William Harris “Bill” Slaton III born Feb. 5, 1951, called home by our Lord Jesus Christ on Nov. 16, 2019.
Bill was a motorcycle rider accompanied by his wife, a fisherman and a camper. He loved fishing whenever weather permitted. He loved the outdoors and camping with his wife and friends. He loved playing games on Xbox, NASCAR Racing (Dale Earnhardt), NHRA racing (John Force) and loved being at home and his afternoon naps. He was a best friend, soulmate, two peas in a pod to his wife. He loved scaring his kids, wife and whoever else that would fall for his pranks, from walking through the house in a gorilla suit, to standing on the roof in a sheet like a ghost. He loved his TV, watching sports, scary movies and the Walking Dead. He was perfect at making his wife laugh and making her totally happy.
He is survived by Carolyn Clark Slaton, wife of 16 years; by the mother of his children, Mona Slaton Sanders; his children, Shannon Flannery (Chad), David Slaton (Heather) and Kimberly Fowler (Bobby); stepdaughters, Kristi Brocato (Nick) and Telli Zitzmann (Phil); grandchildren, Devin Slaton, Ariana Fowler, Alexis Flannery, Thomas Flannery, Mason Slaton, Holland Fowler, Lyric Slaton, Isabella Brocato, Nick Brocato, LeeAnn Zitzmann, Avery Zitzmann, Conor Montalbano and Cade Montalbano; brother, Robert A. Slaton (Kathy); as well as nieces and nephews.
He is preceeded in death by his late wife, Suzanne M. Slaton; mother, Mae Murray Slaton; and father, William H. Slaton II.
