William “Bill” Eller, 76, of Ferguson passed away Tuesday, July 20, 2021, at his home.
Graveside services will be held 2 p.m. Friday, July 23, 2021, at Beaver Creek Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. James Hall officiating.
Mr. Eller was born Sept. 2, 1944, in Wilkes County to Marshall E. and Helen Hayes Eller. He was a member of Beaver Creek Baptist Church and a deacon. He loved going to church and being with his church family. Bill was a truck driver at Caldwell Freight Lines in Lenoir for 30 years and he enjoyed driving that truck. I will miss him like crazy but at least I know where he is and he is not sick anymore. Bill loved his family, especially his grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years; Linda Walsh Eller of the home; a daughter, Sherry Eller of Ferguson; a son, Michael Eller and wife, Connie, of Ferguson; grandchildren, Mattie Steele and husband, Chris of Winston-Salem, Mackenzi Eller, Gabbe Jennings, Eli Triplett; and a sister, Elizabeth Mullis of Valdese.
Flowers will be accepted or memorials may be made to Beaver Creek Baptist Church Cemetery Fund, P.O. Box 26, Ferguson, N.C., 28624.
