His infectious personality afforded him many friends both young and old, near and far, those from way back and those he recently met. Will had many passions, namely golf. He was a member of the Dublin Country Club where he could often be found enjoying rounds of golf with friends. He also enjoyed spending time with his precious nephews and nieces. In addition to volunteering as a coach for the Dudley Little league, Will loved hunting and traveling.
