Vince Williford, Jr.
Wrens, GA – Vince Williford, Jr., 74, loving husband of 52 years to Bobbie Sammons Williford, entered into eternal rest Sunday afternoon, March 29, 2015 at his residence. Funeral services will be held at 3:00PM Wednesday, April 1, 2015 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Danny Rountree officiating. Interment will follow in the Wrens Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
One of four children born to the late Molly Usry Williford and the late Vince Williford, Vince was a native of Glascock County but had lived in Wrens for the past 46 years where he was a member of Wrens Baptist Church. After proudly serving his country in the Army, he started working as a janitor for EZGo. Believing in hard work, he “progressed up the ladder” at EZGo when, after 14 years of service, he decided to go to work at Club Car, where he climbed the ladder further and retired after 14 years of service as their Production Manufacturing Engineer. He then retired a second time working nine years at Air Balance, where he was nicknamed “Money”. A self-made man, Vince was all about hard work and his family—he was always trying to provide and make everything better for his family. Steadfast, loyal, dedicated, hard-working, trustworthy—just a few words that can only begin to describe his character. Above all else, he loved his family, especially his Jazzy.
Vince is also preceded in death by all of his siblings, Otis Williford, Louie Williford and Christine Gill. Other survivors include his children, Bruce Williford and Julie Williford; granddaughter, Jazmin Loranzie MacKendree; several nieces and nephews; and many friends. Pallbearers will be Larry Chalker, Lex Howard, Mike McGahee, Bill Perry, Alan Stafford and Jeff Walden.
Heartfelt thanks are given to his nurse and friend, Lynn McDonald, for her love and compassion.
The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00PM Tuesday evening, March 31, 2015.
Legacy Of Love
A husband, a father, a grandpa too,
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight;
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another--
Not just as a husband, not just as a father.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace--you've earned your sleep.
Your love in our hearts, we'll eternally keep.
