William “Bill” Chester Yancy Jr, 74, of Ider, AL, was called home on May 2, 2020.
Bill was a member of the Holiness Church for over 38 years. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in urban planning and was just a few credits shy of his Master’s degree. He was honorably discharged from the United States Navy after serving two terms. He was the owner operator of Yancy’s body shop for over 20 years. He worked for BASF corporation for 15 years selling auto paint systems. He loved vintage cars and most of the family photos included ones to prove that! He was very generous, always willing to help those he felt was less fortunate than himself, even if he was the less fortunate. He was an extremely talented artist that could recreate anything. Bill had a witty sense of humor and loved to make people laugh. He loved to serve the Lord, playing the guitar and Alabama football.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 53 years, Virginia Yancy; daughters, Cindy (Chad) Spurgeon and Michelle (Tony) Kessler; son, Nathan (Marina) Yancy; son in-law, Billy Wagner; sister, Shirley Horton; grandchildren, Colby, Austin and Mikayla Wagner; Sam, Luke and Adrianna Yancy; Cooper Spurgeon; great-grandchildren Quinn and Sawyer Wagner.
