    I am so saddened by Willard’s passing. He and my Dad were great friends. Had fond memories of Willard visiting my dad in Anchorage during our time there. And yes, we had a football rival going on between UT and A&M. God speed, Willard. You were a good man.

    Wow! Willard made it to 100. Aren’t too many who can make this claim.

    I first met Willard when he was one of three engineers who came over to Goodyear when DuPont shut down their Port Neches Isoprene plant in the early 80’s. Willard was originally assigned to the Engineering department where he and I worked together.

    One of Willard’s first assignments was to maintain the shuttered Isoprene plant. He accomplished this through periodic visits to the site where he would manually turn some pieces of rotating equipment and generally just see that any noticeable problems get taken care of. He invited me along on one of these visits. It was clear that Willard was very knowledgeable as well as very proud of that old plant.

    Willard was also very proud of his role as an Aggie. At that point in my life I was unaware of the Bonfire, and Willard saw it as his job to rectify this short-coming in my education along with all other things Texas A&M.

    I really enjoyed my association with Willard and am sorry for his loss. I know he will be missed by all his friends and family.

    Have so many fond memories of Uncle Willard. He and daddy would spend hours in our garage working on their boats. They loved the water and their boats. He used to babysit Pat and me when our parents would go out to dinner and he was the photographer at my wedding….did a great job for an amateur!
    He was a true Aggie and was very successful in his career.
    He had a very exciting life and had many friends. ❤️
