In Loving Memory of Ill Will

Yesterday we lost a DMV Legend: William “Ill Will” Walker. Many people in the Washington, DC metro area may know Ill Will as a DJ at WKYS 93.9 and from hosting many area parties and shows.

Have you ever met a person who just had a fantastic spirit and a wonderful outlook on life?  That was Will.  I don’t think there is a person I’ve ever met who has any bad to say about him. He was seriously one of the realest men I’ve ever met.  He was so sweet, genuine and thoughtful to everyone. He supported EVERYONE  and made it clearthat he wanted everyone in the DMV to be successful.  I never once heard a word of negativity come from his mouth, I just because he always knew how precious life was. I always knew he had health problems but last week he suffered from 2 heart attacks and yesterday he succumed to his illnesses.
