Will was the guy that would do anything for anybody. He was a great person, wonderful brother, fun loving uncle and a great friend. Some of the fondest memories from his nieces and nephews were the times he took them to Short’s for ice cream. Will enjoyed telling jokes and liked to pull your leg with his tall tales. He enjoyed a good game of Euchre with his Euchre buddies and hanging out with his dog, Tucker.
