Suddenly as the result of an accident on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 of RR 1 Kirkton in his 87th year. Loving husband of Gertrude (Packham) for over 59 years. Proud father of Steve Willis and Karen Greaves of Bayfield, Ed and Karen Willis of Exeter, Patti Willis-Leake and Rob Leake of Exeter, Diane Willis and Rebecca Stevens of London, and Carol Willis of London.
