William Alexander Etzel

05/11/1989 ~


On October 14th, 2022, William Etzel was taken from us in a tragic motorcycle accident. He is preceded in death by his Meemaw, Joan Kindel, and is survived by his father, Tom Etzel, mother, Alice Etzel, and younger brother Thomas Etzel. William was simultaneously the life of every party without taking attention away from the important things, as kind and gentle as he was adventurous, and a more steadfast friend, son, and brother than any of us feel we deserved. He could always be found surrounded by others, laughing, joking, or telling stories. He had such a thirst for knowledge that if you piqued his interest in any subject, he would be an expert on the matter within the next 24 hours, and he was so generous that he would share any challenge and shoulder any burden for complete strangers. No words will ever successfully describe the light and joy he brought into the lives of every person he met, or the loss we feel with his absence. We will always love and remember you bubba, and I will carry you in my heart and memories for the rest of my life. So few people can be so fortunate as to have someone like you be their brother.

    William was the little boy Next door that I watched grow up into an extraordinary young man that he became. He was always very respectful to his parents and to all he came in contact with. He was always there with a helping hand and will be greatly missed. When my late husband was sick, Will would take JP’s motorcycle out and run it for him. He ran it for me afterwards out of the kindness of his heart. He was such a happy and a kind hearted man.
