    Willie shared in one of my happiest experiences and made it even better. When I got word that my granddaughters were born a few years ago, I left work early to see the new family in the hospital. Willy was driving. As he took me to the metro I had to...  more

    Our heartfelt condolences on the loss of a dear man. We at the FRB Federal Credit Union will miss his smile, his jaunty cap, and conversations about football and cars. Heaven has gained a new angel who is already zooming around the other angels,...  more

    Willie, I just saw you a few weeks ago, hard to believe that you are gone. You were like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise dreary day. I enjoyed our many talks over the years, riding the shuttle will not be the same. My deepest condolences to your family.
