Surrounded by his family, William Leon Springer, 34, of Houston, formerly of Dobbin, passed peacefully into the arms of the Lord on Sunday, February 18, 2018, at his family home in Dobbin, Texas.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated 10:30 am Friday, February 23, 2018, at St. Mary Catholic Church, 8227 County Road 205 at FM 1774 in Plantersville. The rite of committal will follow in St. Mary's Church Cemetery.

Serving as pallbearers will be Chisem Phillips, Santiago Garavito, Adam Housel, Jon Conner, Michael Craig, Patrick Lynch, Kyle Awalt, Chris Cottle and Madison Clark. Born to Jim and Linda Springer on Saturday, May 14, 1983, William was raised with his siblings, Jimmy and Kelsey, on their family farm, which he affectionately called, "Springer Ranch." Growing up, William was a diligent student, talented tennis player and proud member of the Montgomery High School Class of 2001. He attended Baylor University where he became a member of the Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity. He graduated with a degree in Finance in 2005, which led him to an accomplished commercial real estate career in Houston. At the time of his passing, William was serving as Vice President at JLL Valuation and Advisory Services, LLC. A Designated Member of the Appraisal Institute (MAI), William served as an Advisor to Institute candidates and was a member of the Leadership Development and Advisory Council (LDAC) for the Institute. William also made it a personal priority to give back to his community, devoting many hours of his time to the causes he held dear, including currently serving as President of the Board of Directors of the Houston Children's Chorus and as a Board Member of the Fondren Foundation. When he wasn't working or participating in nonprofit activities, you could say William was usually "wheels up," taking as many trips as possible with his family and friends. His love for travel and adventure was typified by his trips to San Diego, Chicago (one of his favorites), New York City, Telluride, Scotland, Spain, Thailand, Vietnam and Germany, just to name a few. He very much enjoyed his blended lifestyle; the perfect mix of country life and city life. He considered himself a diehard inner-looper and foodie and could often be found jamming to his favorite music (notoriously limited to those songs written before the year 2000).

William was an exceptional young man with a big and kind heart, always thinking of others before himself and never meeting a stranger. He is survived by his loving parents, Jim and Linda Springer of Dobbin, Texas, his brother Jimmy Springer and wife, Lacey, of New Braunfels, Texas, his sister, Kelsey Springer of Dobbin, his cherished dog, Duke, and countless lifetime friends. He is preceded in death by his beloved grandparents, Leon and Ann Rosilier of Dobbin, Texas, and his grandfather, James Springer, of Brady, Texas. William was a wonderfully devoted son, brother and friend who will be greatly missed and never forgotten by the many people whose lives he touched during his amazing life.
