The Mercury (Pottstown, PA) - - OBITUARIES -

Wil­liam An­thony Civitello, a life­long Phoenixville-area res­i­dent, died at home of nat­u­ral causes on May 16, 2018. He was 67.

Son of the late Daniel T. Civitello, Sr. and Alice G. Civitello.

Bill at­tended Phoenixville schools, grad­u­at­ing in 1969 from the Tech­ni­cal Col­lege High School. He then stud­ied com­mer­cial art at the Hus­sian Col­lege School of Art in Philadel­phia. His first job in that field was with Chilton Pub­lish­ing Com­pany, where, be­fore the In­ter­net age, he worked on the schematic draw­ings which were part of car­repair man­u­als.

Bill later worked as a Work­shop Su­per­vi­sor at Handi-Crafters, Inc. His last job was as a sales­man at Ni­cholas Smith Trains in Broomall.

From his ear­li­est years, Bill was en­am­ored with model trains, and one of his chief joys was spend­ing a Satur­day with his “train bud­dies” vis­it­ing the home of an­other train buff to ad­mire a model rail­road lay­out.

A born imi­ta­tor and im­per­son­ator, Bill en­joyed many years play­ing roles at the Forge The­ater. He was most proud of his Screen Ac­tors Guild mem­ber­ship, which he held since 1980. He ap­peared as an ex­tra in Dead Man Down and Silver Lin­ings Play­book.

Bill was pre­de­ceased by his lov­ing wife of 32 years, Ju­dith Ann (Pen­ny­packer) Civitello. He is sur­vived by a sis­ter, Ali­cia, and a brother Daniel T., Jr. and will be enor­mously missed by his lov­ing fe­line com­pan­ions, Pennsy and Oakie.
