Will’s hobbies were cutting trees down with his friend Shawn, working on his truck, spending time with his dogs Bohdi and Baylee, traveling and spending time with his girlfriend Trenity.
The family wrote, “Will was an old soul who left us before his time was due. He was a hard worker and shared what he earned.”

“Will had a big heart and was always willing to help. Will loved his family and friends. He always made us smile”

“Every time he talked about his interests, he had this look in his eyes and a contagious smile that made you realize how passionate he was when something interested him”
