William Ray Stow, 2:00 PM, Thursday, December 7, 2017


William remained with the love of his life for 27 years. He was an outstanding father to two children and a kind, loving husband. All throughout high school he wrestled and played football. He graduated from Grant High School with the class of 1990. He later became a sheet metal fabricator for over 25 years. His passion was music, stunts, and making everyone laugh. He loved pulling pranks and shooting air soft guns at all of his loved ones. He also loved riding dirt bikes, camping, fishing, and just being with his family. William was a great athlete which never made it hard for him to teach his children how to play. He did a wonderful job at showing the ropes to his children and constantly being there for them. He couldn't have possibly been a better father. William always had a certain demeanor, and personality that only a lucky select group of people ever knew about. He was a great man with a huge heart. Another favorite hobby outside of listening to music and playing sports was that he always loved hiding in the dark and scaring his wife and children. He always had that particular laugh that was just contagious. William was a strong minded, stubborn yet courageous person. Being with him always made you feel safe and secure. With him we shared multiple laughs and countless memories. We all cherish the times we were able to withhold among him. He wouldn't want us to feel sad or be in dismay. He would want us to feel free and to carry on with love and remembrance of all of the good times and memories of laughter he left us with. He will forever be loved and greatly missed. As he would say "good-N'ight"

Will, you will be missed, not just as a neighbor but as a friend. I can't count the times we'd chat over the fence about anything and everything but I feel blessed having you and your wonderful family next door over all these years and would have never expected the kindness your family has shown me. Thank you for everything, Zak.
