Willie met and wed his forever love Gloria Jean Carter and from this union, two daughters were born. Willie was a faithful member of Union Grove Baptist Church where he served as the Chairman of the Deacon Board for twenty-two years. He worked at Burlington Industries as a supervisor for thirty-eight years until his retirement. His love for his family and community led him to get involved with community service and development. He was at one time a member of the Green Level Town Council. He was raised to the degree of Master Mason as a member of Allen's Lodge #676 and served his lodge as a Past Master. Spending time with his family was one of his greatest joys. He was formally the family Historian. He loved watching Duke University’s basketball games on television.
