William “Bill” Zukowsky, 82, of Rumson, formerly of Long Valley, NJ and Leland, NC, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family, on Friday, April 1, 2022, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

Bill was born in Kearny, NJ to William and Catherine Zukowsky. He entered the United States Army in 1962 and continued his military service with the National Guard.
