There were a few things Willie loved more than watching the OU Sooners play football, but one of the things he loved more, was watching his children grow up and be involved in numerous sports and activities. He was their biggest fan. He was an animal love, and his dogs were his best companions. He also enjoyed attending and watching drag racing events and grilling. Willie was a brother in Christ, and his love of god and his spirituality was very important to him.
