Bill was born on June 17, 1952 to Delorice Satterfield Morris and the late Elton Emmett. Throughout his career, he dedicated himself to education and served as a valued teacher within the Dade County School system before retiring. He also spent several years as an adjunct professor at Northeast Alabama Community College. The number of lives he impacted is immeasurable, and his legacy will not be soon forgotten.

Bill also maintained many life long friendships and treasured them deeply over the years. These include Jimmy Powell; his bridge group members, Scott Black and Brian Adkins; Mac Smotherman; and Kevin Holcomb.

The family wants to say a special thank you to the DeKalb County First Responders for their kindness and assistance during this difficult time.
