William Ray Sasser, 75, of Gloucester Point, died Nov. 28, 2017 at Riverside Walter Reed Hospital.

Bill was a faithful member of Union Baptist Church, and retired from Verizon as Manager after 39 years of service. 

He was an expert on old Western movies and conducted a course on the subject at William & Mary as a part of the school’s Christopher Wren Association for Lifelong Learning. He was also a voracious reader and would read several books a week, along with participating in a book club with several friends in Williamsburg. 

He will be remembered as a truly good friend, mentor, husband and father, generous with his time, his integrity and wisdom.

He is survived by his loving wife, Betty Sasser; sons, William Andrew Sasser (Jamie) and Jonathan Sasser (Jacqueline), and two grandchildren.
