He passed away Nov. 17, 2018. He was the loving husband of his high school sweetheart, Melanie Wagner. They shared 518 days of blissful marriage together.

Will was passionate about things that truly mattered. His wife was the light of his life. Weight lifting, MMA, hunting, traveling, and a good poker game with friends are a few things that Will enjoyed.
A well fitted shirt, Wrangler jeans, and a pair of boots were his trademark. He will be remembered for his light, positive attitude and ability to love selflessly.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Bill Baker.
