Billy (Wild Bill) English (2018-11-02 14:41:08)

Billy (Wild Bill) English passed away one October 28, 2018.

Bill is survived by his brother Larry and his two sons Ronnie and Michael. He traveled all over while in the service and truck driving later on in life. Bill could direct you anywhere and always knew of the best views and coolest spots to take you to. He spent many years collecting antiques and cowboy boots. He sure loved his boots, only thing he probably loved more was a pone of Sue's cornbread and spending time with his great-great nephew Buster. Bill was one of the most kind and generous people you could know. He would give you the shirt off his back and always showed up when his family or friends needed him. He spent a great deal of time with his niece Cheryl Ollis, he was a huge influence in all five of her children's lives and continued that presence in his great-great nieces and nephew's lives. Bill had the greatest stories to tell because he never stopped exploring. Old Speedy never slowed down and never stopped adventuring right up until the end. We know he is up in heaven drinking some sweet tea watching over us all.

The family would like to give a very special thanks to Medi-Home Hospice, Robert Cook, Cytina Reinecke, and Shelly Green for their love and support through the last few months of Bill's life. A celebration of life will be held on November 11 at 3:00 p.m. at 254 Brookshell rd. Elk Park N.C. 28622. All in attendance please bring a covered dish and your best memories of Uncle Bill.
