William Michael Dykes was born on May 28, 1960, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond and Beaulah Dykes. He dabbled in many things through the years and was truly a jack of all trades; some of his hobbies included wood-working, watching NASCAR, and doing pig roasts for family and friends. He was kind to everyone he met; if you stuck around long enough, you were family, and if ever you needed something, he was always willing to help. Left to cherish William’s memory are his daughters; Rachael and Christina Dykes, brothers; Richard, Chuck, and Brian Dykes, and sister; Deb Gray - as well as the large extended family. William was preceded in death by his parents; Raymond and Beaulah Dykes, his wife; Karen (Baxter) Dykes, and his sister; Sue Sanders.
