Birth: Feb. 23, 1896
Rader
Webster County
Missouri, USA
Death: Nov. 10, 1978
Garden City
Finney County
Kansas, USA

He went by his middle name Willis and was born in Rader, Webster County, Missouri.
Willis served in the U. S. Army during World War 1 and saw action in Europe. Late in life he suffered from emphysema, which he blamed partly on the deadly mustard gas he felt he came in contact with during the war. This lung disease also contributed to his death.
Willis was a stone mason and the foreman of the crew that built the stone wall around the Hillcrest Cemetery at Mullinville, Kansas as well as the stone arch/entrance work in the Fairview Cemetery in Greensburg, Kansas.
Willis also laid the first bricks in the construction of the Warren Hotel in Liberal, Kansas.
(Per Don Mace and Carolyn Fournier, children of Willis Mace and Martha Jane Wheeler.)
