William G. "Bill" Temple, Jr., 92, went to be with his Lord and Savior on January 25, 2012, surrounded by his family. He was born May 12, 1919 in Portsmouth, VA, the son of the late William Grimes Temple and Alice Virginia Hudgins Temple. He resided with his family in Coleman Place in Norfolk and was a graduate of Norview High School Class of 1937. In 1939 he joined the Army Air Corps. His first duty station was Wheeler Field in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was there on December 7, 1941 that the attack on Pearl Harbor occurred. Among many of his accomplishments was the fact that he was a Pearl Harbor Survivor and was able to participate in the 70th anniversary last month. He was the state chairman of the Pearl Harbor Survivors and Vice president of the Tidewater area chapter. He was retired from Bayside Hospital. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his loving wife, Elizabeth Bunch Temple; son, William G. Temple III; and brother, James Earl Temple. He was a faithful long time member of Calvary Temple Church and loved the Lord with all of his heart and soul. Left to cherish his memories are his sister, Alice Temple McGee and husband Phil; brother, Richard B. Temple and wife Virginia; sister-in-law, Claudia Temple; and stepson, Gene Royal. He is also survived by many other relatives and close friends. There will be a celebration of his life Saturday, 11 a.m., January 28, 2012, at Calvary Temple Church, 5639 Brickell Road, Norfolk, VA with Pastor Chris Amos and Pastor Dave Libengood officiating.
