Parley Gail Willis, age 85, born September 9, 1931, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, February 12th, 2017. He leaves a loving family who will miss him but whose sorrow is swallowed up in their belief that families are forever, and that through Jesus Christ’s Atonement and the plan of happiness, we will all be together again.
His wife Karen Campbell Willis is comforted in this time of sorrow by her children and grandchildren, whom she and her husband love immensely. Gail was a quiet and gentle man, who loved with his whole heart, believed in forgiveness, loved nature, and who served his fellowmen with ease and grace.
He is loved, will be missed, and leaves his family a path to follow… with faith in every footstep, around every bend, and through every valley. His family looks forward to the day when we can see him again. He is survived by his children Karie Peel, Kathleen Porter (Nate), Gregory Willis (SueAnn), Geoffrey Willis (Missy), and Katie Jensen (Ron), 21 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 11 AM, at Bunker’s Garden Chapel, 33 N. Centennial Way, Mesa, Arizona. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to: Sunrise Points of Light Foundation, c/o Reflections Hospice, 1840 E. University Drive, Mesa, AZ, 85203.
