Bill Browning, 80, of Crossett, passed away on Friday, December 1, 2023. He was born on August 15, 1943, to his parents, Luther and Lillian McCaughan Browning. He was a lifelong resident of Crossett, a 1961 graduate of Crossett High School, and a member of South Main Baptist Church.
After completing three years of honorable service in the United States Navy, Bill returned to his roots and dedicated nearly four decades of his professional life to Georgia Pacific. After retirement, he joined the G4S Security team, and with an unwavering work ethic, he committed himself to the safeguarding of others.
Bill's faith was the cornerstone of his life. He consistently ensured that his family attended church, imparting the values of love, faith, and community to those closest to him. His role as a provider and a guiding force was evident not only in his professional life but also in the way he nurtured his family.
Bill found joy in the simple pleasures of life, particularly in the company of his beloved dogs and the tranquility of the outdoors. A former deer hunter, Bill appreciated the beauty of nature and spent countless hours tinkering in his workshop, where he crafted unique and personalized belt buckles. His creative spirit and knack for finding value in odd, random items were testament to his ingenuity.
Above all, Bill cherished his family and friends. Known as a great daddy, he created lasting memories through family vacations and quality time spent together. His warm and welcoming spirit made him a cherished friend to many, and his genuine love for people was a testament to the impact he had on those around him.
Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife of forty-nine years, Linda Barnett Browning; and four brothers, Denzil, Kenneth, Jim, and Edward Browning.
He leaves behind his son, Robert Browning (Sharon) of Scappoose, OR; and one daughter, Angie Starling (Kirk) of Hamburg; along with one brother, Aaron Browning (Brenda) of Little Rock, AR; two sisters, Aimee Stanley of Harrison, AR, and Becky Zintel (Mark) of Crossett; one grandson, Wesley Weaver of Hamburg; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, December 5th, at the South Main Baptist Church, 2801 Main St, Crossett, with Pastor Brad Savage, officiating, followed by interment at Pinewood Memorial Park, under the direction of Medders Funeral Home. Pallbearers are Kirk Starling, Wesley Weaver, Frank Dodd, Keith Browning, and Rusty McCaughan with Benji Price as an honorary pallbearer.
Visitation will be from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Monday, December 4th at Medders Funeral Home, 1564 Hwy 52 W, in Crossett.
