Candy and family, so sorry for your loss. I was shocked to read this on the web. Willie was one of my best buddies in auto shop and post high school. He was the man back then--- hot cars, cruisin the Blvd, Root beer stand, Burger chef, the park, oh yea a few bars too! He loved racin the back roads. Glad I got to see him a few years back --- talked old cars, old friends, great times. I'll cherish that day. R.I.P my friend and God bless

I remember Willard as we run around together while attending New Philadelphia High School. I always remember Willie as having hot muscle cars and he was well known back in the day for what he called doing a super tune on a muscle car. Guys were always after him to tune up their cars. I also remember when Candy and Willie started dating in high school. Those are great days to remember. My deepest condolences to the family of Willard.

Praying for my brothers family and sending my love and sympathy tp each of you. He is going to really be missed. Have been thinking about a lot of things we used to do and things he did to take up for me when we were little. Amid the hurt and loss memories make me smile. In time your memories will make you smile. He will live on as close as your heart. Love you all.
