William M. (Zeke) Aswad of Binghamton, New York, passed away on October 17, 2023. William, known to most as Zeke, was born December 8, 1935 to Anna Juriga and Charles E. Aswad in Johnson City. Zeke was a graduate of North High in 1953 where he was a star basketball, baseball and football player. After graduating he married his high school sweetheart, Mary Louise (Mal) Jones in 1957. Together they had two children, Stephanie and William (Bill). Zeke was employed by IBM and worked as a systems control technician for 38 years. He was a photography enthusiast, known to pop out of the tree on Christmas morning, blinding his kids with the flash in order to get that perfect shot. Once retired you could find Zeke at Genegantslet Golf Club or out on his boat catching enough walleye pike to stock the freezers. Zeke was a skilled softball player, playing on several slow pitch rec leagues over the years. He was a Renaissance man who could do it all and had many talents including teaching himself wood carving and creating his own fishing lures. He much enjoyed fishing trips to Black Lake, meeting friends for coffee and weekly card games. Zeke was a hardworking man and was always there to lend a hand to anyone in need. He was a very loving husband, father, grand and great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Zeke is survived by sisters Esther Aswad of Vestal and Patricia O’Neil of Ravena; adoring daughter Stephanie McCabe of Rockville, MD; devoted son and daughter-in-law Bill and Lisa Aswad of Port Dickinson; three grandchildren, Kait (Chris), Billy (Samantha) and Madison; four great-grandchildren, Madeleine, Taylor, Lindsey and Ryan; and many nieces and nephews. He was loved beyond measure and will be deeply missed. He was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Mary Louise Aswad; brother, Charles Aswad; brother-in-law Thomas O’Neil; and son-in-law, Thomas McCabe.
A joint Celebration of Life for Zeke and Mal will be held on Nov 3rd at 12:00 pm at My Uncle’s Place - 120 E Service Rd, Binghamton. Please sign the guestbook at www.HEFUNERALHOME.com
