YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – A loving husband, father and friend, William J. Hyland, left us peacefully on Monday, May 31, 2021.
William, who went by Bill, was born, June 27, 1959, in Youngstown, Ohio. He grew up in Canfield, Ohio, the youngest of four siblings. He idolized his parent’s lifestyle and accomplishments but held a deep endearing admiration for his father, a World War II veteran and successful businessman. With his father’s passing at a young age, everything his father achieved inspired Bill with reverence.
Bill graduated from Cardinal Mooney High School and then attended Gannon University & Youngstown State University, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
After years of prosperity in outside sales, Bill created his own company and continued focusing on its success.
Bill had many passions and hobbies, including golf, skiing, fishing, grilling, woodworking, Cleveland Browns, football, WWII cinema, he enjoyed time with his friends, family and above all telling jokes.
He had the charisma to enter a room where he knew no one but would leave with everyone having a smile on their face. He enjoyed traveling with his wife and some of their favorite places were Sedona, Arizona; Savannah, Georgia; Tampa, Florida; the Grand Canyon and many more.
Bill is survived by his admiring wife, Donna (Barry) Hyland; his three sons and spouses, William (Elaine) Hyland, Casey (Candace Zheng) Hyland and Donald E. Hyland; his sister, Cathy (Fred) Mowry; sister-in-law, Eileen Hyland; his brother-in-law, Jeff (Daniel) Clark; his only granddaughter, Brinley Parker Hyland and many other nieces, nephews, family and friends.
