Bill, as he was known, operated the Newtown Amoco gas station for 35 years. He loved going to car and air shows. And watching the planes at local airports was one of his favorite things to do.

He was predeceased by his parents, Donat and Helen Trudeau; a brother, Richard Trudeau; and a sister, Judy Trudeau, all of Sandy Hook.

Services are private and for family only. A memorial service will take place at a future date. Arrangements are in the care of the Carpino Funeral Home of Southbury.
