Obituary for William "Bill" Minnick

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, William "Bill" Minnick left this earth to be with his Heavenly Father at 76 years old. Bill was born on the nineteenth day of February in 1941 in Briery Branch, VA, to parents H.L. and Marvie Minnick as the eighth of eight children. He attended Rockingham County Public Schools and Bridgewater High School. He worked in the electrical supply business at Electrical Wholesalers and ECK Supply before retiring. He most enjoyed woodworking, hunting, fishing, spending time with his family, and upholding an endless supply of jokes.

Bill was preceded in death by brothers, Johnny, Ray, and Leo Minnick. He is survived by the love of his life and wife of 53 years, Ruby Minnick, as well as siblings Dorothy Payne, Violet Litten, David Minnick, and Jim Minnick. He also leaves behind daughters, Joyce Hensley and Debbie Dean and companion Alan "Doc" Howard, and grandchildren Joshua Hensley and Angela Deviers.

Bill was a good, hardworking man who never had a bad word to say against anyone. He was a loving husband, brother, father, and grandfather. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

The family will receive friends at Johnson Funeral Service in Bridgewater from 6 until 7PM Monday, November 6, 2017.

A graveside service will be conducted 2PM Tuesday, November 7, 2017, at Briery Branch Church cemetery, with Pastor W.L. (Sonny) Henkel officiating.
