Lynn, George Willis -

Hillsboro - To know Daddy was to love him. Dad was a kind and gentle soul. He wore many hats: a protector and a provider to his family, chauffeur in my early years, a short order cook to his grandbabies, a caregiver to many, a teacher to who would sit and listen, a brother, an uncle, a husband of 53 years to his bride (Momma), and a daddy to me and Brad. Most importantly, daddy was a role model. He was not selfish. He thought of others before himself. Dr James Dobson once said, “A good father will leave his imprint on his daughter for the rest of her life.”
Daddy has left an imprint on more lives than just me. If you knew him, you loved him.
