SAN ANTONIO-William and Linda Willis were always together and their love was contagious.
“A lot of love, a lot of wanting to help, just really a sense of family,” says, Kevin Willis, Son.
The couple was killed along with Linda’s mother and stepfather in a car accident in Iowa on August 14th.
The Willis’ were volunteers with meals on wheels in San Antonio through their church and Linda had a passion for the deaf. She worked three days a week at deaf interpreter services here in San Antonio.
“The Friday that she left on vacation, she came into my office and was talking and she said, I will see you Monday. She signed all the time,” says, Marilyn Weber, Deaf Interpreter Services, CEO
They were in Iowa visiting family, they hadn’t seen for a long time. Soon after the crash, Kevin says he was told that visit was a memorable One, and they left this earth with very content hearts.
“At that moment, family being so important, and the way the circumstances happened in the accident, there was no suffering, according the reports it was instant, they went together, they went as a family,” says, Kevin Willis, Son.
William served 37 years as a civil servant in the Air Force. The two were always giving back.
“Over the past week, I have seen an outpouring of people that I have not even known, that they make the comment that they made such an impact just because of who they were,” says, Kevin Willis, Son.
Now, the Willis family and all of the people they impacted take the memories they leave behind and the faith they had that each day was meant to be lived to the fullest.
“We have to believe that, you know, every event is going to change, either the path that you are on for the better or to help improve someone else’s life,” says, Marilyn Weber, Deaf Interpreter Services, CEO.
