90 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK OBITUARY William “Bill” Rendace William (Bill) Rendace passed away suddenly on August 7th. He is survived by his wife, Maureen, and four children (Melissa, Megan, Jillian, and William). Bill grew up in Brooklyn, NY. At age 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Marines and served his country for four years. He moved back home to New York in 1962. He joined the fastener industry in 1972, working for Dependable Fasteners in Port Washington, NY. Bill later started his own rep agency, William Rendace & Associates, Bolton Landing, NY, where he represented many fastener manufacturers including Anchor Bolt & Screw and for the last 21 years, Indux, which he represented until his passing. He also started/ owned Network Rivet & Fastener, St. James, NY. Bill had many professions during his life, including being an inventor. Everyone who knew him was always interested in what he was currently involved in, which always seemed to succeed. Bill’s number-one passion was always sales. He was a real people person, genuine, meticulously organized, and always well received throughout the country. He always said, “Whatever you do in life, you have to be passionate to be successful.” He was true to his word and truly loved life. Bill made many lifelong friends in the fastener industry and had the personality that made it hard not to consider him a friend. Bill was a fixture at fastener conventions for nearly 50. He will be missed deeply.
