William J. Tellier, age 82, passed away on Monday, December 7, 2020.

William's life motto was "Love, Patience, and Understanding" and all that knew him knew it as well. He was known as dad, coach, mentor, hero, and best friend and will be remembered for his kindness, compassion, and care. He maintained a close and loving relationship with his brother. He dearly loved his children and grandchildren, and he faced his health battles with courage and honor. He never complained and life's challenges never got in the way of his love of God, family, and life. He was fun-loving and had a great sense of humor. He will be dearly missed.

William was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Jane Tellier in 2013.

He is survived by his son, Thomas and Jackie Tellier; son, Michael and Dawn Tellier; daughter, Jane and Jamie Laferriere; grandchildren, Nicholas Tellier, Jonathan Tellier, Gregory Tellier, Olivia Laferriere, Emily Laferriere, Audrey Laferriere, Amber and Joseph VanEssendelft, Jack Tellier; brother, Duane and Betty Tellier; niece, Kris and Jeff Sedore; cousins; and his grand-dogs, Sterling, Marshall, Kipper, and Sophie.
