  1. As a Union Carbide electrician I worked for Willie for many years. He was a good boss and friend who often times let his funny side show. He had lots of stories from the days when he worked with his tools, and the name “Lite Finger Louie” was usually one of the characters in his tales. I know he will be sorely missed by family and friends. May God bless and keep his family during this time of mourning.

  2. Sorry for your loss Randy. Thinking and praying for you Russell and Mike during this time. Take care. Bobby

  3. We will miss passing Willie on the road, seeing and talking to him at the corner store. We loved talking to Willie. He will be greatly missed. He loved talking about his children and grandchildren, he was very proud of his family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
