William (Bill) Bindley Profilet Jr., M.D. (79 years) peacefully passed away on Jan. 2, 2024, in Grenada, Mississippi. He is preceded in death by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William B. Profilet Sr. Bill is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Mary Wilson Love Profilet of Grenada, Mississippi, and three children, son William Bindley (Ben) Profilet III (Mackenzie) of Gluckstadt, Mississippi, daughters Amy Love McGill (Ken) of Madison, Mississippi, and Virginia Love of Atlanta, Georgia; and one grandchild, Grace Love McGill.

Dr. Bill lived a life of service to his country and community. Born in Greenville, Mississippi, Bill graduated from Murrah High School of Jackson with honors and attended the University of Mississippi and the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. He completed his internship with an emphasis in pediatrics at the University Hospital in Jackson and concluded his OB-GYN residency at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. He served on staff as General Medical Officer, Commander of the United States Navy, Middle East Force. After completing his residency, he was the Assistant Chief of Service at the Naval Regional Medical Center in Pensacola, Florida. He was honorably discharged and awarded a National Service Medal and Navy Achievement Medal. Profilet’s civilian practice led him to several communities in Mississippi and Alabama including Canton, Ocean Springs, Laurel, Cleveland, Russellville, Andalusia, and then retiring after practicing in Grenada, Mississippi. He was active in the Rotary Club and Episcopal Church and served on the board of directors for Colonial Bank and Cleveland, Mississippi Chamber of Commerce.

After his family, Bill’s love was Ole Miss. He didn’t miss a game, opportunity to tailgate, chat or text with his close friends about UM sports. For 12 years, he didn’t miss a home or away football game. The Ole Miss community was his second love. He adored his “personal assistant” turned closest friend Sarah Smith Moore. To him, the amazing women from Providence Companion Care were more than just caregivers; they were family.

The family would like to deeply thank Sarah Smith Moore and Miracle Moore, the doctors, nurses, and staff of UMMC, Grenada, the dedicated caregivers from Providence Companion Care, and countless family and close friends they have leaned on.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the French Camp Academy or New Life Christian Fellowship Church, Grenada, MS.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
