He spent his final days at home in Sandy, Utah surrounded by those he loved most.Willie spent life serving others and always with a smile. He worked with his hands on cars, wood and anything he could create to be a gift of love. He loved working with his tools in his garage and was known as Mr. Fix-It. He loved cars and will always be a Ford Man. Many have said there will be Fords in heaven and Willie will be working on one of them. Willie loved camping, "cruising for foxes", hunting and fishing. He loved spending time on the many McCandless-Clark expeditions. Willie loved making his famous barbecue and Dutch-oven meals for family, friends and the scouts. He loved his Coca-Cola and tooth picks and it was a rare moment he didn't have a tooth pick behind his ear or in his mouth. Willie was a die-hard Ute fan and took every chance to let his BYU family and friends know when their team lost. Willie became an active and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was a worthy priesthood holder. He held many callings in the church, but loved serving in the Young Men and Scouting organizations the most. He loved teaching and was known for being an amazing man and a good listener. Willie loved his boys and attended every scout camp, sporting event and school activity they had. He especially loved fixing his sons Bronco II, known as the training vehicle. His quick wit kept everyone on their toes, especially his sons. Willie always said if he didn't like you, he wouldn't tease you. The greatest love of his life is his wife Adele, and they spent many hours together in their garden and working on home projects. They were married August 16th, 1980 and sealed their love in the Salt Lake Temple August 16th, 1994 for time and all eternity.Willie is preceded in death by his father, mother, and brother, Jerry.
