William 'Bill' James Furiosi Sr., age 63, passed away at 2:40AM on June 6th, 2017 at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, FL. He passed peacefully, with family at his side.

Bill was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, to James and Julia Furiosi, as the younger brother of Aileen Furiosi Howards. He spent the majority of his childhood growing up in Plantation, Florida, and attended Plantation High School and Broward Community College. Shortly before the birth of his first son, James, Bill graduated from the Sunrise Police Academy, ultimately serving for over 15 years as a police officer in Plantation and Sunrise, Florida.
He married his wife, Roianne Sciarra, in April of 1990, and they bore two children, William and Courtney. Bill also became a close father figure to Roianne's son, Jeffrey. The couple shared 27 adventurous years together, and ultimately settled down in Palm Bay, Florida, where they raised their children and developed many interesting hobbies; these hobbies included participation in the Brevard County Airboat Association. Bill enjoyed this affiliation very much, as it allowed him to share his love of mechanics, outdoor adventure, and sport fishing, with everyone he knew.

Bill is survived by his wife, children, and grandchildren, who have been blessed to share their lives with this dedicated, creative, and incredibly stubborn man. He will be missed, especially in times of automotive struggle.

The family welcomes flowers or, if you so choose, donations made to the Wounded Warrior Project www.woundedwarriorproject.org/donate.

A service will be held June 10th at 11:00AM at Brownlie Maxwell Funeral Home in Melbourne, FL. 1010 E. Palmetto Ave. Melbourne, FL 32901.
