Obituary of William A. Carano
William A. Carano passed away suddenly on June 24,2019 at the age of 72.
He was enjoying a day with his 2 dogs, at Lake Meade in Nevada where he lived.
Bill grew up in Peekskill, New York, where he attended high school. Upon graduation, he worked his way up in the nuclear power industry, eventually becoming a highly successful and widely respected professional with over forty years in the electrical and nuclear project management industry. He was quickly recognized for his natural brilliance and talent, as he was regularly promoted until he reached the level of a plant manager for the New York Power Authority at Indian Point. Bill was regarded as highly accomplished in his expertise in managing both construction outage projects, and within many technical roles ranging from work control manager to general maintenence supervisor. Even after his retirement from Indian Point, Bill was frequently hired around the country to advise, supervise, and manage outages at many major nuclear power plants.
Bill will always be remembered for his passions, which included music, specifically his guitar talents, cooking, love for animals, and his fondness for boats and the water. He was often happiest and most at peace when he would be found relaxing and playing his guitar, which often involved his ability to play almost any notes or chords simply by ear. He was an amazing chef who enjoyed cooking elaborate meals for his family. Bill combined an intensity with the joy for his favorite activities, and he would do so with the utmost perfection and precision.
