I loved visiting William and Patty at Buxton's. We could pop in and he would always greet us with a warm smile and big hug. He shared a special ruby with John for my engagement ring in 2003 , a sweet memory for me. William was always a handsome gentleman. One of a kind!

William was always such a kind and thoughtful person. We live near where he had Buxton’s Jeweler’s, so he and Pat were involved in several milestones with our youngest son, Seth...his sixteenth birthday watch, a ring when he got engaged after college . Such a lovely, sweet couple. ❤️ Betty Thompson

I have so many great memories of this wonderful man. He was a gentle man with great love for his family and friends. William and I shared a special interest in our favorite food, chocolate, not just any chocolate it had to be Hershey’s. I will miss you sweet man, but I know you are at peace. Until we meet again.

William, our dearest friend for more than 20 years was a prince in life and in passing on to eternal rest with his Savior. Never did he complain in life, nor, during illness , or, during his final days. William always thought of others and even during his final hours William was smiling, sharing with friends about the life he had enjoyed, with his loved ones , friends and, all that he so appreciated about life. As his final hours grew shorter, William was still smiling during those hours as he had great faith, and, was not afraid to meet his Savior, William will be remembered by so very many friends as a thoughtful and loving husband, father, grandfather, good friend to each of us, and, so very much more.... It has been an honor to have been your friend, William. Rest In Peace dear one until we meet again....🙏✝️

Wonderful memories of a treasured friendship of 50 years, but never enough time, we miss you so much, William. A wonderful man of such marvelous character, generous, caring and greatly loved.

William- I am happy that you were able to live your life your way and leave this earthly life in a gentle manner and your choice also. I expect that gives Patty and your daughters comfort in your physical absence. You left behind three wonderful women and other loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And you are reunited with your beloved sons who left this world so young. That must have been a wonderful reunion. Love and watch over those still here as the road of grief is a challenging journey. They are strong women yes- but strength does not ease the pain of saying good bye to you. We love and surround them with the light of our love.

My dear friend William,
In your absence I see how much I will miss your friendship, gentle personality, your humour and your brotherly advice. You are a great loss to me and Corpus Christi won't be the same without you.
Rest well my dear friend until we meet again.
