Bill was born on September 21, 1930 in Sherrodsville, Ohio to Laird and Floy Livingston Jennings. He was a Korean War veteran who served his country in both the Navy and the Air Force. Bill was the epitome of a self-made man. He was an honest man who believed a handshake was as a valid as a signed contract. He was a founding member of WRING, an organization formed to attract industry to Warner Robins and Houston County. Bill was a hard-working businessman, but he always put his family first.
He is preceded in death by his wife and the love of his life, Charlene Rawlings Jennings; father, Laird Jennings; mother and stepfather Floy and William Leatherman; Son, William Jennings, Jr. and daughter, Cheryl Cross; brother, Curtis Jennings.
He will always be loved and missed by his daughters Jackie Colson (Bob), Perry; Kelly Ennis (Larry), Macon; Sister, Helen (Billy) Young; sister-in law, Lori Jennings, 11 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren.
