He had a big personality. He never met a stranger; he would strike up a conversation with anyone. Willie had many layers and he enjoyed life. His favorite sports were baseball, football and basketball. He loved the Yankees and the Tigers, but the Yankees were his favorite team and he always said that he would visit Yankee stadium one day. He enjoyed watching westerns, old movies, listening to old school music, fishing, spending time with his family and the outdoors. What he enjoyed most of all was spending time with his grandchildren. Willie departed this life on November 19, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents along with his granddaughter, LaJoi. He leaves to cherish his memories: his wife, Vera; his children, Gregory, Kimily, Dexter (Suberina), Marquita, Willie Jr, Tashekia and Devon (Crystal); brother, Edward (Dovie); sisters, Bertha Mae (Roscoe) and Willie Mae, eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, godchildren, and friends.
