Bill accepted Christ as his personal Savior at an early age at the Springfield Missionary Baptist Church. He attended Carver Elementary and High School. Bill had his own unique way of life and all that met him loved him.
He leaves to cherish his memory, his mother, Cornelia Walker; a brother, Alfred; two sisters, Jearline (Bobby) and Sandra (Charles); a brother-in-law, James (Johnny); nieces, nephews, cousins and all the many friends from the surrounding communities who never forgot to go by Crestpark and visit with Bill.
