2 CORINTHIANS 5:8 “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the lord” William was one of a kind, a beacon from an all but forgotten era. He was a man of determination, wisdom, unwavering faith in the Lord, and whose love for his family was all encompassing. He wasn’t afraid of hard work and after a lifetime of pushing past life’s obstacles he spent his later years doing what he loved. Fishing, hunting, and being stubborn, loving father, grandfather, and great grandfather that everyone knew, loved, and will truly miss.
