15 Jun 1972 — Anniston, AL
Willie's nickname was "Red". I remember being him as being playful and very nice. I was 14 years old when he passed away in 1972, he was only 24. Needless to say, his loss was devastating. Although he was paralized in an auto accident shortly about his release date, he always maintained high spirts and a friendly smile. He was loved by many and shall always be missed.
