Obituary for William (Bill) Ferrell

William (Bill)  Ferrell
William (Bill) John Ferrell, age 75, of Clinton passed away peacefully early Thursday morning, March 8, 2018 at his home surrounded by his loving wife and family. He was born June 1, 1942 in Knoxville and lived most of his adult life in Anderson County. Bill was a member of Pine Ridge Baptist Church in Clinton and longed to be able to attend church one more time. He had worked for 35 years as a custodian in the Anderson County School System Association. He enjoyed fishing and doing yard work. Bill took extreme pride in his grandchildren and will be greatly missed for his sense of what was really important in life. His example lives on for all of us to follow and that is to be kind and help others. Bill’s favorite quote was, “Have a good day today and a better one tomorrow.” In life he brought smiles to a lot of faces that were struggling and downhearted. On Thursday morning Bill began his ‘Better Day’ and is now with the Lord, free from all the struggles that cancer brought into his life. He is preceded in death by his parents, Tillman Parker Ferrell and Rosalee Hutchison Ferrell; twin sister, Wilma Jean Ferrell; brother, Jim Ferrell.
