Willard at a young age went fishing and lobstering. He did various jobs but enjoyed carpentry and worked for Nauss Brothers most of his life. His workshop was always open to visitors to find him attempting many projects such as buoys, wishing wells, lighthouses, and boat models that he successfully enjoyed! Many are over the South Shore. Willards passion was his boat (Little Bandit) fishing, and smoking mackerel. People from near and far came for his one of a kind smoked mackerel. Willard loved animals, cats adored him, and dogs always looked to get a treat. His furry kids are Pepper and Baby, which he loved dearly. Willard will be forever missed and always loved. Rest peacefully xoxo.
