    I was sorry to hear of the passing of Jr. Willard. He was a great guy and friend. We played a lot of baseball together when we were young. He always like to throw his knuckle-curve. A good pitch and he threw it well. He was a good ballplayer. He also helped my when my mother was ill by helping us sell her vehicle. I will always appreciate his kindness. To all the family, you are in my prayers. God bless you all.

    Jason, Tracy and Family,
    So sorry to hear of Jr.’s passing. I started thinking back to my early childhood and living next door to you all. I vaguely remember your dad helping my parents carry our swingset up the middle of the road from 419 Monks to 508 Monks. I remember he was an avid fisherman and loved the St. Louis Cardinals. My thoughts and prayers are with Jr.’s entire family.

    Junior was the best brother-in-law for so many reasons. First, he loved my sister Mia and always supported her creative projects. From the day they married, he opened his home to all the relatives for
    reunions, holiday get togethers, or any other occasion. Junior has always been kind, thoughtful, and giving. He was non judgmental and had a beautiful spirit. I will miss you Junior, and feel joy when I think about you.

    My thoughts and prayers for Jr’s family. Some of my best memories of my years in West Plains are of the Willards- Ed, Vibert, Jr and Denny. Quail hunting and hanging out and visiting at the car lot was memorable. Jr and I had several good hunting and fishing experiences. The last time I saw Jr at the 58/59 reunion, I reminded him of a quail hunt in Rover where we killed 5 birds on the covey rise and of a fishing trip where he had a LARGE bass to the boat and I missed it trying to net it and the fish came off. I don’t recall him being happy about that. Jr was a good friend and he will be missed. Farewell old friend.
    May God comfort all his family and friends.
