William O'Connell Obituary
O'Connell, William Joseph "Billy" Born January 29, 1950, passed on April 16, 2019. Son of the late Edna Hines O'Connell and James D. O'Connell; brother of the late Margaret O'Connell Sparks (George), James D.

He had 12 grandnieces and nephews. Billy enjoyed numerous forever friendships. All of us were his "kids" and he was the biggest, most fun kid of all. We thank him for showing us how to live out loud! Always a song in his heart and a swagger in his step. We wish we had more time together. Every day we had was truly a gift.
