WATERFORD William E. Powers Jr. of Waterford passed away Tuesday May 22, 2018. Born in Troy he was a lifelong Waterford resident.

He attended Siena College. A veteran of the US Army he served during the Korean War and was honorably discharged as a Corporal in 1954.

He was the beloved husband of 62 years to Dorothy “Dot” Reilly Powers and the proud father of William E. Powers III, Cathy C. Vanina (Bob), Kristin M. Upson (Jim) and the late Susan M. Serfilippi (John). He’s Pop to six grandchildren, Lynn (Chris) Slater, Daniel (Tatum) Serfilippi, Adison C. and Jordan C.

He was dear brother to the late Mary Powers O’Connor and Charles J. Powers. Several nieces and nephews also survive as well as friends at Lake George and Florida where he enjoyed golf.
