Bill was born March 6, 1922 a son of John William and Delphine Paviol Marcon. He grew up with his parents and two older sisters, Lena and Alice, in Canaan, Connecticut. He graduated from Housatonic Valley Regional High School, president of the class of 1940 and was honored when the school asked him to speak at commencement ceremonies 50 years later. After graduation he left for Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY where he earned his degree in Civil Engineering. College was interrupted by World War II. Bill enlisted in the US Air Force and proudly served as a navigator on B29s in the Pacific. After returning from his military service and finishing his education he married his high school sweetheart Eve Consolini. He worked for Standard Oil in Texas and for the State of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg before settling in Yorktown Heights, NY where Bill became the youngest Town Engineer in Westchester County. Together Bill and Eve raised their daughter, Linda and lived a life full of joy, dining and dancing. Bill continued his professional career as a civil engineer, establishing his own consulting office in Yorktown Heights, NY working in the areas of municipal engineering, water supply and land development eventually establishing William A. Marcon Associates with his son-in-law Tom. He served as the oldest Town Engineer in Westchester County for the Town of Somers, NY. He was a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, National Society of Professional Engineers and American Water Works Association as well as Rotary International. Bill was overwhelmed when Eve died in 1967. Amazingly he met Lucille Wolf and they were married in 1969.

Lucille died in 1976 and he once again found love and was married to Margaret Owens in 1977.

Bill was an accomplished golfer and was proud when he shot his age at 80. They moved to Valley Terrace in 2013 where Marge died in 2016. Bill met Charlotte Yoder and spent three wonderful years together laughing, watching the birds and enjoying local music concerts. Often after dinner, he would entertain fellow residents while taking requests at the grand piano. Bill was musically gifted. If he could hum it he could play it on the piano, banjo or mandolin. He spoke French and Italian and enjoyed skiing and riding his Harley Davidson. His positive outlook on life inspired everyone he met. Bill encouraged everyone to enjoy life to the fullest.
