Bill was a member of Lighthouse Pentecostal Church of God in Carey. He was a very hard worker and retired from Porcelain Products in 1995. Bill enjoyed the sunshine, southern gospel and bluegrass music, Pepsi, bologna and watching westerns and “wrastlin.” Every year for Christmas he would give his grandkids a box of oatmeal cream pies, or as they affectionately called them, “papaw pies.” He liked singing “You are my Sunshine” and spoiling his youngest daughter, Kayla. Bill was sentimental, humorous, stubborn and kind to everyone. He loved his kids, grandkids and had a special bond with his niece, Melanie.
His funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 31, at Lighthouse Pentecostal Church of God, Carey. Burial will follow at Spring Grove Cemetery in Carey.
