Willie J. McGhee, 65, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, June 7, 2016.  Willie was born in Amite County, MS on Nov. 23, 1950, son of the late Emmitt Sr. and Rosa Lee (nee: Banks) McGhee.  Willie was raised in McComb, MS and baptized as a member at Rosehill F.B. Church.  He was a proud graduate of Higgins High School “Class of 1969”.

 Following graduation, Willie relocated to Racine, WI where he was employed for thirty years with J.I. Case Company until his retirement in 2000. An avid General Motors and Oldsmobile car enthusiast, he enjoyed restoring and collecting different models throughout the years.  He will be remembered fondly for his love of sports, especially basketball, his dogs and most importantly his family.

 A Memorial Celebration of Willie’s life will be held at the funeral home on Saturday July 9, 2016, 11 a.m., with Pastor Anthony Lapetina officiating. Relatives and friends may meet with the family at the funeral home on Saturday from 10 a.m. until time of service at 11 a.m.  In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Sturtevant Police Department, Canine Fund have been suggested.
