Willis, Shadrick Ray* - ERNUL  
ERNUL | Shadrick (Shady) Ray Willis, 82, received his reward in Heaven from his Savior Jesus Christ on May 28. He won the battle over the strokes that had disabled him for the past 12 years. A funeral service will be conducted Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Macedonia FWB Church in Ernul. Burial will follow in the Willis Cemetery in Willis Neck. He lived his entire life in the Ernul community. He was an avid deer hunter and always enjoyed having his own dogs. The thrill of hearing his dogs run the deer made any day perfect. Not only a hunter, he enjoyed baseball. He played the game as long as his body would allow him. Then he watched the games on TV. He was an Atlanta Braves fan, but he would pull for any team except the Yankees. Not to leave out the love and devotion he had for his family. The highlight of his days was when we would all gather together for meals and visits. He was our "supervisor" whenever a project was happening. He made the most important decision in his life when he accepted Jesus as his Savior. He was a member of Macedonia Free Will Baptist Church. He served the Lord as a greeter, usher, and visited the sick whenever he was able to ride in his golf cart. He would witness to others of the love of Jesus and the importance of living their life according to the Bible. He is survived by his virtuous wife of 62 years, Kathleen Worley Willis. They have two daughters, Phyllis Godley (Elwood) and Debbie Taylor (Wayne). Shady always wanted a son and God blessed him with three grandsons, Wesley Taylor (Courtney), Jonathan Taylor (Meredith), and Thomas Godley. He also has a granddaughter, "his baby girl" Melissa Godley, and one great-granddaughter, Kalynn Raye Godley. The family will receive friends at the Macedonia FWB Church Monday from 6 to 8 p.m. Arrangements are by Wilkerson Funeral Home, Vanceboro. Online condolences at www.wilkersonfuneralhome.com.
