In Loving Memory of Junior Darial Willis

Junior Darial Willis, beloved brother and kind-hearted soul, passed away on August 25, 2023, in Cleveland, TN, at the age of 68. Born on September 21, 1954, in his beloved hometown, Cleveland, Junior's passing leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Junior embraced the simple joys of life, finding solace in walking, riding bicycles, and cherishing the beauty of nature. Though facing physical challenges, he approached life with a resilient spirit, demonstrating determination and resilience that inspired those around him.

Junior is now reunited with his loving parents and four siblings, Walter, Robert, Donnie, and Sharon, who have gone before him. Junior will be deeply missed by his remaining sisters, Irene Mason, Joyce Willis, and Margaret Fairbanks (Donald), whom he shared a special bond of love and kinship.

To honor Junior's life, we gather together to celebrate his memories. A visitation will be held at Companion Funeral & Cremation Service in Cleveland on August 30, 2023, starting at 10:00 am. Friends, family, and loved ones can pay their last respects and share their condolences during this time.

Following the visitation, a funeral service will take place at Companion Funeral & Cremation Service at 12:00 pm. The ceremony will be conducted with the utmost respect and care, providing an opportunity for all to reflect upon Junior's life and the impact he made on those around him.

Finally, we will bid our farewell to dear Junior with a graveside service at Boanerges Baptist Church Cemetery on August 30, 2023, following the service. There, amidst the serene beauty of nature, we will lay him to rest, finding solace in knowing that he will forever be a part of the landscape he cherished.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to all who have offered their condolences and support during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Junior may be made to a charity of your choice to honor his giving spirit.

Junior's departure leaves behind cherished memories, reminding us to find joy in simplicity and to value the precious moments we have with loved ones. His legacy of resilience and determination will forever inspire us. May his gentle soul find eternal peace, and may we find comfort in the legacy he leaves behind.

Rest in peace, dear Junior. You will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all whose lives you touched.
