Services for Daniel Konrad Willis, 56, a resident of St. Francisville, will be at Grace Episcopal Church in St. Francisville on Saturday, June 4. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until a Requiem Eucharist at 11 a.m. A graveside military burial service will follow in the Hamilton Cemetery, Tanglewild Plantation, Laurel Hill. A loving and devoted father, he left behind three children, Kathleen Willis Martens, Leah Willis Orth and Jeremy Willis; two sons-in-law, Leigh Martens and David Orth; a grandson, Edan Martens; and the mother of his children, Susan Martin Willis. He is also survived by two brothers, Thomas M. Willis and wife Peaches, and Hamilton B. Willis and wife Debbie; sister, Victoria W. Eulaerts and husband Philippe; as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by a daughter, Allison Leigh Willis; and his parents, Hamilton Barrow Willis and Victoria Horner Willis. He was born Aug. 11, 1954, and died Monday, May 30, 2011. A native of West Feliciana Parish, he graduated from Episcopal High School in 1972 and from LSU Law School in 1984, having earned a bachelor of science degree in political science in 1980. He served in the Marine Corps from 1975-78, stationed at Camp Pendleton, where he attained the rank of corporal. He was a member of Grace Episcopal Church, St John's Episcopal Church, the American Bar Association, the West Feliciana Bar Association and the West Feliciana Poker Club. He enjoyed teaching Sunday school for many years at Grace Church. His defense of those less fortunate brought him great satisfaction in life. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to Marines Helping Marines at www.MarinesHelpingMarines.org. He is deeply loved and will be sadly missed by family and friends alike. His charitable nature will not soon be forgotten and will never be replaced. Share sympathies, memories and condolences at www.charletfuneralhome.com.
