William “Billy” Gleason, Jr.

October 25, 2021


From kickin’ puddles on the way to school to twisting knobs, mixing bands, and hitting the road with the King Snakes, the “Legendary 20$ Bill” unexpectedly passed away on Monday, October 25. For reasons he was needed somewhere else rather than here. Billy worked for the City of Syracuse in Parks and Rec. He enjoyed Indy Races at the Glen, golf, music, barbeques and Labatt Blue. Billy will forever be 27 and “calmer than you dude.”


Billy is survived by his children; Shayne, Kada  (Rob) Haines, Bre, their mother, Suzie Gleason, and grandchildren, Addison O’Dell, and Tyler, Jacob and Julia Haines. Billy is number 4 of 7 of the Audrey and William Gleason family. He is survived by his siblings, Pat, Mike, Deb (Sue Greenstein), Dawn (Linda Dauccio), Jim (Lori), and John Robert (Patty) and many nieces and nephews.


Services will be private.


Billy will be missed deeply.


Rest easy dad, we love you.
