Obituary for William Harry "Billy" Werline

Mr. William Harry “Billy” Werline, age 82, of Tollesboro, Kentucky, passed away Friday morning, October 4, 2019, at his residence.

He was born August 9, 1937, in Lewis County, Kentucky, a son of the late William Jacob and Catherine Henderson Werline.

Billy proudly served his country in the United States Army and worked until his retirement for CSX Railroad. He would commonly be found joking around Tollesboro and entertaining others or bringing smiles to everyone at the oncologist clinic. His laugh was infectious! Billy had never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a hand. If he wasn’t at Ron’s, he could be found sitting on his back porch, drinking coffee, and watching his hummingbirds or riding in a car looking at the scenery on the backroads of Lewis County. Billy took pride in his history of building railroads, mowing his yard, his home cooking, and most of all, his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Delbert Werline and Elmer Lee Werline, and one sister, Linda Porter.

Billy is survived by his wife of 56 years, Linda Hord Werline; one son, Trent Werline (Denise) of Fleming County, Kentucky; three daughters, Tammie Brown (Ricky), Tina Applegate (Benny) all of Foxport, Kentucky, and Tracy Reese of Mt. Carmel, Kentucky; seven grandchildren, Tiffany Lawson, Trenton Applegate, Dustin Smith, Jacob Werline, Joshua Werline, Trista Reese and Tessa Reese; four great grandchildren; and four sisters, Joyce Hampton, Wanda Sue Hughes, Jeannie Mustard, and Mary Etta Cooper, all of Tollesboro, Kentucky. He also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss him.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, October 8, 2019, at Tollesboro Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Tollesboro, Kentucky, with Brother Charles Hampton, Brother Keith Sargent and Brother Layne Wagner officiating. Burial will follow in the Hillcrest Garden of Memories in Mason County, Kentucky, with full military honors presented by Monte Lewis Stamm Memorial Post No. 5438.

Friends may visit from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, October 7, 2019, and after 9 a.m. on Tuesday at Tollesboro Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 11918 KY 57, Tollesboro, Kentucky 41189.
