Willard was a husband, father, grandpa, nephew, cousin, uncle, pastor, coach, mentor, and beloved friend to many. He devoted his life to his family, community, and Christ. To those who knew him will remember his strong presence, quest for knowledge, and his gifted athletic ability. Willard spent part of his adult life as a tribal cop, then federal officer, driving long distances between reservations in Northern Nevada. Later, he met and married Barbara and became a stepfather to her five children. Willard took care and raised her children as his own. He played a huge role in shaping his children's lives and celebrated all of their accomplishments with pride. When his grandchildren were born, he was present at each birth, excited and emotional as he cradled them in his arms. In many ways, Willard was a strong, silent and private man. He didn't want anyone to worry about or fuss over him when he got sick. On June 15, 2017, Willard went on to be with the Lord, on his terms, in his bed, at home. We love and will miss him everday. We are asking for donations to put towards his funeral and burial services. His funeral and burial services will be held on June 24, 2017 at 11am at the Hung A Lel Ti Wellness Center & Gym with the burial and dinner following shortly thereafter. Please donate what you can.
