He worked hard to provide for his family, even constantly working on the family cars to keep everyone going. He loved coon hunting, motorcycles, and flirting with pretty women. He was the toughest man alive and still an anchor and best friend for his wife, Dana.
He was a mentor to their boys. He was fortunate to know he had true friends. “It is not the length of life, but the depth of life lived.” That was Bill; he lived a deep life. He went before his time and he will be truly missed by his family and friends.

Thomas Blane Morgan of Hawaii, Kody Morgan of Whitesboro, Garret Harris of Texas, Amy Scott of Tioga and Summer Cox of Justin; his mother, Margaret Clark of Whitesboro; his siblings, Jesse Scott of Ramona, Calif., Eugene Clark of Marietta, Okla., Wynoth Renee Fischer of Sanger and Eluzabeth Clark of Whitesboro; and grandchildren, Abigail Jade Scott, McKinsey Dawn Moncrief and Graham Carver.
