I am so very sorry for your loss. Anytime I visited with your dad, we would sit on the porch and talk at length about just about anything. What an intelligent man Uncle Billy was. He will be missed dearly but never forgotten. Hugs and prayers being sent your way during this difficult time!

I have many memories of Mr. Brown from childhood. He would take William and I fishing, to the movies, and what ever else we could talk him into. I spent a lot of time at their house as a kid. We are going to miss him.

I have too many memories of my father in law but I will share one of my favorites. When my children were younger and he would visit at Christmas, they would have epic Nerf gun battles in the house because it was usually raining outside or too cold. I was always so tickled by how much he enjoyed chasing and hiding from the kids with the Nerf guns. There would be bullets everywhere like in the Christmas tree, stuck to the dog, on the wall, behind the couch.... I would find them months later but Bill and the kids loved it! He was a wonderful, kind man, loving father and grandpa. He will be deeply missed. ❤️

The earliest memory of my dear cousin Billy was at Granny’s when i was maybe 4-5yo and Billy was dove hunting with Marvin, i was their bird dog retriever, going and getting the doves they had shot! I grew tired of getting the doves, over the fence and in the bushes. I wanted to shoot their gun. They kept telling me no, no, no, with persistence, Marvin let me shoot his gun while helping me hold the gun. After i pulled the trigger and was blown back about 10 feet on the ground, Marvin laughed, but Billy picked me up, dusted me off and told me maybe you ought not shoot the gun anymore! I was happy to go get their doves after that! he was always so kind and a very pleasant man! i will truly miss you Billy! Happy Hunting in Heaven! Mark
