Son, brother, friend, husband, dad, grandpa, ship welder, union member, retiree, nothing other than cheerfully serving God by sharing his disposition of life. The best of Dad by his simple presence, smiling, silent, speaking only important words, and by bringing out the best of you. A talented and accomplished athlete, William loved the comradery and passion of sports that later reflected his friendships and joy of life. He actively excelled first with his four brothers in the neighborhood, at Van Dean Elementary, Stephen White JH and the South-Bay Leagues playing Baseball, Football, Basketball, which began of course at the world-famous Torrance Freeway Little League. At the time it broke Will’s heart when the Downtown Torrance sports shop went away, the legacy of going there in the car, to pick up baseball socks and uniforms he knew, was gone.
Today gleefully surprising us by what he thought were little (huge) gifts. Generous, kind, “Well with his Soul” our Will-Willie-William’s bright spirit and exuberance for life will be terribly missed, always remembered, and honored.
