April 28th, 1941 to February 17th, 2017

Willis Moncrief, 75, of Port Huron, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, February 17, 2017.

He was born April 28, 1941 in Port Huron.

Mr. Moncrief was employed with Ford Motor Company until his retirement. He was an avid fisherman and collector of memorabilia. He was a father figure to all he came in contact with and was revered by many. He spoke his mind with the truth peppered with humor. “Oh my Soul, and It is what it is.” He surveyed his community and made his rounds faithfully cruising around town at the lively speed of ten miles per hour. He enjoyed listening to music, especially the Blues and he received his high school diploma after retirement.

He was a long time member of Metropolitan Baptist Church, where he served faithfully and of which his grandmother was a founding member. He served with distinction in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. He was proud to have served and he was fond of saying, “I’m a Veteran!”
