Bill Gatti

William "Bill" Gatti

9 July 1923 - 23 May 1948

Despite living only a short life, Bill left an indelible mark on those around him. This is most evident in his younger brother, Emil. Emil was only 12 when Bill was tragically killed in a car accident, but his memories of Bill never faded. He remembers Bill as someone to look up to. Because of the age difference Bill would often keep Emil in line and probably had a lot to do with shaping who Emil became. Bill was proud of being a US Marine and was even present at the historic flag rasing at Iwo Jima.
