William M. (“Bucksie”) Kenerson died on Nov. 24 in his hometown of Hull. He was 68. His battle with serious medical issues in recent months showed his courage in facing life challenges with a smile.
He was the beloved husband of Julie (Clancy) Kenerson, of Hull, with whom he shared 45 loving years of marriage. He was the devoted father of Sean and Kelly Kenerson, of Hull; Timothy and Laura Kenerson, of Marshfield; and Robert Kenerson, of Hull. He was Papa Bucks to William, Charles, Samuel, Joseph, Maxwell, Theodore, Christina, and George Kenerson.
He is also survived by his siblings, Drs. John and Lisbet Kenerson, of Hampton, Va.; Paul and Lainey Kenerson, of Wenham; Thomas and Hirity Kenerson, of Manor, Texas; Marie Kenerson, of Sanibel, Fla.; Carol Wilson, of Brighton; and Dr. Kevin and LuAnn Kenerson of Yarmouth, Maine. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends. He was predeceased by his brother, Brian Kenerson, who is survived by Kathy Kenerson, of Aptos, Calif.
Bill was born on July 17, 1953, to the late John and Marie (Parkes) Kenerson and was raised in the Allerton Hill area of Hull. He grew up with a large extended family and many lifelong friends. He often spoke fondly of his close-knit family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.
Bill met the love of his life, Julie Clancy, whom he married in 1976. They spent the next 30 years in the Wollaston area of Quincy, where they enjoyed raising their three boys and making lifelong memories.
Bill was a proud graduate of Boston College High School, class of 1971, and Bridgeton Academy in Maine. He was a 35-year member of Teamsters Local 25 as a mechanic at Stop & Shop. He was a lifelong member of the Hull and Quincy yacht clubs and a member of the Nantasket Beach Salt Water and Hull Lions Clubs.
A Mass of Christian Burial was to be held on Thursday, Dec. 2, at 10:30 a.m., at St. Mary of Assumption Parish, Hull. Services were to conclude at Hull Village Cemetery.
Bill will be missed dearly, but we will think of him fondly when enjoying some of his favorite things: sailing in the bay, a game of cribbage on the front porch of the cottage, or watching one of his favorite Hallmark movies.
Love you, Bucks.
