Stewart Gregory “Greg” Willis
Stewart Gregory “Greg” Willis, age 59, Russellville, passed away suddenly April 30 at Russellville Hospital.
Greg graduated from Russellville High School, after enjoying playing football and being in the Drama Department. He moved to California, where he became a highway patrol officer. After moving back to Russellville, he enjoyed many different jobs, especially his last job, which was rescuing animals and providing a home for them. He was an avid fisherman and hunter.
Greg was a wonderful husband and a wonderful Big Poppa. He had a quirky sense of humor but brought common sense to any situation. He had the ability to love others and found the good in everyone he knew. He will be missed by all who knew him.
The visitation will be 2-4 p.m. May 6 at Spry Memorial Chapel, with a memorial service following at 4 p.m. in the chapel.
He is survived by his love of his life, Mary Jane Reed Willis, who he lovingly called “Lil Sweet” and “the Bomb;” children Kade Willis, Garrett Willis and Christine Brower; grandson Henry Joe “Booder Bear” Brower; special cousin, Sharon and Robert Hamilton; best friends, Dan “Bro” and Diane Campbell and Joe and Nancy Motta; as well as several cousins, aunts and uncles.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Billy Charles Willis and Peggy Sue Laster Willis.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial donation to the Greg Willis Memorial Fund at Listerhill Credit Union to aid in the further rescue and care of animals.
