William was a real family man. He loved his children and grandchildren and all of his family and friends. He was a loving son who called his mother "Sweet Mama" Barbara. He loved to barbecue in the back yard with family and friends and made sure everyone had enough to eat. If he could, he would feed the whole neighborhood with his barbecue and cooking. When William wasn't working or cooking, he enjoyed all sports. He attended many sporting events and loved watching his Chicago Cubs, Indpls. Colts and Kansas City Chiefs. He will be dearly missed by all of his loving family and friends. "When through one man a little more love and goodness, a little more light and truth come into the world-then that man's life has had meaning." Eternal Rest Grant onto him oh Lord and let the Perpetual Light Shine Upon Him."
