William was born on September 2, 1950 and passed away on Sunday, October 6, 2019.

William was a resident of Texas at the time of passing.

Will graduated Athens High School in 1969 and spent some years exploring life and higher education in Austin, at The Armadillo, the drag, sailing and attending classes at UT which he considered his University and supported throughout his life, having season basketball tickets and his same Drum seat partner, Brad, for over 25 years.

Will's life and personality were too big for these few simple words but if you were a friend or a stranger Will always let you know who he was, agree or disagree, shocked or delighted, you knew the world had been lifted just a little by his presence.
