William Rainaud

On the evening of April 26, 2015, William (Bill) Rainaud, age 87, died at his home after a lengthy illness.

He was predeceased by his wife, Margaret, in 2007.

Surviving are his son, Bill, and wife Barbara; his grandson, Bill, and wife Lorraine; his granddaughter, Victoria; and his longtime partner, Nancy Mac Neill.

William worked for many years as a New Jersey State Park Ranger at Monmouth Battlefield State Park, Manalapan.

He was a member of the Police Benevolent Association No. 222 and the New Jersey Law Enforcement Supervisors Association before retirement, and of the Battlefield Restoration and Archaeological Volunteer Organization.

William was a car enthusiast and mechanical whiz with motors. His quiet smile and teasing talk will be missed by those who knew him.

William was buried in his family plot on April 30 at Old Tennent Cemetery, Manalapan.
