Obituary for William Faith
William "Bill" Clint Faith, age 67 of Winnsboro, TX went to be with his Lord on Friday, August 25, 2017, where he surely heard “Well done, good and faithful servant”. He was born on August 17,1950 in Fayetteville, AR to the late William Clint Faith, Sr. and Joy Leake Faith. He is survived by his wife Betty Faith, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Donald and Heather Hall, David and Debbie Hall, Cliff Hall, several nieces and nephews, great nieces and great nephews, countless friends, and his church family.
Bill retired from his profession as an x-ray technologist in 2012. He was an active member of Grace Baptist Church of Mt. Pleasant, where he was a frequent speaker. Previously, Bill was a youth worker and Sunday School Teacher at First Baptist Church in Winnsboro.
After playing in a rock and roll band for approximately 10 years the Lord saved Bill, and his life was forever changed. While attending UTEP in El Paso he got a job in a local nursing home. His passion for the residents was so great that he wept as he left the building after applying for the job. A brief encounter with a Nurse’s Aide there led to a date, courtship, and a 40-year marriage to Betty, who survives. After enjoying those wonderful years of marriage, the Lord chose to take His servant home.
Bill loved his wife, the Word of God and the gospel it contained, fellowship with the saints, music, fishing, guns, and most of all his Lord.
Bill selflessly continued with his dialysis because he did not want to leave his wife, and Betty was not ready to let him go, but God had other plans. He had many trials, pains and sufferings that most will never know, yet Bill remained in the steadfast hand of his Lord, who sustained him.
Most condolences expressed to Betty contained comments on Bill’s love for God and for His Word, that he was a godly man, and how much he will be missed. Those observations were correct.
Bill is now in the presence of his Savior Jesus Christ and is reunited with his parents, parents-in-law, and other friends and loved ones. His last wish, to which his wife and countless friends would attest, is that all would hear the gospel and be saved.
His was a life well lived and as Bill would often say, “Soli Deo Gloria,” which means “to God alone be the glory”.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 2nd, 2017 at Beaty Funeral Home-Winnsboro 816 W. Broadway, Winnsboro, TX 75494 at 11:00 am, Bro. John Greene conducting.
