10/1/1924 – 1/31/2015
William Andrew Huntley was born to Payton Huntley and Ethel Thomas in Carroll County Mississippi on October 1, 1924. William married the love of his life, Rose Zellar Burkhead on September 11, 1943 and later moved to Omaha, NE in the mid 1960’s. They were together until September 2, 2009, when the Lord called her home.
William loved our Lord. He was baptized and joined Summerfield Baptist Church at an early age. He often caught the attention of his neighbors on Evans Street as he would sing praises to God while tending to his garden. His love of preaching was evident even later in life as he walked the halls of Ridgecrest.
Mourning his passing are sons Robert Lee (Natalie) Huntley, and Otis (Ruth) Huntley; grandchildren Lisa Kennedy Huntley, Otis Shepherd Huntley, Erica Huntley Palmer, Angelique Huntley, Rachel Huntley, RaShawn Simmons, Danae Simmons; sisters Ella Mae Huntley Moore Adams, Melzina Reddex, Ruby Clark, Esther Sutton, Beth Young, Pearle Richardson, Darlene Bailey; brothers Charlie Huntley and Paul Huntley; 11 great-grand children and a host of other relatives and dear friends.
William is preceded in death by loving wife Rose; sons Wardell, Willie, Andrew, and daughter Melzina.
