He was preceded in death by his parents, Elbert and Pauline Dollar; brother, Richard Dollar; sisters, Hattie Jewell and Paula Beth Dollar; and his son, William Lance Dollar.

He is survived by his two daughters, Lynn Porter and husband Bob of Mineral, Va., and Lori Castro and husband William of Lakeland; brothers, Everett and wife Betty, Lewis and wife Dorthy, Maurice and wife Bonita, Charles and wife Virginia.

William was a born-again Christian, and was loved by his family and friends. William deeply loved his family and friends. He never met a stranger. He will be surely missed. William was with us for a little while and we know not what tomorrow may bring, but we know now that he is a child of the king. Praise God.
