Obituary for William G Sweetman Jr.

William "Bill" G. Sweetman, Jr., of Enfield, entered into Eternal Rest on Thursday, June 6, 2019, in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Stoneham, MA, the son to the late William and Marion (Keating) Sweetman. Bill was raised in Springfield, MA, and later moved to Enfield with his beloved wife of 62 years, Kathleen (Butler) Sweetman, where they made their home and raised their children. Bill proudly served our country in the United States Marine Corps as a Rifle Markman, where he was awarded the World War II Victory Medal. He was also a member of the Marine Police with the Enfield Police Department. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, a faithful parishioner of St. Bernard Church, as well as a former parishioner of St. Martha Church. Bill was a hard worker, and was employed as a meat selector at A + P, as well as Sweetlife. He was an avid fan of the Red Sox and the NY Giants, and a Fish and Game Constable. Bill found his greatest joys in life through spending time with his family, enjoying trips to Myrtle Beach and going camping. He will be remembered as a loving and dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. In addition to his beloved wife, Kathleen, Bill is survived by four children, William Sweetman and his wife Cheryl, Mary Lindsey and her husband, Paul, Nancy Sweetman, and Tim Sweetman and his wife, Kerry; grandchildren, Laura and Brenna Frost, Samantha Sweetman, Jennifer and Kyle McCurry, Rachel Lindsey and Matt Menard, Ashley and Chase Tyron, Caitlyn and Sarah Passmore, and Emily and Mollie Sweetman; and his three great grandchildren, Brenden McCurry, Colin McCurry, and Mason Menard. Bill was anxiously awaiting the arrival of two more great grandchildren in the next few months. Bill was predeceased by a brother, Lawrence Sweetman, and a grandson, Paul Lindsey.

Dear Sweetman Family, I am very sorry for your loss. I have many memories of Mr & Mrs Sweetman and my friend Billy, as well as Mary, Nancy and Tim. Queen Street was never the same after the Sweetman and Guilmette families moved out. My parents, Willie and Dottie Demers, fondly spoke of you many times over the years. You are all in my prayers. Daniel Demers, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
