William or “Billy” as some would know him, was born July 15, 1947 to William and Mildred Standard. His childhood was spent enjoying hours of play outside with many neighborhood friends. He spent his summers in West Monroe with his grandparents catching lizards, picking figs, and being surrounded by farm life. He graduated from Northeast Louisiana University with a degree in Pharmacy in 1970 and settled in Shreveport with his wife Marsha. In his free time, he loved to play golf as well as bowl. He was a tender-hearted, loving person and was affectionately named “Gentle Giant” by one of his customers at the pharmacy. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.
