HACKENSACK, N.J. -- William Raymond Dunleavy, of Hackensack, died on Monday, Jan. 9. He was 91.
He was born in July 1925 to James Dunleavy, a police officer, and his wife Florence, who lived in Jamaica, Queens, NY. William met his wife of 56 years, Viola Schwebinski of the Bronx, while they were both working in Manhattan. The newlyweds moved to Levittown on Long Island. The couple soon moved to Syosset.
He went to work as a Purchasing Agent for Volkswagen of America in Englewood Cliffs in the mid-1960's and the family relocated, first living in New Milford, and then buying a house in Oradell. After their children grew up and moved out, they moved to Atlantic City. They returned to northern New Jersey 12 years ago and settled in Hackensack.
He is survived by his three children James (Ann), Maryann and Jane Marie.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Viola.
