From Heather: “Dad was a wonderful man who positively impacted so many people’s
lives. To the community he
was an astute businessman, but to us he was a loving father and
husband. We already miss him
tremendously. We appreciate the support and privacy the community has
given our family during
this difficult time.”
Heather Mays Wood, daughter of William “Bill” Mays.
From Rose: “Our family is deeply saddened by Bill’s death. Words cannot express
the sense of loss we feel.
We are extremely grateful for the community’s support over these past
few weeks. Please
continue to pray for us.”
Dr. Rose Mays, wife of William “Bill” Mays
From Carolene Mays-Medley: The loss of Bill leaves a void in our hearts. Bill was a unique soul and generous spirit, with a one-of-a-kind personality. He was incredibly passionate about the community, entrepreneurship and of course family and friends. He was a true giant amongst us who was always willing to lend a helping hand or create opportunities for others. It was a blessing for us to be there with him as the angels took him home. My uncle Billy will be deeply missed for so many reasons; but for us, we miss him because of his love, compassion and many simple things – like his smile, his warm heart, and commitment to our family. We love him just for who he was.
