  2. Dear Willie,

    I remember your clear blue eyes, your impish dimples, your love of baseball, and your flair for mischief. I am so glad that you had the opportunity to see some of your friends from A-M Consolidated High School during your Class of ’66 reunion recently. We will miss you. I send my deepest sympathy to your family, especially to your dad and your sister, Michelle.

    To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die.

  3. I am sorry to hear about Willie, my prayers go out to his dad an Michelle. I recently saw Willie at the CHS class reunion where he reminded me of our seventh grade school trip to the San Jacinto Monument. I enjoyed seeing Willie and catching up on old and new times.

  4. We had such a wonderful visit with Willie at our high school reunion party. It was good to be with him. We talked about where he lived and growing tomatoes! He wanted to know about us too.
    So many good memories. Farewell, Willie. You, your dad and Michelle are in our prayers.

  5. Please accept my deepest sympathy to Willie’s family, especially Michele. Although I didn’t know Willie very well, I know he will be missed and will be remembered by many people. Too young to leave us, and we thank you for your service in helping keep our country free. God give you the peace you so much deserve.
    Most sincerely,
    Locke (Wade) Pachall ’68

  6. Jimmy,Michele and family,

  7. Willie Edmonds, with his sparkly blue eyes full of mischief and that smile that could be so very sweet … or so very impish.

    I haven’t seen him for over 20 years, but it’s sad knowing that he’s gone.

    Until we meet again, Willie, in a better place and time.

    Class of ’66

  8. Dear Willie,

    We did a lot together old pal. My first memory of you was going over to your place by campus in about the 4th grade. The house was green, my favorite color, and it is a restaurant now and everytime I eat there I remind myself that I’m sitting in your bedroom where we made our first daring plans for this world. Then I see us as ball boys at the Rice-A-M football game and a fight breaks out and the stands flood the field and we hide behind some players. Fast forward to little league and you picking me off third base and smiling as I walk back to the bench. We were children of A-M. The campus was our backyard. We knew every nook and cranny from the steam tunnels to the top of the dome on the Academic Building. Me, you, and Fred, hellions on the two blue scooters in the moonlight, up and down the sidewalks, tossing water balloons, running stop signs while the KKs sat silent and depressed watching us. We knew them and they knew us. We did other stuff later on–football, basketball, college, Austin and Dallas… the old days when we were young men. But, my first memories are the strongest, when we were kids ranging all over College Station…when parking lots were fields and buildings were big trees and you and I could run our dogs together for miles without seeing anybody. You take it easy Willie and I’ll meet you later, some where down the line. Duke

  9. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. So sorry to hear of Willie’s passing .I considered him a good friend in school and he was a hell of a left handed pitcher back in the day . Take care …Jimmy in Crockett ,Texas

  10. We have only known Will for what seems to be too short a time. He was kind, generous and the most mischieveous man we’ve met. Our daughters loved him like an Uncle and looked forward to just hanging out at his pond. He walked this earth for such a short time, but impacted all who he touched. We will miss him dearly. I will especially miss his smile!

  11. To express our deep sympathy to you on your loss. We thank William for serving our country during the Vietnam War in the U.S. Marine Corps. Because of you and other young men and women we have our freedon in this great country. We thank you for also being a member of The American Legion, as well as your father and step-mother. May God’s Speed Be With You Wiliam.

  12. Will was my boss in Dallas. And what an exceptional manager he was! You could take him a problem and he would analyze it, ask lots of questions and get lots of advice and make it all fun. Somehow his actions gave his employees a sense of ownership in the company. The loyalty he earned from his employees continues today, years later.

    I respected, admired and liked him. I will miss him.

    My deepest condolences go to Michele, Will

  13. Willie was 4 grades behind me at Consolidated High School. I didn’t remember him until I saw his picture and then I remembered his beautiful eyes and what a polite and fun-loving boy he seemed to be. God hold him in His loving arms as he waits for all he loved to join him.

  14. You are my brother and my hero. I have so many memories of us as kids. We fought the fight together and I never gave up on you or you in me. Our talks, our hand in hand your final weeks will always be with me. You were so brave and in such pain. I am at peace to see you in peace.You give Mom a big hug till we meet again. I love you, Michele

  15. Hi Uncle Willie. I am glad that you are finally at peace now, out of pain and in the company of Grandma. I wish you could have met Jackson and done the ‘Woody Woodpecker Laugh’ one more time for him. Sometimes you were just a crazy old man but have always loved you. Thanks for getting us up here to the Big D and for all you did for us. We shall continue your legacy ! Gig Em and see you someday. 🙂
