WILLIAM GLYN STRINGER
Mr. William Glyn Stringer, 59, a resident of Honoraville, passed away peacefully in his home on Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2020. A graveside service will be held for Mr. Stringer at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31, in Hopewell Cemetery in Honoraville with Pastor John Ross Massey officiating and Turners Funeral Home of Luverne directing.
Mr. Stringer proudly served his community as a firefighter and first responder with the Honoraville Volunteer Fire Department for 39 years. He was a well-known and respected member of his community. He was quite a character and could entertain anyone for hours. His personality really shined as he hosted a gospel music show on WQZX 94.3. More than anything, he loved his family. He was a devoted husband, son, brother, and uncle, and he absolutely adored his nieces and nephews. He was a special light in his community and will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved him.
Mr. Stringer was preceded in death by his father, Earnest Glyn Stringer, and his grandparents, William E. “Gene” & Mildred Taylor Stringer and R.D. & Lucille Tate Witherington.
He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Meg Ferguson Stringer; mother, Minnie Sylvia Witherington Stringer; brother, Mickey Ray Stringer; sister-in-law, Lois Ferguson Conner; niece, Sara Stringer (J.D.) Dorman; nephew, Austin Stringer; and two great-nieces, Rheya & Emilia Dorman.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to either the Honoraville Volunteer Fire Department, 6630 Honoraville Rd, Honoraville, Alabama 36042 or Spring Creek Baptist Church, 142 Ashmore Road, Honoraville, Alabama 36042.
I will always remember Cousin Bill. What grand adventures he led us on when we visited him as youngsters! We explored barns and spooky old buildings, all the while enjoying commentary from Bill, sometimes sending chills down our spines or causing us to laugh till we cried!! The most vivid stories Bill entertained us with were during a tour of an old building full of wild animals that were taxidermied and stood dusty in the dark peering down on us. What creepy tales Bill laid on us concerning each of these creatures!! Bill was a barrel of fun right from a young age. I will miss him dearly. In most recent years we shared political thought and I know Bill would highly object to the silencing and censorship occurring now in America. Bill was opinionated and outspoken. There is no other like him. What a loss of such a wonderful and precious individual. My heart goes out to his mother Sylvia and brother Mickey Ray and family. I love him and will miss him always.
