Bill W. Cravens, age 74, passed away on October 29, 2012. Bill was born January 2, 1938, in Chicora, Mississippi to Morgan and Lillie (West) Cravens.
A man of perseverance, he loved people of all walks and he loved life. Our dad was always ready to give a word of wisdom or advice. He had many friends and was always there to meet their needs. One of his favorite things was "strap on the feed bag" which means, help others in need. He taught us well in that manner. He was a friend, leader, tradesmen, and most of all, a giver. Our father will be well missed.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his loving daughter, Sharon (Gary) Jording and her children Gabriel Goodremont and Tristan (Nick) Jakab; daughter, Susan (Rodney) Nearhood; son, Robert Cravens and his family, and Bill's daughter, Jodie and her family; sisters, Edith Erhart, Betty England, Mary Foster, and brothers, John and Donnie Cravens. We would also like to recognize Nora and Kirt Pylant, and Paul and Mathew Kuhn. They were also very dear to our father.
