He was born in Trenton, New Jersey.
Teresky was a very private person, appreciated and respected by his neighbors, who benefited from his skills as a master builder and fixer. He shared his thoughtful philosophy of life and never stopped searching for its meaning.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Watson, who will remain in the house Bill built over 30 years ago. He is also survived by nephews and nieces and their children in Trenton, and will be fondly remembered by his four stepchildren.
There will be a private celebration of his life when spring comes to the wooded acres he gently developed and greatly enjoyed.
