You Can Rest Peaceful Founder Barron Willis II You Delivered The Goods
It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my father, Barron Willis II. He passed away peacefully on Dec 23rd. One of his last words to me was “He who stands on toilet is high on pot"…he was funny that way.
Barron Willis III
I am so sorry to hear of your Dad, our fraternity founder, and my newly formed friend and brother's passing. My how I enjoyed our conversations 2 years ago while we discussed the 50th anniversary of the/his fraternity.
I also throughly enjoyed meeting his wife at the actual conclave. I have notified the fraternity of his passing. If you could let us know his final arrangements so that we can pass it on to the membership.
Oh how I wish I could've said goodbye to Founder Willis. He seemed to be able to put a smile on my face whenever I thought of him.
It would be great if all of Iota and of black men in general knew of the man who was Barron Willis what he stood for. What he endured and how his priciples harden like steel drove his desire for justice..
What Barron gave up as he was measured up against other men. Those traits would build a better Iotas as well as other black men. Sadly however men with the character and fortitude of Barron Willis aren't being built like that any longer.
