Born in Acushnet, he was the son of the late William Sr. and Rhonda E. (Hodgekinson) Correira. He lived in this area all his life.
He was a Marine Corps veteran, serving two years during the Korean conflict.
A 1949 graduate of New Bedford Vocational School, he was a talented carpenter. He built his own home and always took pride in his workmanship. He enjoyed a challenge in building and repairs for his many longtime customers.
For many years, he was an active member of Grace Episcopal Church and the Twenty-Thirty Club, and was an avid worker on church suppers, rummage sales and minstrel shows. His expertise in carpentry was much appreciated by his church peers.
Survivors include his widow; a son; a daughter; a brother, Robert of New Bedford; and four grandchildren.
He was the father of the late Kenneth Correira, brother of the late Florence M. Wilbur, and grandfather of the late Bethany Correira.
