A true pillar of our community has passed away.
I was saddened this morning to learn of the passing of William Sumerford. I had the opportunity to get to know Mr. Sumerford over the past two years and he was truly a giant among men.
Mr. Sumerford was passionate and always argued for what he believed in. While not everyone agreed with Mr. Sumerford's politics or principles, Bill always treated everyone with respect and dignity.
Mr. Sumerford's passing is a loss for Amarillo. He will be missed.
