Willie Poe was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He was an avid socializer, with a direct, honest, and forward opinion. He would drop everything to help a friend in need. Not a fighter but love to love. He truly enjoyed bar-b-quing his amazing and delicious foods for family and friends. Willie Poe was an extraordinarily gifted conservationist who would love to stir laughter in the room. He loved and enjoyed fishing, playing pool, dominoes, and visits to the social clubs to relax and unwind.

Willie is preceded in death by his grandmother and parents.
