Will was the epitome "teddy bear of a tuff guy". He had a huge heart and an even bigger personality. In recent years, Will had moved from New Orleans to San Diego where he started a moving company. While in San Diego, he empathized in the plight of the homeless. Will provided diapers, food, and other goods for the downtrodden people he came across. He even went so far as to provide jobs for some of the people he encountered as movers for his business. Will became a source of wisdom for his friends when needed. He always had something positive and motivating to say when someone was down or in trouble. He enjoyed spending time with friends and family and was a wonderful uncle to his nephew Dayton. Will had an immense love of body building and personal fitness in which he excelled. His family shared in his passion and often helped him prepare for competitions, all the while cheering him on.
