.William C. (Bill) Carberry, 83, died peacefully after a short illness on May 11, 2011. Bill was the son of Marion Cleveland and Joseph Carberry of East Walpole, MA. He is preceded in death by his two sisters, six brothers and beloved grandson Kai Brouck Hasenstab.

Bill was a proud World War II Veteran and served active duty in the Korean War where he was captured as a Paratrooper and escaped from a POW camp. He was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 2578.

Bill was an exceptional builder, carpenter and painter who retired after running his own Home Improvement and Condo Maintenance business for many years on Cape Cod. Building and renovating houses was his hobby and he was very proud of the completely self-built house he owned in St. Johnsbury, VT. He was an avid Boston sports fan and especially loved watching the Red Sox play. He adored the many cats he adopted over the years. He was partial to black cats but also loved his calico cat, Dodger. Bill enjoyed living on the Cape since 1973. He enjoyed traveling with his wife to visit his children wherever they settled, especially Vermont, Maine and out West. He spent the past four years wintering on Hilton Head since the birth of his twin grandchildren.

"Big Bad Bill" is survived by his wife of over 35 years, Marilyn (Fitzgerald) Carberry: his three children Patty Patenaude, Diane Layton and Robert Carberry of Vermont; six step-children, Marilyn (Terry) Harquail of West Yarmouth, Colleen Cacchiotti of Melrose, Kathleen (Tedi) Gillespie of Grand Juncton, CO, Richard Doucette of Charlestown, Elizabeth Doucette of Moneta, VA and Denise Doucette Friday of Hilton Head, SC. He is also survived by and received great joy from many of his 13 grand children and several great-grand-children. He was adored by his many survivors and will be missed dearly.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2011 at Doane, Beal and Ames Funeral Home in Hyannis at 8:30 am followed by a 10:00 am memorial mass at St. Francis Catholic Church in Hyannis. Mr. Carberry will be interned in a private ceremony on Monday, May 16th at Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne, MA. Friends and supporters are welcome to the visitation and Mass.
