William P. Strassel passed away Saturday February 21, 2015 in Eastern Niagara Hospital, Lockport.

Born in Lockport, New York on July 12, 1929, he was the son of the late William P. Jr. and Alice M. (nee Curtis) Strassel.

William attended Lockport Senior High School, served in the United States Army from 1948 until 1952, and continued his education graduating from SUNY Canton. William worked at Harrison Radiator, Division of General Motors for 40 years, retiring in 1990 as an HVAC Engineer.

He was a member of the American Legion B. Leo Dolan Post 410, Elks Club, Niagara County Historical Society, Olcott and Wilson Yacht Clubs, and a past member of the Tuscarora Club. He enjoyed playing baseball, softball, racquetball, boating, and teaching his grandchildren to fish. William appreciated spending time and socializing with his many dedicated friends.  He and his loving wife Sharon enjoyed a fulfilling retirement spending eighteen years in Bradenton, Florida, before returning to Lockport.
