He put other peoples needs over his own, doing the Lord's work. Will was a member of the Word Church and Covenant Promise Church. Every month he supported "Back to Jesus Christian Fellowship Mission for Orphans" in the Philippines. The children there called him Pastor Will and sent him cards and letters.
