Growing up he was an active member in the youth group from First Baptist Church in Galveston.  Recently he was able to attend the best youth reunion last October after recovering from a long hospital stay and was so happy to be there for the reunion. He was proudly a member of the Electrical brotherhood, IBEW 479 who were also his family.

William had a love for life and people.  No job was too small nor too big.  The gentle giant had a heart of gold and filled with God's love and kindness.  He also had a heart for sweets and eats!  He will be missed by so many.  He was loved by so many.
