In 1997 he married the love of his life Miriam and they were blessed with three beautiful children. Hannah, William VI, and Manson.

The most important thing to William was his faith, even as a teenager he was nicknamed “preacher man” and he was never ashamed to share the gospel with anyone. He served in many capacities over the years in ministry including Sunday school teacher, youth pastor, lay minister, church bus driver, evangelism director, altar prayer, usher, deacon and the list goes on and on!

William is survived by his wife of 25 years Miriam, children Hannah, William, and Manson. His fur baby Bella. Mother Eugertha Walker, Sister Charvette Walker. Father and Mother in law Dennis and Edna Williams. Sisters in law Tabitha, Zillah, and Myra. Brother in law Manson. William also leaves behind a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.

William also treasured his New Heights Church family, Serendipity Life Group, and his AGI and USU coworkers.
