William G. Anagnos, 60, a lifelong Red Hook resident, has performed his last stunt by rolling one into the Gates of Heaven. Bill passed on Tuesday, January 15th, 2019 after a long fought battle with cancer.

Born on August 19th, 1958, in Rhinebeck, NY, he was the son of Jeanette (Lampariello) Anagnos of Red Hook and the late William H. Anagnos. Bill is a graduate of the Red Hook Central Schools.

At the age of 16, Bill toured with the "Joey Chitwood Thrill Show", as a motorcycle stunt rider.

Bill broke into the motion picture industry in 1976- doubling for John Travolta in "Saturday Night Fever". He appeared in hundreds of movies, commercials, and TV shows; doubling for and working with prominent actors and actresses, such as; Paul Newman, Patrick Swayze, Robin Williams, Robert Downey Jr., Farah Fawcett, Angelina Jolie and many more. Bill made his mark in the stunt world, and was known to all as the "Wheelman of the East Coast". There was not a vehicle he could not drive, wreck or rollover. He was a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild.

Locally, Bill developed, owned, and operated a bulk water facility in Red Hook called Cokertown Springs. Bill was a talented mechanic and fabricator. He could build or fix just about anything.

Along with his mechanical talents, all will miss his kindness, compassion and humble demeanor.

He was an amazing man, father, son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. In addition to his loving Mother, Jeanette; his is survived by his two loving children, Nicole Kristine Anagnos, and William John Anagnos both of Albany, NY; his brother and sister in law, Jeffrey and Maryellen "Gidget" Anagnos and their two sons, Samuel and William D. Anagnos all of Red Hook; along with extended family, and countless friends and colleagues.

The Anagnos family cannot thank all of Bill's friends- and you know who you are- that stood by his side. Our gratitude is with you all! This world has lost an amazing man and he will truly be missed, but never forgotten. A longer life was the one and only stunt Bill could not accomplishbut he sure gave it his all.
