SALISBURY, WILLIAM M.

Funeral services took place July 6 at Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church, Jersey City, for William M. “Billy” Salisbury, 49, of Jersey City. He passed away at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, on July 1, with his family by his side. Born in Jersey City, Billy was a lifelong resident and graduate of Dickinson High School. He worked as a handyman at the Chelsea Piers Market in New York for 18 years. Billy was an avid fisherman, a skilled bowler and enjoyed trips to Atlantic City. He was known to one and all as Billy “No Problem” Salisbury. He never met a man, woman, child or animal that he didn’t love, and that love was reciprocated by all those he encountered. William was predeceased by his parents, Richard and Marion Salisbury; his uncle, Ben Morgan and aunt, Marguerite Olson. He was the stepson of Gertrude Salisbury; brother of Carol Kelleher (Matthew), Richard Salisbury (Leanne), Barbara Javier (Fran), David Salisbury (Brenda), Michael Salisbury and Ellen Miracle; uncle of Matthew Kelleher (Juanita) and Jennifer Hrubes (James), and a host of nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews. Also surviving William are his fiancé, Tabitha Gabriele and her  family. He was best-friend to his pet, Benji. Services arranged by the McLaughlin Funeral Home, Jersey City.
