Willard leaves to cherish his memory, several loving children; several loving grandchildren; other family and friends.
Willard worked for many years in the oil drilling industry, where he manned oceanic drilling machinery. In his free time, he enjoyed outdoor activities such as gardening and fishing. Willard also enjoyed taking things apart. He would recover valuable materials, fix items and junk what wasn't able to be used. Willard was handy, and could fix almost anything. When his children were younger, Willard liked to take them fishing. They would come home, clean their catch and have a family fish fry. He will be missed by all those who loved him.
Per the family's wishes, cremation has been chosen and no services will be observed at this time. BURRELL FUNERAL SERVICES is serving the family.
