William "Bill" J. Cardarelli, 67, longtime resident of Westford, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 12, 2019, at Emerson Hospital, Concord, after a courageous 9 year battle with cancer surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Margaret A. "Peggy" (Allman) Cardarelli with whom he shared 24 years of marriage.

He was born in Newton, MA, on June 24, 1952, and was a son of the late Dante J. and M. Theresa (Lombardi) Cardarelli.

Bill was raised in Newton and has lived in Westford for the past 24 years. He was a graduate of Mass. College of Pharmacy, Boston, and has worked at Harvard Vanguard, Watertown, for over 30 years. Bill was an avid sports fan and car enthusiast. He loved spending time at the beach and vacationing in Disney World. He was known as a handyman who could fix everything. Most of all, Bill cherished time spent with his family.

In addition to his loving wife Peggy, Bill leaves his daughter Nicole Cardarelli of Westford, his brother Robert Cardarelli of Waltham, his brother-in-law Gary Cardone of Ayer, his niece Michelle Cardone of Ayer, and his nephew Nicholas Cardone of Boston. Sadly, he was predeceased by his sister Nancy Cardone.

My sincerest condolences to Bill's family and friends and colleagues. Bill was a great mentor and friend to me. He was always helpful and encouraging and supportive. He will be missed greatly by me and all his pharmacy friends and co-workers at Atrius Health. Rest in peace Bill.

Our heartfelt condolences go to Peggy and Nicole. Bill will be missed VERY much. We have very fond memories of our time together at the skating rink and the yearly cookouts with the girls and families. It won't be the same without you! With fond respect, John, Manisha, Shania, and Niki James

Deep peace my friend. I will miss you terribly but am so proud to call you my friend and my customer. You fought a courageous battle not one that many could undertake. You met your goals, to see Nicole graduate from high school, to see her graduate from college, to take of your Peggy. You were my friend at my darkest hour and I will miss our coffee sessions. Until we met again.
