Willie was loved by me, my wife, my kids and all of our colleagues. I never met anyone that didn’t like Willie or didn’t have a fond if not hilarious memory of him. The kindest, funniest, most hard working, diligent and loyal colleague - never mind amazing friend - I ever had. He will be much missed by his close and extended family of whom my thoughts are with now and in the future.
We all had the pleasure of knowing Willie and I can honestly say that I am the better person for it. Willie influenced and motivated so many people and he had an appetite for getting things done that I have never seen on such a scale.
I’ll miss him forever as will all his friends and family. We love you big guy.
