William Arthur Trudeau Sr., 74, of Sandy Hook, died Dec. 24, 2012, at Danbury Hospital, with his wife of 53 years, Barbara Hunihan Trudeau, at his side.
Bill, as he was known, operated the Newtown Amoco gas station for 35 years. He loved going to car and air shows. And watching the planes at local airports was one of his favorite things to do.
Bill is survived by three sons, Bill Jr. and his wife, Heather of Wilton, Brett Trudeau of Sandy Hook, and Don Trudeau of Cranston, R.I.; two brothers, Robert Trudeau of Torrington, and Joe Trudeau of Sandy Hook; two sisters Cynthia Yeates of Brookfield, and Sandra Koch of Middlebury; as well as five grandchildren, Will, Max, Lily, Ella, and Hazelle; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents, Donat and Helen Trudeau; a brother, Richard Trudeau; and a sister, Judy Trudeau, all of Sandy Hook.
Services are private and for family only. A memorial service will take place at a future date. Arrangements are in the care of the Carpino Funeral Home of Southbury.
