Willie was the nineth of eleven children. He was educated in the Detroit Public Schools. He went on to obtain several different jobs. He worked for the Jackson Michigan Public Transportation, which he recently ended due to medical reasons. Willie loved playing the organ (keyboard) every chance he got. Never having any education or special training, he was gifted to read and play music. He was also known as the Minister of Music to many churches throughout Michigan and other states. Oftentimes he would take his daughter Marcaela a long side him to play the drums. He was so glad to have her with him. Willie gave his life to Christ at a young age and was baptized. As he grew in life, he also grew in grace. He became a mighty man of faith and served the Lord with all his heart. His love for the Lord enabled him to walk in the office of an evangelist, bring all who would come with him to church to learn of Christ. He elevated to Elder and shortly thereafter he excepted the call of Pastor. Willie was ordained Pastor, September 16, 2012 by Bishop DW Claiborne of Detroit, Michigan, at Pentecostal Church Inc.
