Willie Earnest Stutler, 73, of Kingston passed away on May 7, 2020 after a lengthy illness in hospitals in Cartersville and Atlanta.

Born in Parkersburg, WV on January 7, 1947, he was the son of the late Wilbur Gorden Stutler and Gadys Gail Stutler. He was a graduate of Parkersburg High School in Parkersburg, WV where he played football and was on the 1965 State Championship Track Team. He started working in the construction industry upon graduation, working in various locations including West Virginia, Kentucky, St. Thomas, VI, and Guatemala prior to moving to Georgia where he lived and worked since 1984.

Bill, as he was known by his friends and family, was generous to a fault, never met a stranger and always tried to find good in everyone he knew. He had a passion for life and always found a way to include a bit of humor in everything he did. He was an auctioneer for 28 years and loved the challenge to find the unusual hidden treasure and always had a tall tale to tell about items he sold to keep the audience laughing.

Bill is survived by his wife, Carolyn Sue Stutler, who he had an unconditional, unselfish love for 53 years. He is also survived by his children Willie Earnest Stutler, JR, Shelia Renee Stutler, Randall Scot Stutler and Timothy Bryan Stutler; 8 grandchildren Diana Marie Davis, Richard Dustin Davis (Jessica), Victoria Stutler Biggs (Albert), Brandy Stutler Grimmett (Charlie), Billy Wayne Stutler, Chelsey Rose Stutler, Timothy Bryan Stutler, JR, Preston Scot Stutler; 10 great grandchildren Jacob Zabludousky Castillo Davis, Kristina Paige Creech, Stephen Wyatt Creech, Brooklyn Stutler, Miguel Rossi-Averill, Landon Biggs, Charlie Biggs, Stephen Ward, Brian Ward, Josh Ward; 3 sisters Thelma Winans (Jack), Helen Sue Daugherty (Ralph) and Norma Stutler; 3 brothers Ronald Stutler (Sharon), Donald Stutler (Joyce) and Robert Stutler (Trish) and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents Wilbur and Gladys Stutler, brothers Wilbur G. Stutler, JR, Charles Stutler and infant sister Grace Anna Stutler.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date as conditions allow so that family and friends may participate.

I am so sorry to here of Bill’s passing. With all the Covid 19 we had not been at auction. Trent and I are so saddened by the news we heard today as Wendell and us had returned to church today. We will miss D & D Auction and all the laugher that Bill brought to every auction we came to. If/wen there is a memorial please let us know as we would love to be able to attend if allowed. Know that our prayers are with you.

Carolyn and family, Nancy and I are heartbroken over your loss. Bill was a genuine friend, and he was always helpful to sellers at the auction, and even if we didnt buy anything, we were always entertained with Bill’s humor. Thinking back, we were entertained by Bill at the D&D Auction since the 1990s. Sometimes we would go for long periods of absence, but Bill always remembered my number, 3045. He loved his family and friends so much! Carolyn, Sheila, Dustin, Diana, and all the rest of the family, we love y’all and praying for you. Jim & Nancy Taylor

I want to express my sorrow for your loss. While I haven't been a friend for many years I can truly say I found a friend in Bill and others at the auction. I've enjoyed many nights at the auction and even when I didn't purchase much I sure enjoyed Bill's special humor and stories. Bill Stutler was truly a special guy like few I've known. His was quite a character with a heart of gold. I have a few treasures in my home that came from the auction that are special to me. However, the memories of Bill are most precious of all and I will never forget his kindness and friendship.

I haven't been to Bill's Auction in quite a while due to heavy traffic getting thru Hiram. I enjoyed many a Thursday and Saturday Evenings at the auctions always entertained by Bill and sometimes going home with a treasure! Many people have gone thru those doors including many "Characters" that a book could be written about! Bill had a big heart and loved the Auction and the people. Many a kid in Rockmart got Christmas each year due to Bill's gathering of toys each year and donating to the needy kids in Rockmart. Carolyn and kids, he was a great man and I will miss him. May the LORD be ever close to you all during this time. Joe Taylor
