William Harold “Bill” Wing, 84, of Palatka, passed from this life into eternity on Monday, January 13, 2020 at the Fairhope Hospice – Pickering House in Lancaster, Ohio. Born in Lyons, Georgia to Walter L. Wing and Flora Bell Thompson Wing, he resided in Palatka since 1977 moving there from Gillisonville, South Carolina. Bill served 13 ½ years in the U.S. Navy and was a veteran of the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Following his honorable discharge from the Navy in 1967, he was ordained into the ministry.

Brother Bill was a truly sincere man of God. I will treasure the memories I have of this wonderful man and Ms Lavern as long as I live. I will never forget our lunches at Popeyes. They treated their church like they were family. I loved how God brought them in my path. Brother Bill was there for me at the darkest time in my life. I will always be great full for his loving and kind heart. I will see them in the future when we all get to heaven , what a glorious day that will be. Rest In Peace my brother.
He loved his family so much I hope they all know how he did. He talked about them often. You all were so lucky to have him guide you on your path.

Brother Bill was such a loving, caring man who was full of wisdom and knowledge of the scriptures. When he said he would be praying for you, you knew he meant it. He will be greatly missed.

I was sorry to learn of Bill Wing's passing. He was truly a committed servant of the Lord. He was the founding pastor of Dunn's Creek Baptist Church while I was Director of Missions of St. Johns River Baptist Association. He was a positive influence for the Lord in every way.
