William D. Womack
William David Womack, 51, of Charlotte, passed away Saturday, March 3, 2018. He was born December 20, 1966 in Pontiac, the son of David William and Deanna Kay (Federspiel) Womack. William graduated Suma Cum Laude from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1995 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Aeronautical Electrical Engineering. William was amazingly gifted and brilliant. From a young age he would often say or do things that amazed his parents. He could read a book and then later recite what he had read verbatim, often quoting chapter and verse. Bill was writing code for computers in the early 1980s and actually recreated a video game Asteroids on a business computer. Recently he was formatting and writing code, creating applications for smart phones, just for fun. Bill was persistent in all things as his love of learning was fierce. He taught himself to master many different musical instruments, but especially enjoyed the guitar. Bill had obtained his single-engine VFR pilot rate and flew small aircraft around Florida, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan. He even began building his own single-engine aircraft. He was an avid golfer, enjoyed camping, fishing, and bringing people together for laughter and good times. He was a doting husband and father. His family was very precious to him and his children were his greatest accomplishments.
He is survived by his wife, Denise; children: Rhandel (Cheryl Mendez) Womack of Eaton Rapids, Rheed Womack of Charlotte, Rhenton Womack of Charlotte; parents, David and Deanna Womack; sister, Lisa Bruce; mother-in-law, Carol Wheelock; brother-in-law, Donovan (Debbie) Wheelock.
Bill was preceded in death by his son, David William Womack; grandparents, Leslie and Fay Federspiel, Melvin and Shirley Womack; brothers-in-law, Daniel Wheelock, Jeffrey Bruce; nephew, Grant Bruce; and father-in-law, Donuhue Wheelock.
A memorial service was held Saturday, March 24, 2018 at Burkhead-Green-Kilgo Funeral Home in Charlotte, with Rev. Fr. Dwight Ezop celebrating.
Those desiring may make contributions in Bill’s memory to Denise Womack for the furtherance of Rhenton’s education.
