Williams; nephews, Corey and Cody Dykes; two great nephews; along with several other family and friends.  Bill’s grandchildren were his everything, he enjoyed and loved dearly the time he spent together with them.
Bill was preceded in death by his mother, Cathern Smith Dykes; father, Michael Allen Dykes; his two brothers, Michael Allen Dykes, Jr. and Troy Ray Dykes; and his father-in-law, Dempsey Lumpkin.
Bill is now in his eternal home, where he has been welcomed in the gates of Heaven by all his loved ones whom have gone on before him.  We know now that he is truly happy to be reunited with his dad, mom, and two brothers, that he has missed for oh so long.  May Bill rest in peace for all eternity.
Psalms 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
