Obituary of William J. Woch

William "Bill" J. Woch (Husband, Dad, Grandpa, Brother, Uncle) was born on April 9th, 1954, in Buffalo, New York, to the late Czeslaw and Wilhelmina Woch. Bill was the loving brother of Regina, Christel, Marion, and the late Lydia, late Richard, late Alfred, and late Robert. Bill was dedicated to helping others using his expertise as an engineer. Bill was an engineer at MOOG for over 45 years and a skilled carpenter in his spare time. His engineering and carpentry skills knew no bounds, and if you could imagine it, Bill could build it. Bill did not only find a fulfilling career at MOOG but found the love of his life, Shirley. His wife Shirley was also employed at MOOG. Shirley caught his eye, and he immediately pursued her. Shirley at first let Bill chase her until an office employee reassured Shirley, "He's a very nice man and really smart." Little did she know, she and Bill would tie the knot and be happily married for over 44 years. Bill and Shirley enjoyed antiquing all over Ohio and Pennsylvania collecting brass and primitive antiques to decorate their home. They would go on day trips, go on drives together, admire the countryside, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. When Bill wasn't traveling, you could find him in his work shed listening to K-Love Christian radio while creating birdhouses, benches, wooden chickens, and Domino boards. No job was too small for Bill; He could make almost anything, even several garages. Bill and his sons, Billy, and Derek would often build and fix things together. He taught his Sons from a very early age how to make and fix almost anything. If you, did it wrong, Bill would tell you the right way. Bill loved his three grandchildren, Victoria, Madeline, and Parker. As a grandfather, Bill spoiled his grandkids. He made each day at Grandpa's special, unique, and fun. The grandchildren never knew what fun activities grandpa had in store for them when they visited. They enjoyed seeing the sunflowers grandpa and grandma grew every year in the garden. Bill also held a huge Halloween party for his grandchildren every year. Bill had a big appetite for food and enjoyed his appetizers. A lover of all kinds of dishes, he most enjoyed grilling for the family, especially on Father's Day. Bill liked playing dominoes with friends and family, often creating domino boards for their games. Bill would also gather with family in his living room to watch his beloved Buffalo Bills play. Besides watching football, Bill was an avid Trump fan who diligently watched FOX News. Woch, William J.
