William Washington “Bill” Huckabey

Services for William “Bill” Huckabey will be held at 12pm on July 23, 2019, at First Pentecostal Church of Kansas City. A visitation will be from 10 am to service time.

Bill went on to his reward for a live well lived on Friday, July 19, 2019.

Bill was born on September 7, 1955 in Kansas City, MO. He went on to work various jobs, and was even the drummer of a Gospel group, Solid Gospel, and also played the drums on another Gospel album. In the spring of 1980 he became a heavy construction laborer for Union 663 and was contracted out to Hunt MidWest Enterprises where he worked faithfully for 22.5 years.
He met his wife, Silene (Hoggatt) Huckabey, on a blind date and they married on May 19, 1978. They had two children, Marcelle Lynne in November of 1979 and Joshua Leon in May of 1982.
They, with their children, attended the First Pentecostal Church of Kansas City, where Bill was a member for 39 years.

Bill is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Silene Huckabey of the home, His daughter, Marcelle Fowler, Son in law, Joe Fowler, and three grandchildren; Joshua, Caleb, and Faith; two brothers, Paul (Allison) and Bobby Huckabey, and one sister Patricia Christ (Carl) and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his son, Joshua L Huckabey, his father, William A Huckabey, his mother, Nora B Huckabey, and two sisters, Elizabeth Lopez and Rebecca Lewis.

To know Bill was to love him. He loved his family fiercely and loved the one God, Acts 2:38 Apostolic message even more. He lived his life solely for the Lord and his family. His absence will be loud, just as he was. He loved all things music and was an amazing drummer. He will be missed more than words can say…..Save a place for us; we’ll be there soon!

Dear Huckabey Family, I am sorry I did not make it to the funeral. I remember the last time I seen Silene and Billy at my job. I was joking around with them because usually it was Silene in the electric cart but this time it was billy I was joking with them and said you guys switched. I didn’t know he was so sick. I used to love to listen to you play those drums you gave it your all. You are the best drummer I have ever heard. R.I.P. my friend.

You were an inspiration to so many. You know you were loved but I hope you know how much you will be missed.
