and for all those years, Billy continued using the term “bride” when referring to Lynn. Billy and Lynn raised a son Brent David Cosner.
Billy was a loyal and dedicated employee of C & S Wholesale Grocers in Robesonia where he worked as a Merchandising Sales Specialist. His passion was the time he spent teaching his cycle class at Final Results Fitness in Gilbertsville, PA, and was deeply saddened when he needed to give this up due to work obligations.
Billy enjoyed his vacations to Jamaica and Mexico with friends. He would have a smile on his face for the entire trip and will be lovingly remembered for his infectious smile and laugh. He loved taking car rides with Lynn, where some of their best conversations took place. Billy enjoyed both fresh water and deep-sea fishing, playing pool, and cooking. He took pride in dog training his favorite Weimaraners, especially Maggie.
Surviving in addition to his loving wife and best friend Lynn, is his father Robert Cosner of Clarks Summit, PA, his sister Elizabeth Breslin of Palm Beach Gardens, FL, in laws Nancy & Oliver Richards of Clarks Summit, PA, Robert and Addie Breznicky of Clearwater, FL, as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews, and friends. He is predeceased by his son Brent Cosner, his mother Ann Cosner, his sister Christine Lewis, and brother Robert Cosner, Jr. Services will be private at the convenience of the family.
It gives his family comfort knowing that he has been reunited with them in heaven. Rest in the sweetest peace, Billy. We will forever carry your memory in our hearts. May you have fair winds and following seas, for all of eternity.
