William Alexander Trudeau III

September 1, 1966 – August 10, 2021

Bill Trudeau died August 10, 2021 at Parrish Medical Center, Titusville, FL at the age of 54 due to complications from COVID-19.

Bill was born in Silver Spring, Maryland to William Alexander Trudeau II and Rita (Crabtree) Trudeau. Bill became a Floridian at a young age when his family relocated to the Space Coast.

One cannot hear the story of Bill Trudeau’s life without hearing of grace, compassion and mercy; and he wouldn’t want it any other way.

Bill was a graduate of St. Teresa Catholic School and Titusville High School. His was not a carefree youth. His father was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at a very young age. In the years that followed, he, his brother and dearest friend Lindsay, and his mother Rita exemplified how the strongest rope is made of three cords. Together they were not only a family, but a team; caring for one another. Faith, forgiveness, humor, hope and love sustained them.

On one family trip, it was discovered that ten year old Bill had put all his vacation money in the poor box. When asked, he said someone else needs it more than I do.

Bill was always quick to help. His ever present sense of humor shined through his impish grin and sparkling eyes. You knew when Bill was in the room. His people-sense and a beautiful voice naturally lead him to a career in media, promotion, sales and development. Over the years, he worked in both Orlando and the Titusville area.  Most recently Bill was the Communications Director for the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra and Sales and Account Manager for lead generation company BDC Bandits based in Christmas, Florida.

Bill was an active member of Indian River City United Methodist Church where he loved making music with his brother to give thanks, to praise God and for the enjoyment of others.

Bill is preceded in death by his grandparents, his father William A. Trudeau II and stepfather George H. Hoggard. He is survived by his mother Rita Trudeau, brother, Lindsay Trudeau, his maternal aunts Vicki Crabtree, Dawn (Crabtree) Amundsen, cousins Karen (Amundsen) Killough, Erica (Amundsen) Debes Hartge, Elisa (Amundsen) Gueffier, John Amundsen and their families.

In lieu of flowers Bill would ask that you make a gift to your church, to others in need through a charity that is dear to your heart or to the arts to share beauty with the world.

Life Celebration will be Saturday, November 13th at 11am. Indian River City United Methodist Church in Titusville.

    I knew Bill because we both worked for the Space Coast Symphony. I was the music librarian for the orchestra, when Bill was Director of Communications. We both spent many hours working in the office at the River House. Along with all our respective, never-ending work, we had a lot of fun. Bill had a great sense of humor, and told a good story. We laughed alot, up on the second floor. His podcast(s) with Eric were hilarious. He cared about the symphony, and was always willing to jump in and lend a hand. Bill was a kind, generous, and thoughtful person.....at the ready to bring a cup of coffee, or a can of pop. He lifted alot of bins full of orchestra music up those two flights of stairs for me. I am so saddened by his death. Bill was a good man, and is missed. My sincere sympathy to his family. Peace be with you and your family Bill.

    Bill was the one who brought me back to the fold and showed me God in a different way. When we were dating, he took us to stand in the not-so-nice part of town to hand out bibles as he was determined to help everyone he could feel Gods love.
    He was an amazing person who adored his Mom and Lindsey and was always willing to help. In fact, I met him because his roommate wasn’t home to help me when I called as my car broke down at the local college campus. Here he came to help me..a total stranger. That was Bill and everyone who knew him will miss him as he’s gone from this world way too soon.
    There’s some comfort in knowing he’s looking out for all of us from heaven. And when he’s not busy doing that, I’m sure he’s making some sweet music and bringing a smile to Jesus’ face. We love you Bill and always will. Thank you for the love, laughter and music.

    Bill was wonderful to be with when I would come to visit George and Rita. He was so concerned for all and did what he could to help anyone he could. He will certainly be missed by many. Jane E. Goodman
