William J. Giordano
Oct 26, 2021

Bill loved teasing Marsha about everything, talking about his grandchildren, his retirement role at New Bedford Floor and his Sunday morning breakfast crew. Prior to his death, he was fortunate to be able to see Marsha, his children and his brother's sons, who were so special to him.
Survivors include his wife Marsha; a daughter, Jacqueline Giordano Bedard and her husband Eric of Norwood; 2 sons, Braden Giordano of Reston, VA and Bryon Giordano and his wife Sara of Alexandria, VA; 5 grandchildren, Alexandra, Olivia, Maggie, Robert and Ellis; and many nieces and nephews.
He was the brother of the late Robert Giordano and father of the late Christine Giordano.
