Bill Gosnell
March 31, 1944 - October 25, 2017
Myrtle Beach

William "Bill" or "Billy" John Gosnell, 73, devoted husband, father and grandfather passed away Wednesday, October 25th at his home surrounded by his family.

Bill was born March 31, 1944 in Walterboro, SC, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. L.E. Gosnell and raised in Conway, SC. He was pre-deceased by a sister, Patricia Russell and brother, Larry Gosnell.

He graduated from Conway High School, attended Wofford College and went on to play minor league baseball for the Phillies. He retired after more than 30 years of service from AVX Corporation.

He has been called "Conway's best athlete" by some, but his real legend lies in the many who refer to him as "the best man I've ever known". He was a man of great character and integrity whose love will live on infinitely in his family and friends who he loved unconditionally.

In addition to his family and friends, he loved fishing, golf, the Gamecocks, bragging about beating his grandsons in basketball, loving on his granddaughters, filling up his garage with random things to fix "one day", doing things in his own time and in his own way, and random acts of kindness.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Judi; his daughters, Trina Cornelison and Jennifer Trowbridge (Jack); grandsons, Quinten and Ethan Cornelison; granddaughters, Emiline and Addison Trowbridge; sister, Aurie Richardson; sister-in-law, Connie Gosnell and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM, Sunday, October 29, 2017 at McMillan-Small Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Hillcrest Cemetery in Conway, SC.
