He was a member of the CT Homebuilders Association, and owner of Bill-Carr Builders Inc. for over 40 years, during which time he built hundreds of custom homes across Fairfield County. He was a devoted parishioner of St. Joseph's Church of Stratford. Bill enjoyed spending winters with his wife at their home on Sanibel Island. He loved playing golf with his son and grandsons, classic cars, video poker, and playing corn-hole at family gatherings. Above all, he was a devoted, generous and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend who will be truly missed by all who knew him.
In addition to his beloved wife Carol of 55 years, Bill is survived by his adored children, William P. Petrino, Jr. and his wife Lynn of Easton, Laurie Hill and her husband James of Milford, and Leanne Hovhannissian and her husband Marc of Oxford.
