William had the most gentle soul and biggest heart you could imagine. He was also one of the smartest guys that we ever knew. There was absolutely nothing that he could not fix. He will be greatly missed especially on our trips to the gun and knife shows, the many many flea markets, car shows and just hanging out together. There are not many men out there with his integrity and respect for others . William is in heaven with his mom and dad and will forever be Karen's guardian angel. William will be able to fix anything that God needs . We love you❤️

Karen, I am saddened by your great loss. I could not believe my ears, when I called Faye and she told me that Will had died. He loved to tease me and he always got a good laugh at the crazy things that I said. His sense of humor was so keen. I will miss him and the many times he shared pictures of Austin and Owen. He loved those boys, so very much !!!!!!!!!!! I enjoyed sitting next to him in church and just bugging him a little bit. I know he probably got annoyed with me, at times. Karen, may God protect you and keep you during this time of separation. I loved Will and I feel he knew that !!!!!!!!!!!!!

We knew William when he was a little boy. He was a clone of his father. We were very sad to hear of William's passing.

I met William many years ago , he was a customer where I work. He quickly became a friend and I looked forward to seeing him every Friday. We would joke and pick on each other like we were a brother and sister. I will miss seeing him and I hope he knew how much I truly cared for him. He will be in my thoughts for years to come

What a sad moment it was when I learned from Karen of the passing of William. My memories of Karen and her brother are all from our early childhood as we grew up together. Her family was the greatest of neighbors anyone could ever be. To this day I call them the BNF (Best Neighbor Forever). The three of us road the school bus together everyday for years and ran and played together forever. One of my memories is when I went way too fast on one of their mini bikes as I zoomed down the hill past Reva's beautiful vegetable garden. I scraped myself up pretty well but Reva took me in and fixed me up. William had the coolest items even if I did go too fast riding them. He was a great neighbor and buddy and I will always remember all the years I spent visiting him, Karen and their parents. May peace be with William.
