11/9/1920 – 5/26/2019
On May 26, 2019, Bill, a passionate astronomer, was set free to explore the cosmos. He was surrounded by his loving family in Santa Barbara, California. Bill was born to Sonia and Morris Buzin on Nov. 9, 1920, in Buffalo, New York.
In 1923, Morris and Sonia drove to Los Angeles, California in a Model T Ford with their five children. Bill was preceded in death by his parents, his first wife, Della, and his four siblings (Eddie, Sam, Lillian and Annie).
Bill graduated from Theodore Roosevelt High School and joined the Marine Corps shortly thereafter. He is a veteran of WWII.
He grew to have a passion for carpentry and real-estate. He never missed a solar or lunar eclipse. He loved to travel; he loved animals; he was an avid reader; and he loved to spend time studying science and telling jokes and stories to make everyone around him laugh.
Bill moved his family to Carpinteria, California in 1987.
Bill is survived by three children, Marilyn (Larry), Jay (Jessie) and Rhonda (Matt). He is also survived by his ex-wife, Amanda, their three children, Veronica (Mike), Sonie (Allen), Bernie (Laura), seven grandchildren, Carrie, David, Andrew, Mikey, Mikayla, Arielle, Shimon, and four great grandchildren, Davlyn, Kaleo, Faith and Emma.
