Bill most enjoyed spending time with and taking care of his family, telling
stories, adventuring and exploring with his children, grandchildren, nieces,
and nephews. His loved ones gave him great pleasure in life. Bill was
always embracing and encouraging the imagination in those he was
around. He was not afraid to get a little silly if it meant there was fun or an
adventure to be had. Bill touched many lives and, nearest we can tell, was
universally loved by those who knew him. In his "off" time, Bill enjoyed
fishing, being outdoors, and his dogs. Having a desire for traveling, he also
traveled across the country several times throughout his life. He was never
too busy to stop and spend time with or help those around him.
Bill is preceded in death by his parents; and two brothers: R.L. Waters and
He is survived by his life-partner, Toni McFarland; three sons: Shawn
(Terrie) Cutburth, Zachariah (Autumn) Waters, and Marshall Waters; bonus
