William P. Hurley, 62, passed away in the comfort of his home on February 2, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. He let go of his long battle against cancer with the same faith and hope that allowed him to tackle this journey with such courage and inspiration.

Born in Rahway, NJ to William and Cathleen Hurley, Bill was the seventh of 16 children. He lived and worked in the Hudson Valley for over 40 years. As an Owner, Manager and Maitre’d, he established himself as a welcoming and familiar face in many of the fine restaurants in the area. He built wonderful memories with many over the years while doing what he truly loved; most recently with his friends at the Nic L Inn.

He was an avid Mets fan, loved vacationing in Maine and Cape Cod, and had a passion for wine and food; but his greatest passion, as an amazing Dad, was spending time with his kids. His children are forever grateful for the care and support of the staff at the Dyson Center; especially his NP, Maggie, with whom he developed a great relationship.

He is survived by his children William and Shannon, his former wife Mary and her husband Jeff Weeks, as well as 13 brothers and sisters: Mary, James, Cathleen, Joan, Francis, Robert, Ellen, Jack, Nancy, Peter, Anne, Paul and Eileen. He was pre-deceased by two sisters, Patricia and Marguerite.

Calling hours will be on Friday, Feb 7, 2020, 5-8pm at William G. Miller & Son Funeral Home in Poughkeepsie, with a mass of Christian burial at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 10am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in memory of Bill to: The Foundation for Vassar Brothers Medical Center – Directed to Dyson Center for Cancer Care, 45 Reade Place, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601 or to Hudson Valley Hospice, 374 Violet Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.

I was heartbroken to learn of my friends passing. We went to Franciscan High School together and were always good friends. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his brothers and sisters, his children and their mother, and all who loved him. RIP, my friend, you will be missed.

Sincere Sympathy to Bill and Shannon. Your Dad was so proud of both of you. We watched him through this struggle and I don't think anyone ever fought harder, his faith kept him going. Always a smile on his face and such amazing courage through this long ordeal. He will always be remembered. Rest in Peace Bill

My sympathy goes out to Bill's family. He was a wonderful, caring, neighbor and will be truly missed. I will miss our chats at our mailboxes which were side by side. He was always smiling and always had great stories to tell. RIP Bill.

Shannon and Billy words cannot express my sadness at your dad's passing. He was one of a kind. A very special person and friend. A man of strong faith who accessed it throughout his life journey. He took life seriously with a skip in his step. I know he loved you both so very much. You will both have him forever watching over you. I will always remember his smile and laugh and the twinkle in his eye. Sending giant hugs, Kathy Hamilton (and Gordon)
