Dr. William V. “Bill” Ginn, Jr., 87, of Center, passed away March 8, 2018, in Center.

Memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m., Saturday, April 7, 2018, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center with Rev. Karen Jones officiating.

Bill was born February 7, 1931, in Little Rock, Arkansas, to Marie and William V. Ginn. The Ginns moved to Memphis, Tennessee, when Bill was a young child.  Bill graduated from Memphis State University, where he majored in Pre-pharmacy. He then graduated from the University Of Tennessee School Of Pharmacy, where he was a member of Rho Chi, the National Honor Society of Pharmacy. Following graduation, he went to Miami, Florida to do pharmacy internship.  It was there that he met the future Mrs. Ginn.  He was invited to join the Army as a 2nd Lieutenant, and was sent to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.  It was there that Eleanor and Bill were married in the Post Chapel.  After their honeymoon, the Ginns were sent to Fort Sill Oklahoma in Lawton, Oklahoma. It was there that Bill became a helicopter pilot, and then a helicopter pilot instructor.  This promotion meant another move to Ozark, Alabama, the Home of Fort Rucker, the Helicopter Training Base.  After two years, he was granted an early release, and he entered the University Of Tennessee School Of Medicine in Memphis, Tennessee.  He graduated from the School of Medicine as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the National Honor Society of Medicine. 

After graduation, he did an internship and surgery residency at Methodist Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  Bill practiced in Memphis with a surgical group, until he was asked to join a medical group in Union City, Tennessee. In 1977, he moved to Center, Texas, to join the Memorial Clinic with Doctors Hunter Mallory and Joe B. Hooker.  In 1992, he was asked to head the Tenaha Clinic.  He was there until he retired in 1992.  Bill was a man of integrity with a great compassion for his patients.  His greatest gift was what he gave to his patients, a caring reassurance that their doctor had cared for them as he sat at the end of the hospital bed and did what no x-ray, scan or lab could do.  Bill was a member of First United Methodist Church in Center. 

Bill was a golfer, duck hunter, fisherman, wood carver of caricatures, carpenter, artist, banjo player, avid reader, bluegrass music fan and jazz fan.  He was always interested in furthering his knowledge of many subjects.  The family enjoyed camping and travelling.  Travelling to bluegrass festivals in “Little Darlin” was a favorite weekend adventure for Bill and Eleanor.  Thursday was a special day for Bill.  That’s the day the “Lunch Brunch” met to eat and ponder the great problems of our world.

Bill is survived by
Wife of 64 years and best friend: Eleanor of Center, Texas
