Born on Jan. 7, 1942, son of the late Theodore and Marion Hill Evans, Willard worked in demolition and his longtime hobby was woodworking. Whether it was going for ice cream or taking rides to nowhere in particular, he was happy, as long as he was spending time with his family.

He was also preceded in death by two sisters, Betty Fenton and Marion Beavers.
