William J. "Billy" Carson, 67, of Meadowlands, Pennsylvania died Friday, January 3, 2020 in his home following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Bill was born in Shadyside Pennsylvania on August 25, 1952 the Son of the late William G. Carson and Ruth M. Schneider.
Bill was a 1970 graduate of Keystone Oaks High School. Bill retired from Washington Ford in January of 2017. He previously worked at Iron City Spring Company.
Bill was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He never knew a stranger. With his quick wit and gregarious nature, Bill made friends every where he went. He was always interested in learning where folks were from and where they went to school. He would then proudly share that he was from Dormont, the “center of the universe”. Bill loved spending time with his family and coaching his Sons and Grandsons in baseball and wrestling. He was a dedicated Pittsburgh Sports fan and enjoyed watching the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates with his Wife every season.
Bill is survived by his loving Wife Linda; Sons Bill (Meghan) Carson, Corey (Kristy) Carson, Martin Yater, and Zac Yater, Grandsons Aiden, Noah, Kyler, Nikolas, Ty, Alex, and Bryce, Sisters Donna Carson, and Diane (Guy) Stehle, and several nieces and nephews.
