William M. Ulircuis
ULIRCUIS, WILLIAM M. (86) of Philadelphia, PA passed away on January 24, 2023. Beloved father of Patricia Mallon (Jim Mallon) and dear grandfather to Kelly Neeld (Chris), Katie Mallon (fiancé Chris), Gwyn Ulircuis and Violet Ulircuis. He recently just became a very excited great-grandfather to Christopher James Neeld. Sadly, he didn’t have the chance to meet Christopher, but he loved looking at his pictures and hearing all about him. He also has a son Michael Ulircuis. He was predeceased by his beautiful wife Barbara, his father William, mother Alice, brother Stephen and cherished Uncle John and Aunt Jane. Bill was determined to live to 100 but unfortunately dementia got the best of him.
Bill joined the U.S. Army in 1957 and served for two years. In his career days, Bill was a salesman for Continental Can Company which later became Stone Container. He retired on Halloween in 2001 and on his last day of work he walked through the door dressed in a tuxedo. He thought that was the best way to end his sales career! Bill worked two jobs for about 20 years. He delivered pizza for Pizza City two nights a week to help put his children through school. After retirement, he also delivered flowers for Torresdale Flower Shop for about 8 years. He so enjoyed talking to people and he loved seeing and meeting new people. Bill was a very generous man. He always gave back and would always try to help you with whatever you needed.
Bill spent many years traveling with his wife Barbara. They enjoyed many, many cruises together, trips to the mountains, Italy, and they even used to go to the Philly Wing Bowl for a few years when it first began. They did have a lot of fun together.
Services for Bill will be on Monday, January 30, 2023 at Robert L. Mannal Funeral Home, 6925 Frankford Avenue, Phila. PA 19135. Visitation 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. Service at 10:00 a.m. Calvary Cemetery to follow.
If you could, just raise your glass and toast Bill, (or Mr. U as some know him), I know he would love that and make him smile. Cheers Dad!
