SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS;WILL WAS SUCH A NICE PERSON! HE & MARY WERE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE;YOU ALL ARE IN OUR PRAYERS ! LOVE KEN & REBA COOK

My Uncle Will, was my second Dad and one of my family mentors. How blessed I have been over the years knowing and being loved by this man. He has been for me an example on how to live my life, raise my children and be the husband I am today, many mistakes for me along the way but always striving to be a man like him. God bless rest in peace I see you in Church, and I look forward to our time in adoration.

So sorry to learn of Will's passing. He was a great friend to my mom and a warm
and generous soul. Rest well.

What a beautiful example of faith, love and joy you were. Our family looked up to you in so many ways. I'll carry your memory and your example throughout my life. May God look over your daughters and families til you meet again. Give Aunt Mary a hug for me. ❤

Will was the best neighbor we could have asked for. He was always there when someone needed help and always friendly and sociable to everyone. We shall miss him greatly as we do Mary and know they are once again happy to be with each other.

My heart is. heavy from the loss of a dear friend and companion. I will cherish the memories of a generous loving man I have known for over 70 years. My sympathies and prayers are with his wonderful family. God speed Will.

Condolences to the family and we will always remember this great family man. Sorry for your loss.

My prayers and love are with the Buchanan family. Will taught me how to be a base singer in the VIP choir. Mary reintroduced to me on playing Euchre and Dominoes. I loved it when Will would start to sing his Irish Limericks. He knew when I was not myself and immediately perk me up with his stories and song. And he wouldn't stop until he saw a smile on my face. I looked forward to our Thursday Night rehearsals every week knowing that Will will be seating next to me and we would make many...

So sorry for your loss. A special man. It was great to see him at our mom's 90th birthday party in July. I know that meant a lot to her.
