William Joseph Paraskewich

Nov. 21, 1963 — June 13, 2018

William Joseph Paraskewich, 54, died Wednesday, June 13, 2018, in Steamboat Springs.

He loved life, especially in his hometowns of Wilmington, Delaware; Hana, Maui; and his present hometown of Steamboat Springs. He was more affectionately called Billy P, or added in more recent years, Coolbreeze. He had a passion for the hospitality service, always had a smile on his face, and could make you feel at ease. He was a people person who loved to talk and tell stories, and if he could get you to sit down for a while, he'd show you all his favorite home videos. He loved his family and friends and would spend hours on the phone catching up with everyone. He will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his wife Margot; mother, Catherine Young; daughter, Michelle Kentch (Ryan); granddaughter, Taylor Young; brothers, Jamie Paraskewich (Marlene) and David Paraskewich (Trish); and stepsisters Jessica Bunner (Tyler), Misty Woolston (Bill), and Candice Young.

He was preceded in death by his father, William Paraskewich.

A celebration of life will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 30 at Freshies Restaurant in Steamboat.
