Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Wil Mcconnell, Uncle Wil, was the most gentle, loving,kind, soft spoken, strong, amazing man I have ever known. He loved his family deeply and never had a bad word to say about anyone. I will always remember how he loved frozen candy bars, and a good cold Heineken on a hot day camping. I will forever miss you Uncle Wil. Rest Peacefully.
