William R. Pinti, 83, of Rome, passed away on Monday, November 7, 2022 at Bethany Gardens. Born in Rome on October 29, 1939, he was a son of the late Robert and Jennie (Clapps) Pinti. He was a graduate of Rome Free Academy and served his country in the United States Army.
After being Honorably Discharged from the Army, Bill returned to Rome and began his career working for the Federal Government at Griffis Air Force Base. He retired in 1995.
Bill was an avid golfer and played every day the weather would allow during his retirement, usually getting in around 150 rounds a year. He enjoyed watching horseracing, attending Saratoga Racecourse each summer, and having a beer and solving the World’s problems on Saturdays at DeMatteo’s.
Bill is survived by his former wife and mother of his children, Joan (Matt) Pinti; a daughter, Deborah Pinti; a son and daughter-in-law, William and Elizabeth Pinti; a brother, Anthony Pinti (Marlene); four cherished grandchildren, William Jr., Christopher, Nicholas and Natalia; special granddog, Luigi; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by a son, Todd Pinti; and two brothers, Robert and Harry Pinti.
Bill’s family would like to express their gratitude to Kristina Teriele and the staff at Bethany Gardens, as well as his caregivers, Toni Mascolo and Marlene Pinti, for their wonderful care and compassion.
