Obituary

William “Bill” Wilson Hankins, 76, of England, Arkansas, was called to his heavenly home on Tuesday, November 30, 2021. Bill was born in England, on August 4, 1945, to Frank and Louria Burks Hankins. He was the youngest of six children.

 

At the age of sixteen Bill started working in the plumbing industry. He became a Master Plumber and started his own business. He served the community and surrounding areas for over fifty years.

 

Bill was a member of Southside Missionary Baptist Church. He was a Mason, a member of the Scottish Rite, a Shriner and a Jester. He took great pride in being a member of these organizations.

 

Bill was one of a kind! You never had to ask him what he thought and, if you did, you better be prepared for his answer. He loved his family and friends dearly.

 

Bill was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Carl Hankins and Wayman Hankins and two sisters, Wanda Grover and Evelyn Palmer. He is survived by his, sister Frankie (Bobby) Lee of England, his daughter Codi Hankins Lee of Muldrow, OK, two grandchildren, Adrianah Lee and Garett Lewis of Muldrow, OK, a special friend Mitchell Tumbleson, that he taught the tricks of the trade and thought of as a son.

 

There will be a visitation Thursday, December 2 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Wilson Robison Funeral Home Chapel. Funeral service will be held on Friday December 3 at 2:00pm in the Chapel. Burial will follow at Sylvania Cemetary in Ward, Arkansas, under the direction of Wilson Robison Funeral Home in England.
