William "Bill" Hix, age 72, passed peacefully in his sleep to join his wife of 50 years in Heaven, on Wednesday, January 3.

A lifelong resident of the tri-county area, Bill graduated from Robert E Lee High School in 1963 before beginning his 40-year career as a highway engineer with the Alabama Department of Transportation. His love of life included his passions for playing softball, riding motorcycles, playing bass guitar, bowling, and SEC sports among many others. His devotion to his family, especially his wife Linda and "his girls," daughter Stephanie and granddaughters Hayden and Keely will forever be his legacy.

Bill was preceded in death by his wife, Linda (Phelps), and his parents, William Edgar and Voncile (Stubbs) Hix. He is survived by his daughter, Stephanie Randall (Bo); granddaughters, Hayden Gambacurta and Keely Randall; his sister, Patsy Ling (Jack); and nephews, John Ling and Greg Ling (Jessica); mother-in-law, Dorothy Phelps; and sister-in-law, Debbie Whitehouse (Paul Harper).

Remembrance services for Bill will be held at Leak Memory Chapel on Wednesday, January 10. Visitation will be at 1:00pm and his funeral will be at 2:00pm. Graveside service will follow at Greenwood Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Jack Ling, John Ling, Greg Ling, Paul Harper, Dr. Frank Randall, and Bo Randall with Reverend Art Long presiding.
