Willie was a truly wonderful, kind, funny, sweet man. We loved sitting with him, listening to his stories about his life and time in the service. Sending our prayers and condolences to all of the family. Heaven gained a beautiful soul💜

There are far too many to count but the one I cherish the most was around the age of 5 or so when I was obsessed with being a singer. Every time the family would get together grandpa would put down the bed of his truck, they'd gather their chairs around the vehicle and listen to me perform the same Shania Twain song time and time again. My momma, Lori helped me with my stage performance (moves and cute lil cowgirl outfit). They were always so supportive, but my pawpaw was the greatest at encouraging me to pursue what I loved.
