Obituary

William Morrow Gillette was born November 4, 1930 to the late Viola May Nevius Gillette and William Gillette in Somerville, New Jersey. William grew up and attended schools in Somerville, New Jersey and later moved to Plainfield, New Jersey in the fifty’s. He also began working for Roma Plastics.
William met and married Susan Worrilds on March 28, 1954, and together they raised their son Mark Gillette Sr. He retired from Roma Plastics after many dedicated years of service.
William was a patient husband, ever-present father, unforgettable grandfather and loving presence who enjoyed riding his bicycle, gardening, watching football and boxing, cooking for his family and telling his grandchildren stories.
William will truly be missed. He smiled through all of life’s twists and turns, and his grateful heart whispered through every circumstance.

Left to cherish his memory includes his wife, Susan Gillette; his son , Mark Gillette Sr.; his grandchildren, Zara Hairston, Yannick Gillette, Mark Gillette, Jr., Kandis Gillette and Charisma Gillette; his great grandchildren, Harlem Hairston, I’Naya Gillette, Evyr Hairston, Amor Gillette, Kinsington Hairston, Zailyn Alexander and Yana Gillette.; a host of nieces, nephews and fantastic neighbors and friends.
