AUBURN, Mass. - William A. Kustra, 88, of Auburn, died peacefully on Friday, Oct. 12, 2012 at the Life Care Center of Auburn.
Bill was born in Detroit, MI, the only son of the late Walter and Amanda (Charron) Kustra. He moved with his parents to Worcester when he was a teenager, and lived there many years before moving to Auburn.
Bill proudly served his country during World War II, as a member of the US Army. Following his discharge, Bill worked for 30 years as a civilian worker at Fort Devens until his retirement in 1984. Following his retirement, Bill worked for the former Copeland’s Gas Station in Auburn, and then as a front end worker at Shaw’s Market in Auburn. Faith was so important to Bill. He was a faithful communicant of Saint Joseph’s Parish in Auburn, where he attended daily Mass, served as the daily altar server and sacristan. His many friends from the church became his family.
To celebrate and honor Bill, friends are invited to attend a funeral Mass on Wednesday, Oct. 17th 10:30 am in Saint Joseph’s Church, 189 Oxford Street North, Auburn. Burial will follow in Notre Dame Cemetery, Worcester. There are no visiting hours.
