William P (Smith) Smith

July 28, 1934 ~ November 21, 2021 (age 87)


William P. Smith, "Billy" 87, of Wilkes Barre, passed away on Sunday, November 21, 2021. at Wilkes Barre General Hospital.
Born in Plymouth on July 28, 1934, he was a son of the late William and Lenore (Blackman) Smith. Billy was a graduate of St. John's Pittston High School. Following graduation, he joined The United States Air Force, where he proudly served his county. He married his love, Regina, in August of 1982, after a thirteen year engagement. Billy loved collecting pennies, he would save them and roll them, until he had so many, he had to cart them to the bank to cash them in. He worked for several different construction companies throughout his years doing electrical and painting, but the job he was most proud of was being a professional boxer. His love for the sport was enormous and it is something he will be most remembered for. 
In addition to his parents, Billy was preceded in death by his brothers, Phillip and Gerry Smith.
He is survived by his loving wife Regina.
Services are private and will be held at the convenience of the family.
