William Cummings, 83, of Venice, FL, and Pearl River, NY, formerly of Northvale, NJ, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 26, 2020. Devoted and beloved husband (49 years) of Christine (nee McGoey). Loving father of Jeannine and David Deramo and children, Ava, Kaitlyn and Ella; Justin and Siobhan Cummings and children Neave and Brendan; Kevin and Eugenia Cummings, Gerard Cummings and Lucy and children Keri-Ann and Jarrett; and Karen Kammen and children Marissa (Ravi), Rachel, Tyler and Kaylee (Andrew).

Bill was a proud USMC veteran. He owned and operated Group II Photography & Video and worked many years for the NFL and NY Football Giants. In addition to photographing over 35 Super Bowls, Bill’s work also included hundreds of local weddings and he was intimately involved in filming and producing the NVOT Senior Video Yearbooks and Proms. He was a devoted parishioner and active volunteer at St. Anthony’s parish, helping to install audio/video for the church. In addition, he loved traveling to Ireland, researching his genealogy and playing golf. Most of all, Bill treasured time with his wife and family – and ever the consummate photographer – capturing the joy of his grandchildren. 

Bill served as dedicated President of the Casa Di Amici Condo Association for over 13 years and was a longstanding Board Member of the Venetia Master Association in Venice, FL, where he leaves an impressive legacy.

  1. Al and June Hynes

    I am very sad to hear that Bill has passed. He and Chris have been friends of ours for over 50 years. He was a very loyal friend who we have always enjoyed being with. Bill and I officiated high school football games together starting in 1968.
    He was very compassionate as an official and was a pleasure to be in a game with.
    June and I are going to miss Bill. God Speed Bill,

  2. What a fun loving wonderful guy. So many great memories. Wimbley Stadium – London – Aug of 1992, 49ers against Redskins.
    You got me a photographer’s bib, gave me a your camera and got me onto the field for the game – Then there was the NFL reception at the US Embassy, Hyde Park – you and Chris got me in there too. And can’t forget Atlanta – Super Bowl 1994 weekend. Breakfast on Kodak Film. Super Bowl party – 3 of us, 2 tickets, as we rushed the 4 little guys collecting tickets – about 500 people rushing the four escalators. And of course the presence of both of you at my retirement and all the great pictures you took. Thanks!!! Rest in Peace, Well done Good and Faithful Servant, Mission completed. Semper Fi,
    Joe and Kelly Wallroth
