Bill was born on July 3, 1938 in Greece, N.Y. the son of the late Lyle S. and Elizabeth E. (Small) Owen.

He then opened "Mr. Piano" in Newark in October 1989 until his retirement in April 2011. Bill enjoyed hunting and fishing. He was a true family man. He was a pillar of the community; giving back at any opportunity he could. One example is he employed those who may just need a second chance.

He is survived by his loving, supporting, co-worker and best friend, his wife, Patricia; his son, James; brothers Harlan (Aileen) and David (Carol) Owen; a sister, Beverly Owen; a sister-in-law, Carmella; several nieces, nephews and cousins.
