Sr. Guillermo Chetrancolo Texeira

June 25, 1929 — March 1, 2020

Sr. Guillermo Chetrancolo Texeira, a.k.a. Villan or William, passed away peacefully on March 1, 2020 at 1:00am with his family by his side. William was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico on June 25, 1929, moved to New York in 1963, and was a resident of New Brunswick, NJ for 55 years.

William worked as a machine operator mechanic for over 25 years with Gary Manufacturer, New Brunswick. He raised 3 children and 7 nieces and nephews. He was a great-great grandfather with a contagious laugh who loved to entertain friends and family throughout the Holiday seasons. He was well known for recording every minute of every occasion to have memories that could be relived over and over again. William was an avid gardener and an all around handy-man, a jack of all trades, who gave the shirt off his back to help those in need.

William was predeceased by his wife Carmen, a.k.a. Cambu, his parents, Celso Chetrancolo and Maria Texeira, sister, Maria Teresa Texeira, nieces, Eulalia Rivera and Yolanda Bosques, and nephew Eugenio Lopez. William is survived by his loving children, Jose Chetrancolo, Marilyn Arent, and Waldemar Chetrancolo, 17 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren, 6 great-great grandchildren, and 4 nieces and nephews.

Friends and family are welcome and encouraged to visit The Sanctuary of North Brunswick (17 Laurel Place, North Brunswick, NJ) on Thursday March 5, 2020 from 5-9pm with a Church service to be held at 7:30pm. Funeral service will be held at The Sanctuary of North Brunswick on Friday March 6, 2020 at 10:00am with internment at St. Peter’s Cemetery, New Brunswick to follow.
