I knew Willie at the Con Agra plant and he was one of the guys I really enjoyed working with.

Uncle Willie was very special to me. I remember how much he loved to hunt. He was a very devoted Dad. Only his flesh body is dead. His spiritual body is very much alive and it is one of a young adult not an old man. We will see him again.

Oh Willie. I will miss you so much. Pushed you down hall to yor room. You had a gruff exterior and a heart of golf

I'm so sorry for your loss! It was such a pleasure, yet some days a challenge, to take care of Pop Willie during my time at Atkins. I have some wonderful memories and will never forget him. He was a heck of a man! Condolences!
