Willie McGhee

May 22, 1938 ~ October 31, 2020 (age 82)


Willie McGhee was born May 22, 1938 to the late Ishman and Beactrice McGhee.

Willie served as a truck driver for several years in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was a hard and dedicated worker. He continued to work numerous of jobs when he relocated to Hammond, Louisiana. Unfortunately, he was injured at his workplace. He was not able to pursue as he once did, but he still made a way to provide for his youngest daughter, Shanna Reardon. Willie had a strong mind and always persevered through hardship and difficult times. He never wanted to worry anyone, even through sickness and time of need. He would always say that he was okay. In the early year of 2019, he decided to relocate once again to Monroe, Louisiana. Willie spent the rest of his days with more of his relatives in Monroe, and he lived a great life.

We remember Willie for his big smile, his words of wisdom, and his wonderful voice for song. He was loved and will be truly missed.
