Survived by his son William Ferlich. Dear brother to Dennis (Mary Kirkland) Ferlich. Loving uncle to Justin Ferlich and Melanie (Eric) Hartzog.

William went to Trinity High School and graduated from Penn State University in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering.

He started his career in Washington DC working as a project engineer overseeing construction of various portions of the subway in the 1970s. He moved back to Pittsburgh and continued his work in construction of bridges and roadways, continually moving up the ranks into more responsible management positions. When his son was young, he enjoyed spending time with him assisting with coaching soccer, hockey, baseball, and BMX racing. He also enjoyed his family, pets, cooking, and watching sports, especially Penn State football. William will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
