Bill was a member of Stevens Chapel Baptist Church. He along with Marie, to whom he was totally devoted, raised their children in a Christian home. He was a very hard-working man and instilled a strong work ethic in his children and was very proud of their accomplishments. He loved his family and held them close and dear to his heart.
Bill was a FORD man and everyone knew it. He was also known for his joke telling and enjoyed a good laugh. Although he believed in hard work, he took time to enjoy traveling and taking trips along with Marie and his family.
Bill’s family loved their father and are so very proud of him and so thankful for his dedication to being the best “Daddy” in the world!
He was a loving husband, daddy, grandpa, brother, and friend. He will be sorely missed but precious memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who know and loved him.
