William E. Twigg of Hull, Mass., passed away on Monday, January 30th, 2023. He was 52. He was the loving and extremely devoted son of William F. and Patrice J. Twigg of Hull. William, "Billy" (and also lovingly referred to as "Willy") was born in South Boston and raised in Hull. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his brother Jimmy, sisters Theresa, Debbie, Kathy, Chrissy and Carol, and eighteen nieces, nephews, grand nieces, and grand nephews.
He adored his family. He loved his hometown. He was often seen holding court in and around the Kenberma shopping area. Although the youngest of a very large family, he was perhaps the most notorious, known for his legendary storytelling, one liners, and "Uncle Billy" quotable quotes!
He enjoyed candy and pastries, and not exercising! However, he did take up golf in later years to everyone's surprise. He dealt with struggle and adversity head on and endured years of fighting quiet battles. He found comfort and solace in talking with family, and his friends in various AA groups, including The Anchor.
He was diagnosed and bravely fought Throat Cancer with an absolutely astonishing positive attitude. The endless surgeries, scans, doctor visits, and treatments never weighed him down. He was going to fight and win. Sadly, he succumbed to complications from the disease.
Billy will be cremated with a private family gathering and a Celebration of Life will be planned in June to celebrate his birthday and allow his friends and family to gather.
