Willy was a true gentleman in every since of the word. He was the life of our parties and our family mascot! Our family dynamics will never be the same. We love you forever and will miss you forever.

Willy was amazing and an asset to all who were privileged to know him, he welcomed friends, family and strangers into his circle of warmth and caring alike, and made you feel welcome, and important. My heart breaks thinking that this lighthouse of love and caring has gone to heaven and leaving all of us behind without him, that hard to pick up and know the world is no longer having him in it. When Willy was around he just fixed and made it right, and it was done with humor and laughter always,......breaks my heart to know Candy and his family are going to be without such an important member of their lives, I can only offer huge prayers and hugs to you all and tell you how very sorry we are we will all miss him dearly .....
