William Carney

March 1, 1942 — October 15, 2022

Girard

The world lost a good one, a man, a myth, a legend.  Bill signed his final scorecard on Saturday October 15, 2022 at 2:15 p.m. with his beloved wife by his side.
William Carney was born March 1, 1942 in Youngstown, Ohio a son to the late William M. and Ann E. (Klingerman) Carney.  William  was a graduate of Girard High School and Youngstown State University. He  retired as a Captain at the Girard Police Department. He was a cop's cop, one of the good guys. Bill  was a lifelong  member of St. Rose Church where he and his wife raised their family in faith. He was a die hard Notre Dame fan and spent as many days as he could on the golf course with his buddies from the North Hills Golf League at his second home, Mahoning Country Club. He will be missed dearly by his wife, Eva (Colaianni) Carney whom he married February 1, 1969. He also leaves to cherish his memory his children, Colleen (Mark) Poalson, of Lorain, Ohio; Christopher (Cindy) Carney of Uniontown, Ohio; and Cathy (Dana) Moore, of Wadsworth, Ohio.  He also leaves his grandchildren, Alex Poalson, Marissa Poalson, Mark  Poalson, Christopher Carney, Michael Carney, Matthew Carney, Jason Moore, and Jennifer Moore.  William was preceded in death by grandson Ethan Moore, brother James T. Carney and sister Joanne Carney.

A Memorial Mass will be held on Monday, October 24th at St. Rose Church in Girard at 12:00 PM where calling hours will be an hour prior.
