Both parents were natives of Poland. The family soon moved to New Britain, Connecticut where his father worked for Stanley Tool Company. However, by 1940, Alexander was working for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) reporting a 1939 income of $560 and paying $16 a month rent for a home at 36 Gold Street in New Britain (at which the family would live for several more years). In that year, William was working at the Stanley works as a buffer and reporting a 1939 income of $1460.William married Branka A. Kaminski.

After entering the service and completing basic training, William was sent to the European theater. He was transferred from the replacement depot to L Company 116th Infantry on 27 Oct 1944. PFC Niedzwiecki was killed in action on 27 Feb 1945.

PFC Niedzwiecki rests forever in the Netherlands American Cemetery.

Brother, Stanley William Niedzwiecki, served in the U.S. Army during WW2.
