William Pierce Chesworth Obituary

William Pierce Chesworth

William Pierce Chesworth, 69, of West Springfield passed away July 31, 2020 at his home. William, son of Barbara (McAloon) Chesworth and the late William Chesworth Jr., was born in East Milton, MA on September 26, 1950. William was a graduate of Classical High School Class of 1968 and attended the University of Maine Orono and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He worked as an Awning and Window Treatment Installer at Chilson’s Shops Inc. in Easthampton, MA where he retired after many years of faithful service. In his adult life, William became a boating enthusiast and captained several increasingly sophisticated motorized rafts before expanding his horizons to cruises on his prized 17-foot Boston Whaler on New England rivers, lakes, and oceans. He was an avid reader and a loyal GMC vehicle owner and very proud of the various trucks and SUVs he owned over the years. William also enjoyed vacationing on the Maine coastline, especially at Bar Harbor, York, Kennebunkport, and other southern Maine destinations. Above all, he was very dedicated to taking care of his mother, Barbara, and he was her biggest support. In addition to his mother, William is survived by his sister, Gail Chesworth-Taylor and her husband Greg Taylor, and other extended family members and friends. He was predeceased by his uncle Pierce Chesworth and aunts Janet McAloon Dyer and Rosaline Hunt McAloon. Funeral Services will be private. Sampson’s Family Chapels have been entrusted with his arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in William’s memory may be made to Dakin Humane Society, 171 Union St., Springfield, MA 01105.
