Joan and family Will was one of the finest men I have ever known. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you remember his sense of humor, and the way he loved his family and friends. Jan Burd

Lori, so good to see you today, my thoughts and prayers will be with you tomorrow as you lay your dad to rest. So thankful for the promise of spending eternity with Jesus, it brings peace during days of uncertainty.

Will was one of the nicest men I have ever known. I worked with him for years at Godwin. He did excellent work for me on my first house which was more than a fixer upper. He was one of my favorite people in the world.
