William “Bill” Joseph Grissett went to meet his Savior on July 4, 2024, at the age of 92.

He had a long and fruitful life. He was preceded in death by his wife of 68 years, Zelda; parents, Asbury and Esther Grissett, brothers, Benjamin Arnold Grissett, Lynn Hart Grissett, Kenneth Lavon Grissett, and Bobby Joe Grissett, two sisters, Elizabeth “Sister” Adams and Mary Capps and son-in-law, Joseph Benjamin Baugher.

He is survived by two daughters, Zelda Diane Baugher and Donna (Bobby) McCarley; granddaughters, Kelly Baugher, Jennifer (Jason) Graham, and Kim (Manny) Ortiz; five great-grandchildren, two brothers, Lamar Grissett and Ronald (Barbara) Grissett, many nieces and nephews, numerous in-laws and his faithful dog, Lady, and special friends, Tommy, Dee Dee and Cash Morgan.

Bill retired from the Alatex and later retired from the United States Postal Service. He also served in the U.S. Army. He enjoyed traveling with his in-laws and enjoyed living on Point A Lake.

We would like to extend our appreciation to all of his caregivers who helped him during these last months and to Aveanna Hospice.

Bill leaves precious memories for those who knew him and loved him.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Andalusia Animal Shelter and Aveanna Hospice.

There will be a celebration of Life on Saturday, July 6, 1:30 p.m., at Liberty Home Baptist Church. The family will accept friends starting at 1 p.m.
