Willie (1920-2007) was the grandson of Maude Liller Mabe and a World War II vet. This is what his daughter, Angela, said about her father "He was a sharp shooter. He was in Co. B 351st infantry, the 88th regiment divison, a unit called the"Blue Devils". He lived in Graham & was a retired supervisor of a hosiery mill. In his younger days he farmed tobacco and was an automobile and small engine mechanic. In his off time he hunted with beagles and was treasurer of the Alamance County Beagle Club. He loved God and his family." He was a man who had his priorities in the right order.
