Willy J. Goor

March 15, 1935 ~ May 29, 2021 (age 86)


Willy was born on March 15, 1935 in Antwerp, Belgium and passed away on May 29, 2021. He was a man of deep principles, the highest integrity and a champion of "live and let live." He earned his pilot's license, a life-long dream of his and he traveled the world many times. He loved animals (more than most people), loved nature and loved his family. His passing is a monumental loss for his wife, Elizabeth Krongold Goor. But her promise to him was to go on living, enjoy life and to always remember how deeply she was loved.  Willy was predeceased by his parents, Maurice and Alida (Nyssen) Goor and by his sister, Lisette van Vaerenbergh. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, his mother-in-law, Lili Krongold and his sister Christiane Bams of Bandol, France.  He is also survived by a niece in Keerbergen, Belgium, Linda Goris and a nephew, Michel Bams of Paris, France.

Funeral services and burial will be private.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the S.R. Avery Funeral Home, 3A Bank St. Hope Valley, RI
