Plant a tree in memory of JOHN

An environmentally friendly option

One of ten children, John Wesley Willis, Sr., was born on June 5, 1915 in Sparta, Georgia to the union of the late Mr. & Mrs. George and Sally Willis. John entered into the loving arms of our Lord Most High on the morning of November 27, 2006. He was 91 years old.

John was a loving husband to his wife Beulah L. Johnson-Willis, a caring and providing father to five sons and three daughters, a grandfather to three generations, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, and a friend.

He served the Mt. Zion Church and his community, lending his helping hands wherever needed and whenever asked.

He leaves to cherish his life and memories a loving and devoted family; his wife Beulah Lee Johnson-Willis, five sons – Bernard Willis (Daisy), Calvin Willis, Fredrick Willis, John W. Willis, Jr., Samuel Willis (Yvette); three daughters - Erma Roach (Rick), Karen Roberts (Norman) and Arlene Franklin (James).

He is survived by two living sisters – Inez Inmon and Ruby Fletcher; and one brother, Bishop Clifford Willis; three sisters-in law, Edna Willis, Hilda M. Willis and Erma J. Willis.

Also holding his memory close to their hearts are an especially dear grandson, Jason L. Willis (Adrienne), a host of endearing grandsons and granddaughters, great grandchildren, great-great children, and great-great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
