The family of William (Bill) Virgel Bishop is saddened to announce his passing on December 12th, 2021 at age of 80 years.
He will be remembered and greatly missed by his nieces and nephews as well as other family members and dear friends. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Hildred Bishop, brother Desmond Bishop, sister Lillie Day, and his two nephews, Walter Goold and Mack Day, Jr.
Bill served his country as a Medic in the Vietnam War. He received a Vietnam Service Medal and Medical Badge. After his service, he went to Bible College in Lakeland, Florida and became a Pastor, which was his calling from a young age. Throughout his career, he worked in other fields and obtained his Builders and Real Estate licenses along the way. He always had a very strong work ethic and remained actively employed as a truck driver.
He was an avid reader who was devoted to learning about all things pertaining to religion. He liked horses and horseback riding. Bill was a devoted family member who tried to be at all family events. In his spare time, he also enjoyed watching Westerns.
Bill was the definition of a kind son, brother, and uncle. He was someone who would help you in time of need, offer words of encouragement, and be able to tell funny family stories.
