William “Bill” John Wayland, 90, of Southington, passed away surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at the Hospital of Central CT in New Britain. He was the beloved husband of 64 years to Norma Elaine (Weaver) Wayland.
Bill was born on September 22, 1931 in Blackstone, MA son to the late William F. and Roseanne (Gallagher) Wayland. A man’s man, who was full of life and energy, he proudly served our country in the United State Air Force and retired after over 21 years of dedication. As a retired veteran, Bill began a career in quality control working for Electro-Mechanics in New Britain for 20 years. He was mechanically inclined, able to fix anything and solve most, if not all, problems. Bill had a wealth of knowledge that he shared with others regardless of being the “old stubborn bull.” He enjoyed music and moving to the beat of it as he was a good dancer. Above all, Bill was a true family man and loved his family deeply. He leaves his family with many loving memories to cherish.
In addition to his wife, Bill leaves behind his children, Robyn Wayland, Michele Younan and her husband, Ihab, and William J. Wayland; his grandchildren, Jason Geel and his wife, Colleen, and Shawn Geel and his wife, Cassandra; his great-grandchildren, Jordan Davis, Izabella Geel, Addelyn Geel, Brooklyn Geel, and Ellesyn Geel; his brother, Andrew Wayland; his sister, Anne Velardi; and several nieces, nephews, and extended family members. He was predeceased by his brothers, Gerald and James Wayland and his sister-in-law, Jean Wayland.
