Willie's obit appears in The Paris News, Paris, Texas, 12 Sep 1960, Page 2.

According to the obit, Willie was a Bogata school bus driver for 11 years. He was so well loved by school children that they dedicated their 1960 annual to him. Willie died of illness at home at age 60. He had been ill since July.

On 16 Aug 1918 Willie married Madge Ladd at Cunningham. Willie and Madge had the following children: Ollie Ruth, Carl Henry, Billie Jean, Royce Allen, and Gerald Edward.

The obit lists the following survivors: his wife; two daughters: Ollie and Billie; three sons, Carl, Royce, and Gerald; six grandchildren; sisters and brothers, Mrs. Davie Collins; Mrs. Louie Evans; Delbert Burns and Edgar Burns, and Tullie Burns.

Willie's funeral servicers were at the Baptist Church in Bogata, where Willie had been a member since 1938. The obit notes that burial was made by Bogata Funeral Home.
