In his youth he enjoyed playing sports, reading sci-fi, dancing and playing trivia. He served in the Vietnam war and was an U.S Army Veteran. Later in life he loved spending time with his wife and stepdaughter, doing puzzles and going on cross-country adventures. William is survived by his wife Rebecca Dickens; stepdaughter Jessica Locklar; and four children: Duna, Robby, Clay and Tony. A memorial service will be held Sat., July 14, at 11 in the morning at A.S. Turner & Sons Funeral Home in Decatur, GA.
