I'm very saddened to have just learned of Willie's passing. He and Pat were wonderful neighbors on Term St where they raised their eight children. I remember that Willie, in his spare time, always seemed to be tinkering in his garage on one project or another. I'll never forget that merry-go-round that he had attached a motor to...whew! what a wild ride! Or the Harley rides he would give us up and down Term St that utterly terrified me! But what great memories. May he rest in peace. My heartfelt condolences to his family.
My deepest Condolences go out to the Goin family..He was a Great man I have many memories of my childhood with your family . Your dad always made me feel special my heart. Shall always miss this man.. GOD BLESS YOU ..love always Kelly (Treece) Carpenter
We lost a one-of-a-kind in Willie. He and my own dad shared the same "Naughty" sense of humor. In my current older age, I understand and appreciate that even more. I saw Willie a few months before his passing and he was still handsome and as strong looking as ever. He has left a long legacy with all of his children, grand children, and great-grand children. Peace to you all.
I am sorry for your loss i remember your dad when he worked in dept. 2 with my uncle walt & big tom he was a good union brother and will be missed by all
Sorry we weren't in Michigan for the funeral. Our hearts go out to you. Willie was a great friend and he will be missed by all who knew him. We rode many miles together. Love, George & Janet Shorkey
My deepest sympathy to all Willie,s family, I met Willy and Pat 33 years ago, sent a Xmas card and letter just about every year since. Met three of the daughters at the time Willy was helping my son with a computer now that son is a Sgt.Major in the army, talked to Willy last year on the phone still miss talking to Pat after all these years, never new what a great friendship we made over all the years. Was a pleasure to know your parents, Ardie Leineke
My condolences to the Goin Family. I have rode my Hawg with Willie on Poker Runs. He bought a Harley Sportster from me. I like him & we always enjoyed ourselves when we were on a ride together. Rest In Peace & God Bless!!
