Willie was an avid Ole Miss fan who played college football at The University of Mississippi alongside his brother in the late 1950’s. He was from very humble beginnings and became a very successful investment banker who was responsible for many young professionals successes. He was a leader, a coach, an educator and a good listener. He loved to often reminisce about his high school years at Trezevant High School (Trezevent, TN), his glory days at Ole Miss, Whitehaven Country Club and raising his children. He was an avid golfer and a great card player. For those that knew him well loved him - and knew what he stood for. He loved his family and he forever loved his high school sweet heart Peggy. He will be missed but is now at peace. I love you daddy.
