William Charles "Billy" Decker, who attended high school in both Westchester and Fairfield counties, lost his battle with addiction Tuesday afternoon at his home in Armonk. He was 32.
William Charles Decker was born on Aug. 29, 1985, and attended Iona Prep before graduating from The Brunswick School in Greenwich in 2004. He then went on to receive his Bachelor’s degree from Northeastern University in Boston.
Billy was known for his enthusiasm for sports, especially basketball which was his passion. He was also an avid Knicks fan. Not only did he love to play, but also took great pleasure in watching his younger siblings and cousins play sports.
He went to Madison Square Garden every chance he could due to his love for the Big East conference, specifically the St. John’s Red Storm and never accepted the dismantling of “the real Big East” conference.
Although Billy was a living and breathing Giants football "True Blue" fan, he was happiest when watching his little brother, Kevin, who attended the University of New Hampshire where he played football.
Billy loved attending UNH football games, he was Kevin’s No. 1 fan and was beloved by the team.
Billy was constantly rocking his Yanks sweatshirt and flat-brimmed hat, which were a part of him, screaming his love for the Yankees.
Billy found great joy in visiting his sister, Samantha, in the Vermont Mountains to snowboard and be among friends.
Billy is survived by his parents, Charlene and Bill, his sister, Samantha, and his brother Kevin, many aunts, uncles, and cousins, whom he loved dearly.
He also leaves behind his two four-legged buddies, Jake and Bodie.
Viewing is 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17 at Oekler-Cox and Sinatra Funeral Home, 262 E. Main St. in Mt. Kisco, NY.
Service is 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 18 at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 50 Bedford Rd. in Armonk.
