Bill was born in Navasota on June 29, 1958, to Johnny & Peggy Fuqua. Known to everyone as “Wild Bill, “or “Biggun,” he loved to entertain with his never-ending supply of stories, mischievous humor, and infectious laughter. He had a love for people from all walks of life and made friends everywhere he went. He married the love of his life, Deborah in 1984. By trade, he was an electrician, but also worked in various positions for TDCJ for 25 years, retiring for the second time from TDCJ in 2012. He had a deep love for his hometown and the future of its youth, donating his time and skills wherever they were needed. He combined his passion for barbequing with his love for the Grimes County youth by participating in the Grimes County cook-offs for nearly 40 years, helping to raise money for area youth scholarships. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to many.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents Johnny Parker and Peggy June Fuqua; two sisters Glenda Diane Sharp and Johanna Beth Fuqua; and granddaughter Hannah Elisabeth Price.
