Judy & family we are very sorry about Bill's passing. We have known Bill many years & he has always been a great person. I always looked forward to seeing & talking with him at our old men's breakfast when we could still have them. We will keep you in our prayers as you & Bill have been for several years now.

Mr. Bill always had such a warm smile. He gave me a hug every time he saw me. When I was in college, he always asked how my classes were going. I loved being in choir with him and becoming friends. He will definitely be so missed.

I have loved Bill all my life...he was always my favorite cousin. He and I had so many memories! We loved to reminisce about our younger days with Grandma Williams and Flonnie and never ran out of things to talk about when we’d get together. We were looking forward to spending more time with him and Judy since they just moved closer to us.
He was truly a man of God and a wonderful friend, never failing to tell me how much he loved me. He left behind a precious wife and family that will be in our thoughts and prayers. We love you!

Bill Wooten was one of a kind....always with a smile and a hug. I know he will be missed terribly but what joy we know he’s experiencing with our Savior! I have no doubt he is singing praises right now! Prayers for all of you. Love your precious family!

Dear Judy and family: What wonderful Benton Heights memories I have of Bill and his wonderful family growing up together from all the kids in the neighbor gathering at our house at the only street light around and playing games after our chores were done to having sweet Mr. Clegg sing at our wedding. Bill certainly got that beautiful voice from him and I am happy that I knew him and the family.
May Jesus bless and keep each of you in His tender loving care and may your sweet memories be sweet treasures in the coming days.
Much love to all of you and your precious family dear Judy

Judy and family,
I am sad to hear of Bill's passing. I grew up across the street from the Wooten family and have known Bill my entire life. He was a fine example of a good man and treated everyone with such kindness. I know you will all miss him terribly but with certainty, he is with his Heavenly Father and is pain free and singing His praises. You are all in my continued prayers. Wishing you peace and love.

Judy and family,
My heart breaks for all of you. Our lives will be forever affected knowing Bill is not with us, our loss but Heaven’s gain. He was such a smart, wonderful man. He lived his faith in his family, music and kindness. We are all better people having known him. My love and prayers for
God ‘s comfort. I love you all.
