Willis was raised in a loving Christian home and was baptized in 1954 at age 9 at the First Baptist Church of Midland, Pennsylvania by Rev. J. R. Marbry. He graduated from Lincoln High School in Midland and soon after joined the US Army. He was stationed for three years in South Korea with Company F of the 41st infantry division. After an Honorable Discharge, Willis later moved to Philadelphia where he was an oil worker for many years for both Gulf Oil and Chevron as well as working for CDTI and the Townhouse Restaurant in Media, PA until his retirement.

Imagine This: As Willis was leaving this earthly home to his heavenly home, he was probably singing "It is well with my soul".
