CLAY COUNTY — William R. (Bill) Jackson, 84, died peacefully on Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, surrounded by family and friends.

He was a devoted father to Janell Baker Jackson and Amy Jackson (Stephen) Salay; grandfather to Shannon R. McNamara, Rachel Elise and Stephen William Salay; and great-grandfather to Ashton C. Fleming and Alyssa J. Huffman. He was a brother to Wayne R. Jackson and his wife Patty, and Esther M. Reagin of Cory. Additionally, he is survived by Marsha E. (Ames) Jackson.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Ernest L. Jackson; and sister, Joanna F. Minor. He is survived by many nieces and nephews and a large extended family, as well as many life-long friends.
