William Alger, 76, passed away August 6, 2018. Bill was born in New Brunswick, NJ, to the late Nicholas and Genevieve Alger. Bill attended East Orange schools and St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark, NJ. He graduated with a degree in engineering from Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY, and continued his education with Masters Degrees in Engineering and Business from Rutgers University in NJ.
Bill is survived by his wife of 50 years, Judy; brother George (Pauline) and sister Angela Fjellman (Tom). He was the proud uncle to many nieces and nephews and now great nieces and nephews. He loved his family near and extended and was always ready to help in any way he could.
Bill spent his business career with the Exxon Corporation in Chemical Engineering. He had the opportunity to live in Brussels, Belgium, and Nassau the Bahamas, along with assignments in Houston, TX and various locations in NJ.
In retirement he moved to Ponte Vedra Beach and planned his assault on the game of golf. He was always sure that each new swing tip or new club was going to finally produce what he dreamed of. Even if he did not reach his ideal score, he made friendships that lasted his lifetime. He was the proud participant in many golf groups, including Friday golf, the Muchachos, and the Travelers. He was always happy on the course.
A mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 AM Monday August 13 at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Benedict’s Prep, 520 Martin Luther King Blvd., Newark, NJ 07102, or a charity of your choice.
