Obituary For William J. Slatosky

Age 91, passed peacefully on Monday, April 12, 2021. Loving husband of 60 years to the late Marilyn M. (Brasington); father of Mary Ann (Jeff) Green and William R. (the late Cecelia); proud grandfather of Ryan Green, Billy (Kelly), Christopher, Meghann and Aimee Slatosky; great-grandfather of Adeline Slatosky; brother of Shirley (the late John) Amprim, John (Nancy) Slatosky and the late Ronald (the late Beverly) Slatosky. Born and raised in West Newton, he attended West Newton High School and graduated as valedictorian. While studying physics at Carnegie Tech, he was drafted during the Korean War to honorably serve as rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army counterintelligence. After completing his military service, he returned to Carnegie Tech to graduate with a Bachelor's of Science in physics. He then began work in the steel industry as an early pioneer installing process control computers, furthered his education in metallurgical engineering and continued his career as a consultant for the steel and chemical industries, as well as the tech industry-including IBM. Upon retiring, he enjoyed spending time with his family and keeping busy with many activities such as painting, reading, playing trumpet and spending countless summer hours sunbathing and swimming laps at the local pool.

Bill you are going to be missed. I will always treasure the time that I got to know you while swimming laps at Baldwin Pool and the painting of the Coca-Cola barn that you painted and I have hanging in my room. My condolences to the Slatosky family. May you rest in peace. Karen and Theresa Sterzinger
