His family moved to Victorville in 1942, where heattended Victor Elementary School. At age 17, Willie contracted polio and spent several weeks in the hospital. He recovered enough to return to school, and received his diploma in a wheelchair. After high school, Willie received an internship at McDonnell-Douglas in Long Beach, where he participated in a program designed to enable adults with disabilities to pursue careers in the aviation industry. After one year, he was employed by General Dynamics, where he began to learn drafting and design. He eventually moved back to Victorville with his family and opened his own company, Victor Valley Design and Drafting. He designed several buildings throughout the Victor Valley, including the Bud Mac building in Apple Valley and Victor Valley Mortuary, and too many homes to be counted.

Special thanks go to his son-in-law, Ed Correia, for the extra care and loving attention he gave in taking care of Willie in his final days. Willie was one of the most optimistic, tenacious people you could ever know. His many healthproblems through the course of his life gave him a determination that is matchless. He used them as a catalyst to move forward and attain his goals. He had an incredible sense of humor, and he never complained. He always had a twinkle in his eye and a funny story to tell.
