Obituary for William Charles Detrick

William Charles (“Billy”) Detrick, age 73, of Duluth, GA, passed away November 14, 2018. A Memorial Dinner will be held Saturday, November 24, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. at the Royal Park Hotel, 600 East University Dr., Rochester, MI 48307. Billy is preceded in death by his father, Vernon J. Detrick and brother, Bob Detrick. He is survived by his wife, Glenna Detrick; son, Mark Detrick (Camille); daughters, April Sparkman (Scot), Beth Kniseley (Jeff); mother, Helen Louise Detrick; sisters, Barbara Seger (Paul), Ginnie Colville (Jim), Mary Lou Hendry (Glen), Nancy Katzer; sister-in-law, Kathy Detrick; brothers, Mike Detrick (Barb), Larry Detrick (Kim), Richard Detrick (Patti); grandchildren, Emily Tunggala (Bram), Grant Sparkman, William Detrick, Grace Sparkman, Calli Kniseley, Drew Detrick and Jakson Kniseley. Billy was known to the children of family and friends alike as “Papa”. He expressed his love for his family by being the organizer of games at many family events. He would wear a striped referee shirt and anything else it took to bring everyone together and make them laugh. He kept a meticulously organized workshop full of tools and machinery to fix everything that broke and build contraptions that could solve any problem. “Papa” was very much looking forward to the birth of his first great-grandchild later this year (Emily and Bram). Online condolences may be expressed at Arrangements By: Crowell Brothers Funeral Homes & Crematory, 5051 Peachtree Ind. Blvd., Peachtree Corners, GA 30092 (770) 448-5757.
